  1. One of the La Pews needs to work on his privacy tail. :s

  2. Skunks stinky scent keeps predators at bay–because otherwise they would forever be getting picked up and snorggled for their adorableness!

  3. All such cute, cute little stinkers 😛

  4. sabrina rose says:

    These little guys are darling! Do they really make good pets, personality-wise, once they are de-stinkified?

  5. sabrina rose says:

    A tad nonchalant, yes?

  6. Made me clutch my pearls, that did…

  7. Those are some impressive pointy-bits for such little cuties!

  8. Peanutcat says:

    Wait what?! Did I just see some skunk pron?

  9. emmberrann says:

    We are told so, but I imagine you have to make allowances for individuality deviating from the norm. (and stop calling me Norm! I’m Gerald, he’s Norm!)

  10. Soooo cute! Coast and Canyons do great work. I’m local to them.

  11. I love how unedited anipals are. No shame, no worry.

  12. I’ve told this here before…A friend, many years ago, gave a forever-home to a skunk that couldn’t be re-introduced. My friend called her Chanel.

    Chanel had a low kitchen cabinet she “denned” in and would mostly come out in the evening, waddle to her cat food for dinner, then sit on my friend’s lap for scratches. She was not stinky without her gland but she did have a her own personal fragrance which wasn’t really bad at all. Kind of catty.

    Chanel was litter trained and behaved a lot like a cat, liking some people, indifferent to others, and a scaredy-skunk with strangers. She had her toys scattered about the living room floor. It took time for her to warm up socially but she would cuddle with the humans she trusted and could be playful.

    It goes without saying that a non-domesticated animal should never be given a human home unless there is no other choice. But my friend was VERY lucky that Chanel was a wee thing when she came into my friends life. She had been abandoned for some reason and my friend got to learn about skunks and how to be a good skunk mommy.

  13. My friend, by the way, fell into skunk parenthood by knowing well a wildlife rehabilitation specialist. It should be noted that some wild animals are not legally permitted in human homes without a Rehaber’s license. Each U.S. State is different. I’m not sure about similar laws in the UK, Europe, and beyond.

  14. The one of them eating from those dishes made my insides squirm around in joy.

  15. The skunk on the left in the second picture: “So I go like [nrgh] this! And then I let loose!”

  16. They have the most adorable little noses!

  17. Janet in Cambridge says:

    That face, that face!

  18. Love the Don King hairdo in the second to last pic 🙂

  21. bob drummond says:

    I’m still waiting to hear from PEPE LA’PEW !!! 😉

  22. …and no underpants!!!

  23. fleurdamour says:

    Imagine the money shot.

  24. I now picture all skunks speaking with a Frawnche ahccent.

  25. How do people keep skunks? Considering their . . . ahem . . . smelly responses?

  26. Terry Mc (mctwin's twin) says:

    Wesley and Buttercup!!! I ❤ it!!!!
