Maybe look into goddesses or gods with a fox as a symbol? I know Japanese culture has a few fox goddesses and spirits. The Kitsune being the first that comes to mind.
Or maybe take some time to meditate on what a fox symbolizes to you. Perhaps a guiding spirit is trying to gently encourage you to look more into those qualities and characteristics.
And keep us updated. As someone who is also being followed by a particular animal and looking into the goddess connection I'm curious to see how a similar situation plays out for someone else!
