Foxes pop up in a lot of myths.  In Cherokee myths, “tsu-la” / “fox” shows up in a story explaining why rabbits have short tails.  Tsu-la tricks the rabbit into getting his tail stuck in a frozen lake.

In Chinese lore, the kitsune are foxes that possess magical abilities.  While they sometimes trick people, they are also shown as being very faithful and are guardians and protectors.  The more tails there have, the older and wiser it is.  They can have as many as nine.

There’s nothing like a little fox tail …
