You've Got a What?!?

Yesterday my mom and I went to PetsMart to return something. While we were waiting in line we watched most of the staff gathered around a guy and his son. We didn't think much of it until we looked down and saw ... a skunk!

I don't know if I'd want a skunk for a pet, but he was very beautiful and very sweet. He was even playing with a doggie chew toy.

I've never had anything more interesting than a hamster. Have you ever had en exotic pet?


OH. MY. GODS. and GODDESS BOOT CAMP (out now!)
FORGIVE MY FINS (coming June 1st!)

We had a horny toad/horned frog once, but had to release it back into the wild.

I keep telling my sister she needs to get a skunk.

He's so cute (though I don't know how Kitty Ash would feel about sharing his 'rents with a skunk)!

I have barely had any regular pets much less exotic ones. Growing up, my parents forbade pets so I only had a goldfish named Enrique!

I've heard skunks make great pets--friendlier than cats and less demanding than dogs...

I've had water frogs and rats as my "odd" pets, but now I've just got a fat cat who's the love of my life. :)

I've always wanted a skunk. I hear they make great pets. And while I haven't had a skunk yet, I have had a vast assortment of exotic pets, including hedgehogs (my mom's), salamanders (my sons'), a crab(my sons'), and a boa constrictor (my boyfriend/hubby's).

Wow! That's amazing! I once raised a baby pig that it's mother rejected with a bottle. Her name was Fonziella. Sadly...she was so small and runty that she didn't survive, but I did my best!

Wow! I was at PetSmart yesterday, too, but all I saw was a well-behaved dog on a leash. And how great that you got a picture!

Heather Davis said...

Um... wow - taking your skunk to the pet store on a leash is pretty out there.

I'll stick to kittys and dogs!
