Cat sees off Fox, Cat keeps his stash of rabbits, squirrels and various other under Bush to left, fox checks out stash twice a day, but got caught out, he'll be back!!
No interactions present.
Good to see this sort of interaction!
I love this one. On paper foxes should easily win out in any confrontation with cats. Yet from anecdotal evidence foxes shy away from cats. The fox is a powerful predator, just look at the teeth on the skull at:
In this case the fox should just walk up and take the cats 'stash' but it sneaks around.
Is this a feral cat or someone's pet? On a more controversial note you say the cat has a stash of dead bodies under the bush, an indication of the impact this predator has on our wildlife.

thank you for your comments, He is a "pet" cat, he only seems to eat the heads and leaves the bodies!, which are then stolen by the Fox, Crows or Magpies,so he is providing a service to the community.
Good to see the two animals close to one another for a size comparision. Many people that haven't seen a fox seem to think they are the size of a small wolf and will carry off children and babies:-)

If only! The giant foxes you mention could start with my four year old, at least when he throws one of his tantrums.
