Last night we had a visitor on our porch. I had placed the trash out just by the door..not in the trash can and forgot about it. Well, my "visitor" took advantage of this situation and found some food. Something white and fluffy caught my eye by the door, when I went to check I realized it was an animal. This unknown animal had opened up the trash bag and had climbed inside. I wasn't sure what it was because it was mostly white and it's tail was so fluffy. I guessed it was a skunk and in fact it was! He was literally right outside our screen door. I thought he was adorable. I wouldn't mind having a skunk as a pet...minus the stinky gland.
