Your story reminds me of the time we were away on a trip (forget where) and 
son and daughter-in-law were minding the cats and plants.  They came by in 
the evening and opened the house to let cats in and out - went about watering 
plants.  They returned to the kitchen to find a pair of skunks happily eating 
from the cats' dishes.  My son said all he could think was "What will I tell 
Ma?"  Fortunately they did nothing, and the skunks finished the cat food and 
left the way they had come without any more problems.  They didn't leave the 
outside doors open again.   Auralie
