Skunk!

Generally I don't write in my diary very often, but something happened last night that was so exciting, I felt compelled to share it with with world of Catster. I live in a townhouse, and although there are nice trees all around it, we don't get too many wild critter sightings. But last night, I saw a magnificent skunk! My human mother had just come out onto our patio to call me in. She didn't see me, so she walked to the front steps. Then she turned her head and saw the biggest, fluffiest, fattest skunk! It was only 5 feet away and barreling right towards her like a black and white tank. Then she saw me. I, CNN the intelligent, knew enough to give this funny not-cat animal a wide berth. I was up on top of the patio fence, looking down on Pepe le Pue. I don't think he even saw me.

After much excited yelling on the part of Mommy, I was able to tear myself away and we both ran into the house. Oh boy, it sure was fun. Afterwards, Mom lectured me and Bob about the perils of skunks. Apparently, they can spray you with something that stings and smells really bad. Then you have to get a tomato juice bath.

I'm sure glad this was a friendly skunk. I'm going to keep my eyes peeled from now on, in case he ever comes back.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
