A London man got quite the wake up call Tuesday morning. He rolled over in bed to find himself face to face with a fox. It seems the animal had gotten in through the cat door.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. A London man got quite the wake up call Tuesday morning. He felt what he thought was a nuzzle from his girlfriend lying next to him in bed, but when he rolled over he found himself face to face with a fox. It seems the girlfriend had gone to work and the animal had come in through the cat door.

Britain's tabloid The Sun pretty much summed up the story in this headline: "I Had a Real Fox in my Bed the Other Day and it Wasn't the Missus." It's MORNING EDITION.
