Livin' It Up with Sammy

Pee Yew!

Tully and I were chilling in the backyard on Saturday while Mom watered some potted plants. It was a beautiful day; the skies were blue, and the weather warm.

Mom spotted a little skunk in our backyard digging in back of the shed. She didn’t spray him directly with the hose, but tried to spray near him so she could steer him towards the gate and out towards the front yard. Well, it worked out as planned but she didn’t realize that he would suddenly make a run directly towards me and Tully who were sitting on the lawn. He came within inches of us but then ran quickly to the gate and out towards the front yard. All of a sudden Mom smelled that telltale sign of a skunk, and unfortunately he skunked me on his way out!

Pee yew! Mom has been using waterless shampoo on me every day to get rid of the smell. She went to the Pet Store and found some special shampoo she could have used for de-skunking, but the directions said it had to be left on for at least 5 minutes and then a regular shampoo applied, so she knew that wouldn’t work. I hate baths and get really upset if my fur is soaked with water, so she tried the waterless shampoo instead. It does seem to be working and the smell is almost gone.

Beware of skunks – they stink!

Love, Sammy

Oh no! Was this skunk out during the daytime? That is unusual, for skunks. Be careful! Hope you smell better soon.

Thank you furiends for your sympathy for my stinky situation. Mom feels furry bad that she tried to shoo the skunk out of the yard with the hose, and in hindsight would never do that again with us kitties in the yard. Thankfully he didn't spray me too bad and the smell is nearly gone.
