Our cuddly orange cat decided he wanted to explore the outdoors (again) and made a run for it a couple days ago (both cats are indoors.) He's had outdoor experience before, being a stray that we adopted a few years back.

Still, we'd like him to come back inside, and have had several sightings of him on the property but he still wants to stay out.

Never-the-less, I set up a Have-A-Heart trap with some cat food in it. Wife checked it this morning and said, well, there's something in the trap, with very light orange fur, but also a lot of black.

SKUNK!

So I went to take a look, and of course it sprayed. Missed me, as I was to the side, but now the whole neighborhood smells of skunk, and being right by the house, it even smells of skunk inside!

Skunk was freed -- I put a towel over the trap, of course the skunk sprayed more, but at least into the towel. Opened the door, and the guy (gal?) was too freaked out to run away. So I had to pick up the trap and shake it out. Is there a song for that? But skunk is free, looked a bit stunned just sitting there outside the trap for a few seconds, then took off. Well, I didn't see it take off -- we both took off in opposite directions. Laugh | :laugh:

Still, no cat. Frown | :(
