COMPETITION: Win a hand-painted skulk of foxes worth £200

That’s the collective noun for a group of foxes – a skulk. I looked it up and everything. You can also call it a leash of foxes apparently, but that sounds very un-fox like to me. How many foxes have you ever seen on a leash?

I believe you can also call them a troop of foxes, but then I just imagine them all in little outfits, walking on their back legs and playing drums. Adorable yes, realistic no. Today then I am giving away a skulk of foxes. That’s final.

This particular skulk is painted by a lovely lady called, ironically, Cat. Cat is passionate about about animals and colour and loves creating art that brings a smile to people’s faces.  All of Cat’s pictures are painted to order, so she can work to any desired size, colour scheme and budget. You can see more at her website here.

Cat has very generously offered to give away this picture, which is 40cm square and would normally cost £200. Cat is literally painting this as we speak, just for this competition, so I feel very honoured indeed.

Isn’t it adorable? To be in with a chance to win you have to show Cat (and the skulk) as much love as possible via the Rafflecopter widget below. The competition will end on Monday 2nd December so you can have your foxes in time for Christmas.

Good luck!
