This morning about 5:30, I was online and heard a scuffle on my back porch. We have a outside kitty (came w/ the house can't beat her hard enough to get her to live inside, nice cat, Angel)(Yes, she's spayed and no, she doesn't hunt,long story) We do have a problem w/ 'dumped' and hence multi-generational feral cats. Thinkin' that it was just that beating up on Angel, I turned on my porch light to scare the stray off, jerked open my door...........To my horror....I found myself about 4' from a skunk who promptly jumped off the porch and shashayed under my house.......Yes, there is an opening, yes I spoke w/my DH multible times......needless to say, it will now be taken care of,thought it had, anyway.........What is an effective way to move this (lookin' very well fed) skunk along? I've heard about mothballs, do they work and do I need to buy out the 2 nearest hardware stores? What suprised me is the lack of smell...Maybe it's young, no mistake that it is a skunk, just no noticable small.........

We played really loud rock music in the garage once when we had a skunk in there. Learned our lesson about closing the door too ;-) The dog and garage got sprayed.

elly nj- thanks for the link............I was lookin' @ the tail end, plenty close enough to tell, but it didn't register (silly me, lol) So I have ever intention of evicting before birthin' time (now if I can just get it to comply.........Hmmm.......)

pkponder- Right, no loud music in garage.......Got it ;o)
