skunks do a lot of digging in the wild, hence the claws.. they are not sharp like a cats, but more solid like a dogs.. they will leave a mark, but not a line of blood if that makes sense :) she does get them trimmed up though :)

as long as it all goes ahead again, then she will be at Exeter again i am sure.. maybe even with a boyfriend if i am lucky.. last i heard.. keep the 3rd weekend in august free (unconfirmed tho..)

in theory she should breed this spring, we shall see.. female skunks are induced ovulators and either need to be breed or spayed.. leaving them in heat can cause their death :( i am told i will know once she comes into season, as their personality changes during it! (typical woman then :) )

lol, there are a few in the uk, quite a few in the EU and lots in the USA :)

she has been de-scented..

its a far smaller operation than cutting a dogs danglies off, or removing a cats womb.. takes a few moments and causes no knock on effects that we know of.. and when you see just how much they take to domestic life, its well worth it..

i need a tame phd student to investigate more tho.. i would like to know what makes the scent, and what happens when you take the gland away..

if we could gather enough evidence, then it would be worth taking to the RCVS (who currently frown on "invasive" treatments to adapt an animal to human life - of course. ripping out a womb, or lopping of nads.. is for the animals good, so its ok to be invasive there *mutters rude words* its not for the dogs benefit you chop its balls off, its for the humans who live in the same world as it... but anyway..)
