Simon Hayes of London was loading the dishwasher and left the room without closing the appliance door. When he returned, there was a juvenile fox inside, among the dirty dishes on the lower rack! This being the 21st century, Hayes’ first move was to make sure to get the incident on video. He moved the dish rack out of his way and tried to coax it out, but the kit retreated further into the washer. Hayes is a veterinarian and not afraid of wildlife, so he used a broom to scare the fox out.
The cub's mother could be heard "calling" it from the garden, he said.
He added: "I was surprised to see him there, but we regularly see foxes nearby.
"We saw three fox cubs in the garden last summer, and we have three cats and a dog and they regularly interact with foxes."
The back door had been open and the kit may have been attracted to the aroma of food on the dishes. -via Arbroath
