Watch A Baby Fox Grow Up With Her Favorite Teddy Bear

They really do grow up so fast.

The Wildlife Aid Foundation, a U.K.-based charity dedicated to the rescue, care and rehabilitation of orphaned animals in need, recently shared a heartwarming timelapse video on YouTube of a female fox cub. The video, shot over the course of five weeks, documented the cub's growth alongside her beloved stuffed animal.

Her transformation from a tiny, brown ball of fluff to a fully fledged red fox is pretty incredible.

On Day 1, her eyes appear closed as she bravely wobbles around her little playground.

It takes about two weeks for a young fox to open her eyes after birth.

On Day 7, there's still a bit of wobble in her movement, but, nonetheless, she's still exploring.

By Day 15, her wide-open eyes finally make an appearance. She's walking with more confidence now while still sticking close to her stuffed companion.

By Day 20, she's more than comfortable with settling down for a nap alongside her bear (presumably after a long day of no work and all play).

In the wild, red foxes don't usually leave their mothers' dens to live on their own until they're about 8 to 10 months old.

To see what she looks like by Day 35, all grown up with her gorgeous red fur, check out the video below:
