Odor to a Skunk

Skunkalette, no more than a budding flower
Sweet and dewey, too sleepy to bloom
Blissfully unaware of its ultimate power
Sparing us from skunkalette perfume
Allowing for a cuddle and a sniff.
Tie-tie skunkalettes need forty-winks
And the world’s noses breathe happy
No worries about getting a whiff
Of skunkalette’s stinky-stinks
When a skunkalette takes a little nappy.

Susan R. found this on PUTube and says, “Wait for :55 for ultimate leg wiggling action. I love how he immediately falls asleep at the end!”



  1. So exquisite, this little creature!

  2. Tucked up like Bambi’s Flower!

  8. Jenny Islander says:

    I get the feeling this is how this skunklette goes aseepin every time. Get his tummy nice and full, cuddle him, “groom” him, then fold up his tail around his nose and out he goes.

    It must be nice, being a giant surrogate skunk mom.

  9. I have petted bebeh skonks! They were just as adorable as this little dude – paws like tiny bear paws.

  15. Don’t forget baby elephants and sloths!!

  16. Lovin’ his little white chapeau….

  20. OMGs, the twitching foot…. and is that a kind of purring I hear? Then he curlz up with his tail over his nose and falls afleep — another day destroyed by teh qte.

  22. 38 weeks preggo and stressed to the max…I needs to pet me a baby skunk STAT! A session of skunk snuggling could very well end world strife!

  23. kittykat416 says:

    And a Nigerian dwarf goat!

  24. Let the qte just sweet over you and calm your frayed nerves. Pretty soon you’ll have your own adorabuhl little smell-making critter to care for. 🙂

  25. I meant “sweep” over you. But I guess “sweet” would be even better. 🙂

  26. Furbabies says:

  27. I SO wanna snorgle a bebeh skunkalette now!

  28. Stinkin’ cute…literally.
