200351488-001A stunned lady from Birmingham was surprised to be woken up one night when a young fox decided to get some rest by jumping onto her bed. Speaking to BBC this week (September 1st), Mary Small spoke of how she was busy dozing on her bed at her home in Bournville, the home of Cadbury chocolate. At first, she believed it to be a large cat, though later realised the error of her ways as it dashed about her home before hiding under a table. Mrs Small's husband, Tony, grabbed his camera and took a photo of the local wildlife before it then dashed out of the house. The door had remained open after the man of the house headed outside into the garden to smoke his pipe. "I was still sleeping, snuggling nicely when something jumped on me and woke me up," Mrs Small told the BBC. "He (the fox) shot downstairs, I ran for the nearest loo and my husband ran for his nearest camera."
