Well, I know that they behave as stereotypical foxes do; sly, cunning, loves to play tricks. Kitsune can be loyal protectors though, and the longer they live, more tails they can grow.
Overall, they're foxes that have superior intelligence, long lives, and magical powers.
The reason I asked is because I was told by the spirits too.
And yes google is what I have studied.
Anyway the reason they asked is because there is something missing in the info I have studied.
Red markings the color of blood and put on so as if with a paint brush. I can't find any information or maybe I do not no what to ask so I have gone to practioners of sorcery to find more info

Firstly, there is nothing in this post which is related to 'occultism,' but more religions and folklore in Japan.
I would not recommend just using Google. Search engines and repositories of information like Wikipedia can be a place to start research, as it can point a person in a direction for real research.
For the type and purpose of the markings, it is important to go to the source. Find actual books, or at the very least reliable resources, on the folklore and spiritual beliefs from that tradition. I cannot stress enough how easy it is to find misinformed people writing lectures on things they actually have very little idea about.
Yes: There are people who frequent this site who study these things. But it is always better to do research yourself. I could claim to be anything, for example, and speak with any sort of authority on an obscure matter which I can muster. It does not make me what I claim.
