My Mom's Baby Skunk






My Mom and Dad found a dead mother skunk and a hurt baby skunk in their yard and since my family has a place in our hearts for animals of any kind they decided to nurse the baby skunk back to health. My Mom just called him baby skunk but my younger sister Jenne` called him Frank. I think he is really adorable but I have to admit I would be a little scared snuggling up with him like my Mom did. About a week ago my Dad called and told me that the baby skunk passed away. He thinks it was because of lack of the right nutrition even though my Mom and Dad researched what to feed him. He was sick when they got him. My Mom said she really enjoyed taking care of him and having him fall asleep in her hands with a warm towel.

That has got to be the CUTEST thing I've seen in ages. Reminds me of Flower from Bambi.

Aww! I nursed a baby bunny for a while. We had an okay nutrition (KMR kitten milk replacer formula) but his stomach filled with air from the bottle. He bloated. How sad! I should have just taken him in to begin with. I was working at a vet at the time. Oh well. Little creatures are so sweet.
