Please tell me it’s not under there!

January 17, 2013

skunkSo I woke up to the unmistakable stench of very close skunk spray. I flew out of bed to see where the dog was. She was asleep in the house. I then went to close her dog door and realized the skunk smell was not in the front part of the house. So I went back to my bedroom where it clearly reeked of skunk.  I admit, I  ignored it figuring the dog was inside and I can’t do much about the smell so I am going to sleep for 20 more minutes.


I got the girls ready for school, and we all waked to school.  When I walked back into the house, it smells like skunk.  The back of the house where the bedrooms are clearly smells much stronger of skunk.  So I went in the backyard. Over near the crawl space the skunk smell is very strong.  Before you ask, no I never resealed it when I saw that it was open a week or so ago. I was afraid something was under there and I didn’t want it to die under my house. (Trust me after having been at my parents’ house about a year ago when they accidently trapped an opossum under their house. I can go the rest of my life with seeing or smelling a rotting rodent again. )


So who’s got a theory about why the smell is so strong in the back?  I am begging, someone please reassure me that there is not a skunk in distress under my house.

    Sounds like an investigation for you local crazy animal person to me! I’m pretty sure she’d do it for a margarita. You KNOW who you are!
