Hi, I’m Fitz!

About Fitz

Fitz is a fox named after the American short-story writer and novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald, known for his turbulent personal life and his famous novel The Great Gatsby.

Like Fitzgerald, Fitz is a charming old sport who is always up for a good party! He loves to travel but Paris holds a special place in his heart. Nobody’s quite sure why, but his favorite food is turkey leftovers.
