Foxes are usually great at finding spots to hide, which is why many Londoners were taken aback when one was found dozing on a second-floor window ledge of a Notting Hill home this week.

Author Rachel Johnson, the sister of London’s mayor Boris Johnson, was the first to spot the drowsy fox.

“It must have got up via the scaffolding on the house next door,” she told the Standard. “There are lots of them in the neighborhood, always in the gardens—they seem to own the place. But when I saw this one it was hard to feel the same sense of rage.”
