Re: pet skunk

YEP...he was "de-pewed". I lived in the country growing up..and I live in the country now. We ALWAYS have some odd critter at our place. Last year...we found 2 baby oppossums in a feed sack...no mom around. So...we fed them...cared for them till they were a little bigger then we let them go. They lived under our bunkhouse for a year. NOW..a skunk is living under there. It's not very polite either...it keeps stinking the whole place up. We have a dog penned up at night near the bunkhouse...so I think she barks at the skunk and the skunk lets it rip. We had the same problem this exact time last year. It's mating season...and the female is looking for a place to have her babies. The bunkhouse stinks for about 2 months. Ughhh. The only way I can get her to leave for any length of time (when we have guest that are staying there) is to take a boom box and play really loud obnoxious music. She doesn't like that so she leaves.

Perhaps I missed it, but did you have him de-scented, and anything else???
Cool pet. DH had a pet opposum in Florida as a child.
