A Bad Saturday Night Date

See my buddy, Kasia?

See her yawning? Why, you wonder?

Well, she spent part of her Saturday night with a skunk.

That’s right. It means old Momma got her magic potion out. Being a seasoned veteran, I use the well-Googled recipe of Dawn, which gets the skunk oil off, hydrogen peroxide and baking soda. She’s washed with warm water and a wash cloth, and actually seems to enjoy it. I talk quietly as I wash her, calling her my little Stinkpot, and telling her I love her 😍 either way, and she’ll feel better when she’s cleaner.

Here she is, resting after her big morning wash. Here’s hoping skunks stay away for a while.
