When you argue with a fox outside the cottage, it's not the thing to sit in the middle of the road and make a lot of noise thinking that he'll go away Frank.
It's not the thing to call Amie to help you out either.
She might be getting on, but she saw the fox off. No noise involved, Amie's presence was enough !
She can be really threatening when she wants to be.
After all the noise, who do you think was the first back through the door ?
