How about a happy post. Meet Yogi and Boo-boo, the two newest members of the house of Linguini. They won’t get eaten, they won’t get hunted. They just bounce around in their happy little world and make us laugh our asses off.

Look like a fun couple of Ferrets , I had one when I lived in Boulder Co, back in 1979-80 They are a Blast! A truly fun pet. They are illegal to have here in California but if I had a chance to adopt one, I would! ——————————————-this is Scruffy, He’s 14-16 y/o? Good natured fun little guy! I’m going through a divorce, she said she was taking him when I saidIMG_0243.jpeg it was time to part company. No way! Was my response!😉

Mom’s dog, Goose. I was leery of her keeping a pitbull at her house but he’s grown on me (hasn’t eaten any cats or babies yet)

Skunks and badgers are closely related. Both from the weasel family. Both appreciate being picked up and hugged equally.
I wasn’t aware of that, but it makes sense, Ferrets are in the Weasel family as well….I’m not sure I’d be in any rush to pick up a Badger, though I’ve never been around a tame one. I knew a lady that had a Skunk that had been de-Glanded. It was a sweet pet, once it got to know you & you him. LOL
 
On the skunk topic..ever get sprayed?
Our youngest was at a sleepover. We arrived minutes after their 1/2 grown German Shepard took it point blank in the face. It was an oily jell. It made the dog sick. Vet’s advice..don’t bring him here! He‘ll recover. Rather unprofessional, but wise.
Hint: you may as well drink your tomato juice because it only makes the insane mess worse. Dish soap & baking soda kind of helped. Time is your friend. Still, 6 mo. later if there dog got wet, a dull musk emanated.
Like a tank slapper on your bike, the best way to deal with it, is, don’t ever have it happen.

I recently stepped out on the deck at night to toy with a new flashlight. Very quickly a mostly white skunk rand around the corner of the house to the edge of the deck, inches from my toes- tail raised. It ran back and forth for a minute while I spoke to it, then it just ran under the deck while I slowly retreated inside. I have had them visit in campground and go under the picnic table I was sitting at looking for scraps. I have been lucky to never have been sprayed, I hope to keep sailing under that star.

I got it once, I was holding a flashlight over a buddy's shoulder riding back from fishing on a dirt bike... This was back in about 2006, so the advent of affordable high output LEDs hadn't really trickled into the market that a kid could afford.

Anyway, in the dull beam I saw a little skunk trying desperately to get out of the way just as my friend threw his hands up off the handlebars... We rolled right over it and he lit us both up. Dish soap, baking soda and some vinegar took care of it.
