Sleeping With Pets – Or reasons not to sleep with your pet skunk

Comments Off on Sleeping With Pets – Or reasons not to sleep with your pet skunk

Sleeping with pets is a challenge of its own. Sleeping with pet skunks is a different granimal. Reasons why not to do so....... 8. The pet skunk could decide the bed is theirs and their wild instinct takes over, so needing to leave their skunk scent for protection for all of you, could sheete in the bed during the day, even on your pillow, thus loosing their privilege to a stairway up to the mattress. Then the pet skunk could decide to begin sheete-ing beneath the bed out of spite. Think, people. We are talking about pet skunks and oh, yes, they would. ..... 18. Your skunk might crawl underneath your nightgown to snuggle parts of you that you would rather it did not snuggle. 19. Your skunk could decide to groom those parts -- saying try because that activity wouldn't last long. And many more reasons sleeping with pets like skunks is not a good idea either.

"No," dog said to me with a tornado going by window. "No. The SKUNK is in that closet." I am pulling his scruff but he is a Newfie, the scruff stretches two feet and he is 143 pounds, so I lose. "Comeon, let's go in just for a minute. It's fun. She's nice, she's cuuuuteee." "No. I'll stay out here with the derecho-tornado. The skunk will eat me." Now... he is confused because Lacey wouldn't eat him but her late sister Blossom would have killed him.

Some people just can’t stand to eat off the same plates as a skunk. Frankly, I don’t see the problem. It’s not like the plate remains unwashed. Unless the skunkie fools you into thinking it is washed. They will lick a plate for ten minutes and it will shine when it has not been into […]

A Baby Skunk Brother to Call My Own? Not!!!

Sequoia continued to scream and run every time he saw his baby brother. Jeronimo decided to corner his older brother where he couldn't escape then sidle over to him backwards. Ever so slowly and carefully the baby would sit on Sequoia. Sequoia screamed and wiggled to freedom, charging to the other side of the house Jeronimo patiently followed, nose sniffing like a bloodhound, only to sit on him again. Sometimes Jeronimo hauled himself into bed with me and find his older brother. There was only a brief time when he was allowed to do this and for excellent reason. My heart!

Pet skunks, well. . . they are not supposed to run into walls, but Blossom does because of Lacey. Lacey decides to leave the room at the same time and crowds Blossom out from going through the door. Blossom has no where to go but into the corner -- smack into the wall.

The pet skunk that almost killed me

When Sage went down the rabbit hole. . . I dove onto the floor, grabbing him by the scruff and pulling. I couldn’t let go or he would die. I pulled and stretched and pulled. It was like giving birth. Until out of a tiny hole popped a twelveteen-pound skunk. This and more Sage the pet skunk stories in memorial. . .
