Cearan Mhoire Artful

A stable can be an alluring place to a fox. From the soft, warm nooks and crannies, to the barns filled with mice, to the tasty tidbits dropped about, it certainly is a fox haven.

Fleet and Nimble are more shy than Art and tend to keep to the out-buildings and pastures.

Cearan Mhoire Yukimatsuri

Yuki is a rare albino tanuki from a collection of Japanses animals and artefacts from an estate in Wessex.

Cearan Mhoire Sasuke & Ponkichi

Sasuki and Ponkichi are a pair of normally coloured tanuki. They came from the same collection as Yuki.
