Here, kitty, kitty, kitty

Here's what I found out on the deck this evening, calmly eating my cats' food. This little stinker didn't even run away when I opened the slider to get his picture. Isn't he cute? Didn't even spray me. I think I'll keep him.

Skunks are stinky, but they are pretty

Sometimes they look like a kitty

White stripe up back, the rest all black

They’ll make their home under a shack

Don’t give a skunk anxiety

He’ll begin to pee . . . and pee

Putrid is that wretched smell

So you’ve met a skunk, I can tell

Now you’re stinky, as stinky can get

Do not worry --- do not fret

Take a bath in tomato juice

Oh, let that stinky smell get loose

Your idea of cute and mine differ slightly, LOL! Luckily we have not seen one of these critters eating our cat food, it is usually either a raccoon or oppossum, or the neighbor's cat.

Have a great weekend!

Oh I think he is cute. I have friends who have a skunk as a pet. It is inside and she carries him around every where. he lays his head on her shoulder and snuggles right up to them. He doesn't spray.

Very cute but better left outdoors. I can only imagine what would happen if it came in through the pet door and was confronted by one of your cats. Holy moly, you'd have to move.
