Sometimes, animals just get it. If we could be anywhere in the world on a sunny afternoon, where would it be? Probably sunbathing on a picturesque rooftop. The only difference between us and a fox, spotted by Twitter user @tombellforever, is that the fox had the courage and follow-through to make that dream a reality.
After climbing up a fire escape, the fox inspired scores of internet users to live their best, most self-caring lives.

The world is now divided into two groups of people: those who are near foxes, and those who wish for more in their lives.

As far as wild animals go, that fox seems about as welcome in civilization as they come.
