The Planets Have Realigned, The Cosmos Are In Order, All Is Well...

Yep. I found my camera battery charger.

No, I don't want to talk about it.

Remember the baby skunk I mentioned seeing the other day? We've been seeing him every day since. And his five siblings. We wondered if mama had been hit by a car or eaten by something... Today when Aunt Marci went up to see the babies three of them ran out of the weeds and started to suck vigorously on her toes. That did it, Grandfather and Marci gathered them up and brought them down. Marci, Grandma and I worked at feeding them a little milk. One of the babies felt cold and would not swallow. Grandfather and Marci took them to Wildlife Images, a local wildlife rehabilitation center.

Somehow Grandfather convinced Brannon to pic one up long enough for a picture. I was rather surprised B went for it actually. That look on his face though...LOL!

Great-Grandma even got in on the skunk petting; and reminisced about a pet skunk they had.
Baby Jubilee was fascinated and had to be kept from grabbing :)

Ahh, much more comfortable a safe distance away ;-)

Awwww! They are so adorable. I'll admire them from a safe blog distance.

I don't blame you :)

The smell wasn't too bad. A bit eye-watering but not awful. They made me sneeze a lot though. Which is interesting since I'm not allergic to animal dander that I know of. Maybe it was the musk.

Oh, my gosh, that is too cute about the toe-sucking skunks! I don't think I'd ever seen even a photo of a baby skunk! I hope they all make it, thanks to your family's loving care. :)

And I'm glad you got your camera battery back, too. I've done that before and it's SO annoying!

I hope they make it too...the wildlife rehabilitation center wasn't too exited to get six MORE baby skunks---they already had 12!!
