We had a friend over the other day, and she was telling us all about once having a skunk as a pet. Duh, of course you get them from breeders or a pet store, and they are de-scented. She said it was very smart, litterbox trained (yuk, I'm not a cat fan, so this whole concept disgusts me, but I suppose better than crapping behind the sofa). Also it was a male who bonded to her and was extremely possessive. Said the thing decided it liked one of the kitchen cabinets, and that was where they made it's bed. It would open up the cabinet and go inside by itself. When they got home, it would peek out and come greet her when called. Apparently it had the run of the house. Nocturnal, so occasionally annoying. I just love the whole idea of having a pet skunk. Carrying that thing around freaking people out, etc. Whatcha think? Any experiences?
