Wild fox is seen in video cuddling in bed with his owner who is recovering from eye surgery

A adorable wild fox who was nursed back to health by a kind-hearted man last year, has returned the favour by snuggling up with him in bed as he recovers from eye surgery.

Woody, a one-year-old red fox, has been pictured nestling up with 70-year-old Geoff Grewcock, from Nuneaton, Warwickshire, who underwent treatment for a detached retina on 25th March.

A sweet clip shows the incredible bond between the pair as Woody jumps up into the bed, allowing Geoff to stroke his fur as he sniffs at a scone. 

Woody lives with Geoff at home, but Geoff also works at the Wildlife Sanctuary, in Warwickshire.

The sanctuary itself is located behind Geoff’s bungalow, where the little Fox is able to play with his furry companions who also live at the sanctuary – including dogs, foxes and deer.

Wildlife worker Geoff revealed his canine companion has been a real ‘morale booster’ for him during his recovery.

He saved the little fox’s life a year ago, after he found the week-old cub collapsed by the side of a road, needing 150 ticks removed from his fur, along with medication and fluids.

It seems Woody has never forgotten Geoff’s loyalty as he hasn’t left his side since his surgery six weeks ago.

Geoff said: ‘We knew we couldn’t release him, it was a choice of either putting him to sleep – which we wouldn’t do- or keeping him, and now he’s such an important family pet.

‘I had surgery on my retina a few weeks ago and Woody hasn’t left my side in bed.

‘Woody has snuggled up in bed before but normally likes to be by himself in bed, but I think he knew I was unwell and jumped up to be with me.

‘It helped me so much, it was a real morale booster when he came to see me and gave me an incentive to get back to it, so I could be outside with the animals.’
