Skunk Update

As mentioned earlier this week, we had a problem with skunks. This problem now is gone. I must say, it was an expensive problem to fix, but I feel better knowing I did the responsible thing.

Cage with baby skunk 2 - as close as I would get!
On Thursday morning the second baby was caught. The poor thing looked so scared. Even though the pest control guy assured they didn't spray I kept my distance. When I stepped closer he/she would get very stressed out. So I stayed back and talked to him/her and told him/her how cute he/she was and how I wanted one as a pet . . . . (I think saying I want a pet skunk has made my desire for a second dog seem much more realistic). 

Because the skunk was caught behind a plant, I was able to get Hailey in the car without her seeing it. I think this was good for both the skunk and her. I am happy to report that even though we have been living with skunks forever, none of our dogs have ever been sprayed. Let's see if that changes at the new house.

For now, we are glad the skunks and the live traps are gone. Having them around was not helping with house selling!


  1. Hailey is lucky she didn't see the baby skunk. I would have been there adding to the mayhem or just causing it. Glad you are a skunk free zone and we are wishing you a buyer ASAP. Have a happy Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Thanks, we keep having showings so are hopeful!
