Last evening I left food for Leo the cat on the deck since he wanted to spend the night outside.  It wasn't ten minutes before I saw a strange black and white visitor at his bowl.

A juvenile member of the Skunk Posse which roams about our neighborhood
helps himself to a snack.

He checked out the water bowl too.

And then, he went back to the food bowl.

Finally, he was ready for his closeup, Mr. DeMille.

Not much later, the skunk was gone and a perky red fox was bounding around the yard.  He looked at me and I made mean noises and he decided to scram, bounding all the way.  Nobody knows what awaits us tonight!


  1. An elephant. That's what I'm waiting for. We've had everything but, including an emu--and that's no joke.
