WATCH: The tiny rescued fox cub being looked after in Portreath

Meet the tiny rescued fox cub being looked after in Portreath.

Little Mavis was taken in by Feadon Farm at the Gwel an Mor resort, after she was found struggling in the wild.

Now the cub can't go back because she wouldn't survive, so staff there are helping to raise her.

And have you seen anything more adorable?

Welcoming her to Feadon Farm, her new family have since ran a competition to name her - and we think Mavis couldn't suit her more!

But while they say she will now have a long and happy life with the rest of the residents, they are also urging people to be aware that, no matter how cute they are, foxes don't make pets.

They posted to the Facebook page: "Say hello to.....Mavis!

"After our competition to name our new little fox cub the team at Feadon Farm went through all your fab ideas and chose Laura Christon's suggestion of the name Mavis.

"Thanks everyone for all the lovely names and for taking part!

"Mavis hopes to meet you all soon at Feadon Farm!"

A spokesperson added: "Mavis the fox cub is a rescue and can't go back to the wild as she wouldn’t survive.

"Our lovely team from Feadon Farm are looking after her so she can have a happy life.

"Please remember, foxes DO NOT make pets!"
