Kit is a juvenile red fox that can be acquired by an adopted child as a pet in The Elder Scrolls V: Hearthfire.

If the Dragonborn has adopted a female child, they may bring the fox home and ask to keep it as a pet. If the child is allowed to keep Kit, there will be no required upkeep.


  • The child who owns Kit never mentions its name, and it is not shown when looked at either. It only shows after the animal has died.
  • If a child is allowed to keep Kit, one cannot get the fox to leave. The only way to get rid of the pet is to kill it, which will result in the adopted children hating the Dragonborn. An easy way to avoid this is to cast Fury or Frenzy on Kit and have a follower, the child or any other NPC kill it.
  • Kit is a term for a baby fox.

    • When does ur child get it
    • The child will randomly "bring it home," so you have to wait until a pet shows up, then accept or deny them.
