The Vulpes Decision by shadowfox014 The Vulpes Decision by shadowfox014
Gen-o-Tech Industries, paving the way for genetic alteration since 2009!

For $500- cash- you could become bigger, stronger, or even furrier. Dan had seen this advertisement while walking through town and it caught his eye. He had never really considered taking up the offer, but there was one time that sparked his interest enough. You see, Dan had been heading home from the store when he saw a tiger walk out of a shop across the street. The tiger walked out on two feet, wearing clothes like anyone else and was talking with some human friends. At that moment, Dan realized that that could be him. He went straight to the bank, withdrew some money, and gave the company a call. He scheduled an appointment for the weekend and waited.

The company’s building was sketchy, and Dan knew that. The building was hidden half-way around the city, down a few alleyways, and past some abandoned structures. After some time walking, he came across the address he was given. He walked through a half broken door up to a small wooden desk with a woman sitting behind it filing her nails.

“Hi, I’m here for the treatment,“ Dan calmly stated.

“Appointment?” she asked, momentarily stopping to look at him.

“Yeah, for Dan.”

“Go right in and sit down,” replied the woman, going back to her nail filing.

The woman pointed to a large metal door just off to the right of them both. Dan looked at the door for a second and momentarily back at the secretary before heading into the room. As Dan walked into the what he assumed to be the operating room he looked around at all the complex equipment that cluttered the entire space. He sat down at the only place he could find: a large metal chair in the center with straps that closely resembled a barbershop chair. Not too long after sitting down a doctor walked in to greet him.

“Dan, you’re here to become a fox, right?”

For some reason hearing those words out loud like that made Dan a tad uneasy. Should he go through with this?

“Y-Yeah,” Dan made out, slightly nervous.

It was like a switch suddenly changed the mood in the air because the doctor smiled and gave Dan a thumbs up.

“Alright, sounds good! Follow me and we’ll make you into your new furry self.”

The doctor motioned for Dan to follow him and he left. Dan followed the doctor into another room that was identical to a normal doctor’s office, corny posters on the wall and everything. This seemed a bit odd to him; not the fact it looked so normal, just that he was expecting something more like out of the transformation stories and pictures he had read and seen. The doctor pulled out a mirror and a syringe. He handed Dan the mirror.

“Here you go Dan, you can look at your human self, one last time.”
Dan took the mirror and looked back at his human reflection. After a few seconds, he set it down.

“Alright, I’m ready.”

“The target is the Vulpes Vulpes, the red fox, am I correct?”


“Alright, I’m going to give you this sedative and we’ll get started. “

Dan flinched slightly as the needle pricked his skin. Almost immediately he felt his body go numb. As the doctor spoke to him about his changes, Dan felt like time was lagging behind. He was only able to grasp a few words.


Dan began to lose consciousness as the changes began. He felt his skin tingle as his new coat of red fox fur began to grow. He felt his fingers growing claws, his feet elongating into paws, and his spine slowly extending. Even in this state of numb he could feel his ears changing as well into pointed fox ears. As his nose pushed out into a vulpine muzzle, Dan fell asleep.

When Dan awoke, he was lying on his back on the table. As he opened his eyes, he felt that his entire body was different. His eyesight, hearing, and smelling were all intense. Everything was clearer. He sat up on the table and looked around for the mirror. He saw it lying on the cart near him and he reached for it. He froze when he saw his arm. Hovering right over the mirror he saw a furred and clawed hand with orange and black fur just like a fox’s. He grabbed the mirror and looked at himself. He was a fox. An anthropomorphic fox that is; just like his fursona. Everything about him was different. He looked over his new body with awe, feeling himself to see if it was real. And it was. His tail began to swish behind him and the biggest smile he had ever smiled went across his muzzle. Dan began to yip and giggle with joy. He was the fox he always wanted to be. The treatment had worked! Just then, the doctor walked in.

“So I see you like the alterations.”

“Oh yes, every bit!”

“That’s good. Now, your body has not had enough time to get used to your new senses and appendages, so you head home and get some rest.”

“Yes of course!” exclaimed a happy Dan, tail wagging. “Thank you so much!”

Dan hopped off the table out of excitement, but fell over a bit due to his inexperience with digigrade feet. He thanked the doctor, gave him the cash for the treatment, and headed home. On the way back, Dan got all the looks someone in his position would get; his newly sensitive ears picking up all the comments behind his back. Dan didn’t care though; he loved his new foxy features. As soon as he made it home he was tired. The long walk on his new paws had taken all the energy out of him. Dan went into his room, disrobed, and looked at his new fur coat in the mirror. His tail was still swishing out of joy. As he stripped down, he crawled into bed. He glanced across from him at a small fox plush and used a clawed hand to grab it and pull it close to him. He cuddled the plush and licked its button nose. Dan smiled as he closed his eyes and laid his new tail across his legs. Tomorrow was looking to be one of the greatest in his life.
