Foxes were the pets I was most excited about when Cataclysm came, and I remain as enamoured of them as before. My sole desire for Cataclysm was to make a Goblin hunter with a white fox, and indeed, my Pearl was Laz's most precious friend for some 30 levels, until I realised that their bond was weakening. Since then, Pearl has passed away (she was an old girl, after all) and for now, my favourite skin is not in use by any hunter (though it will be).
On to the foxes I DO have however.
Nöpö is Zsofia's independent, self-sufficient friend. The two do not live together, but occasionally meet up in the woods to spend some time together. She's a good hunter and a loyal friend, although she bows to nobody's authority. I really like the eyes of all the foxes, but these green ones are perhaps my favourite. So bright and a beautiful contrast to the red fur.
Please excuse the utterly adorable photo-bomb rat, who I simply could not crop out of the picture. Malory and Alb are relaxing here in one of their favourite places. Malory started life as a sort of "have to get this fox on someone" pet, but rather cleverly wiled her way into my affections during an exciting evening of RP, when her sneaky, clever and cheery ways made a big impression on both myself and my RP companions. Since then, Malory has been in the top five for Alb, and when hanging around the city, it will be Mal with her more often than not.
Holly's teeth are quite horrible here, but really it doesn't matter. Unfortunately, although I have owned and actively used Holly since the skin was put in-game, a personality will simply not appear. I am still loath to get rid of her as she is truly beautiful and suits Lome in looks very well indeed. I just hope that eventually the two will find common ground.
Goldengrain is young and inquisitive and very pretty. He has always been a lucky pet for Dawn, and while their bond is not terribly strong, I am still quite attached to him.
