On the topic of the caddies, they are flimsy, but just about up to the task at hand. That said, the lock on them bends about all over the place.

Would be interesting to see if any foxes have indeed learned to knock the handle down to get them open. Maybe just by pure luck? Is it happening a lot?

Re foxes, they are a very love / hate thing. Personally I am not bothered by them, no worse than cats, and certainly more welcome than rats.
Feeding them, hmmm, not a fan I have to say.

Westminster Council did a review a while back about the rat population, especially around Soho, and found one simple fact. Mankind is to blame.

Foxes are the same, while we call them dirty, it is the human race who needs to act. Not so much by culling, but learning to be responsible for their own rubbish. While foxes are fed by humans in a limited number of cases, and one of two catch something and eat it, the rest successfully scavenge from the filth of us humans.

Back to the caddy again, I hope that the design is under review. Friends from other boroughs tell me some of theirs are of better and stronger design. I am yet to see for myself.
