Hi friends! Reef the fox here with your weekly “Reef’s Report.” Well, mom ordered a custom cake for little Kai’s first birthday on Thursday, May 4 and it was delicious. Our favorite custom bakers at Healthy D’Lites made it for him. They make pet-safe treats and cakes and also amazingly tasty human snacks. 

If you live in the Upper Keys, you can find their treats at Coco Plum place in Key Largo or at the Seaside Teahouse in Islamorada. Go get you some, like now. 

I have been working on getting some good interviews for readers. I have reached out to some very famous animals, both human and non-human, so we will see who responds to my requests. I know it can be intimidating being interviewed by me, but I ask the fun questions, not the tough ones. 

This is the time of year when all of us foxes start to lose our winter coats. Kai kicked off the season by shedding his entire coat in record time — like two days. He went from a fluffy little marshmallow to a short-haired chihuahua-looking beast in an alarmingly short amount of time. I woke up and thought mom had brought home a new fox in the middle of the night. Seriously, it was too much to process before breakfast last week. This is also the time of year when mom gets a lot of comments on our social media pages regarding our health. People see us in our summer suits, after shedding our winter coats, and think we are sick, starving or being neglected. I can tell you, none of those things are happening here. 

Events around town: On Sunday, May 7, MarrVelous Pet Rescues is hosting their Adopt A Shelter Pet Day from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at 68 Silver Springs Drive in Key Largo (park and enter on Rock Harbor Drive). The day will include yoga and puppies from 9 to 10 a.m. It’s $20 per person. Bring your mat and they’ll bring the puppies. Free training from the Keys Pet Nanny will go from 10 a.m. to noon. Also, come meet some furry friends seeking a “furever” home throughout the event. 

Mom is thinking about hosting another annual fundraiser for us this year but she said she needs help. It was a lot of work for her last year. So if any of our supporters know how to plan a good event, email me at [email protected] to let me know your ideas.

Anywho, that’s all for this week. Until next time, Reef, over and out!

Reef was born on a fur farm on or around March 28, 2021. He was able to be rescued when his mother and siblings started to reject him. Reef is missing toes on his front, right paw and the tip of his tail is missing due to injuries sustained in his short time on the fur farm. Reef arrived at Key Largo on May 6, 2021 by Nicole Navarro, of Pawsitive Beginnings Inc.
