One week after being born, six baby skunks were abandoned by their mother.
Luckily, we had just weaned five kittens off our resident farm cat a day before and hoped that, perhaps, she might take them on as her own.
She was reluctant at first, but she let them nurse. A positive sign.
Two weeks have gone by and the six little "stinkers" are thriving and their new mom couln't be happier.
She has become quite devoted to them and even carries them around to show them off to visitors!
