I do understand that the word "foxy" means "sly" but doesn't "foxy" normally refers to something that's "sexually attractive"?
Yes, it can mean that someone, usually a woman, is sexually attractive. It depends on the context. When using "foxy," the sentences are typically shorter and are usually used to describe a woman. Here is a list of examples with "foxy" or "fox," meaning sexually attractive. Ex: She's a stone-cold fox. Ex: Foxy mama. In this scenario, they use "Foxy" to show that this character is a fox. You may have already noticed this, but all the names rhyme in this video: Foxy Loxy, Henny Penny, Cocky Locky, etc. This was done as a play on the character's species and also done so the names would rhyme.
