Morning not-so-loveliness!

Looking out the bedroom window this morning, I saw these two little stinkers! (Click on the photo to enlarge for a better look.)

Sorry about the effects from taking the pics through a screen. I guess these are called "screen shots". Haha!

They were young ones, just having a great time running around and digging everywhere.

Or maybe they were very hungry and hurriedly looking for food.

Better not tell Courtney about this next photo!

Cuddles had noticed them, too, and she went on top of the sandbox shortly afterwards. If you look closely, you can see what she thought about the guests!

The skunks disappeared from sight, so I proceeded to get dressed and headed outside to feed my cats. Oops! Had to run back in to get the camera again!

I got braver and opened the door farther.

Hmmm.... not a good angle:

No, it wasn't aiming at me, thank goodness! It heard me and scurried off. Hopefully never to be seen again!

I wonder where their mama was. Maybe she decided they were old enough and sent them out to hunt for their own food. Or maybe she got hit by a car or something. I hope. Phew! At least these young'uns didn't leave any lingering odor.

I liked this post A LOT. Especially the look on Cuddles' face. :)

They look so soft and fluffy. Maybe you could keep them as pets. I bet your vet friend could take away the smelly part:-)

What a great idea, Kris! NOT!!! :)

I just enjoy thinking about how much fun you had in getting these shots.
In many ways skunks are kind of like bees, if you don't bother them, they usually won't bother you.
And they are cute when they are small.

I agree with Cuddles! Brave and great photos.

I have to admit, it was kinda fun getting those shots. You can bet, though, that if it had been a full-grown skunk out the back door, I wouldn't have been quite so brave! :)

Holy Smokes! Where was the gun slinging grandma? Oh Ya, she had a camera in her hand. You are one brave lady! How come there is never a man around when ya need em?

Mum doesn't need a man around to shoot things. She'll do it herself. :)
