Cute video alert: These rescued foxes think they're puppies

They'll even play fetch ... if they feel like it.

What's it like to have a pet fox?

We asked 22-year-old Mikayla Raines that question because she currently has five foxes at her family's place in Lakeville. She rescues the animals from fur farms – places that raise foxes just for their soft fur coats.

"They're very different from a cat or a dog," Raines explained. "It's hard to describe them because they're a fox."

She said foxes are similar to dogs – if they stayed like destructive, playful puppies their whole lives. And similar to cats in that foxes do what they want, when they want.

But they're definitely not indoor pets – unless you're like Raines and willing to get rid of all your furniture (foxes will destroy everything).
