This is a skunk. He came to visit me and Beth wouldn't let me out. Mike did go out and take pictures. Looks like a cat. Nice fur! Beth said they have some funny smelling perfume that I wouldn't like very much. I looked them up on my trustworthy google and found these facts:
They weigh up to 10 pounds, have their babies in April - June, live in dens or hollow logs, usually only come out after sunset, really help in keeping the rodent population down, they won't spray unless feeling really threatened and they can spray up to 15 feet away! If they spray a human in the eyes it can cause temporary blindness but no permanent damage. So I think knowing all of this I will stay away from them and just look out the window and NOT bark, so they don't think I'm going to get them.
Today I have been enjoying the air conditioner blowing on me from under the bathroom sink. It gets really cold there and I like that! It's hot outside and I only like it out there for a short time. I have been practicing my routine for the show alone because if I do get to go I want it to be a surprise to Beth. So don't tell -- ok?
Better go and eat dinner. Later.
