The CatFox is a strange and elusive creature.  Most times she can found napping, acquiring your food, antagonizing other living creatures, or manipulating me into doing whatever she wants. She’s my 18 pounds of sassy Shiba Inu fur child, and I love her to absolute pieces. She has been my hiking buddy for over 4,000 miles on the long trails. Katana is a hardy little mountain dog that eats up tough miles and craps out dainty paw prints. She steals the hearts of all who meet her… and sometimes their food too.
