i have stuffed milk cartons!!!!!!!! low fat and chocolate :D
they're so wee and adorable... i wish i could love them and hug them and squeeze them forever!
i'm back in atlanta!
ohohohohohohohoh!!!! i got a call while i was out to adopt a skunk in central florida! i might finally get a skunk! i just need to find a phone that i can call long distance on so i can get the details.
Oh how adorable!!!! Did you make those, buy them, or recieve them from someone who made them? One time I had a speach class where we had an instructional speach and one girl did one on how to make these cute tooth fairy pillow things for little kids to put there teeth in, and those remind me of them, they were amazingly simple also..
i actually got the call today, the girl that's adopting him out lives in rome, so i won't have to drive like 4 hours!
he's a 2ish year old chocolate :) i get to meet him next weekend to make up my mind. he's apparently unfixed and a little nippy, which i'm told will go away after i get him fixed.
i'm so exicted!!!!!
the girl i'll be adopting him from doesn't know anything about skunks. she's been feeding the poor guy hot dogs and mcdonalds the entire time she's had him. of course, right now he's overweight because of his horrible diet.
i plan on taking him to a vet as soon as i get him to be fixed and have bloodwork done and everything to see if there's any lasting damage from him eating nothing but lard for the past two years. i figure you of all people would know of a vet i could take him to?
McDonald's and hot dogs?? Oh. My. God. The poor lil guy! I wouldn't be surprised if his whites were orange as well as him being a fuzzy basketball on that diet. It's gonna be an uphill battle getting that weight off and getting him on a proper dietary regime. I'm so glad he's going to you. Makes me so frustrated when I hear of folks with skunks who don't know how to take care of them. Skunks are such sensitive beasties.
I highly recommend taking your new skunkie to Avalon Animal Hospital in Lawrenceville. They're excellent with skunks and they see a lot of them, so they know their way around skunk anatomy. Hobkin sees Dr. Donald DeLong.

When you go for your appointment, ask for Debbie Rogers to assist if she's in. She's Hobkin's godmother, Avalon's groomer/vet tech assistant, and she's got a real way with skunks. A proper skunk-whisperer.
If you need anything, have questions, concerns, or just want to squee about your new chocolate baby to a fellow skunk parent, do feel free to give me a call or drop me an email. (If you'd like my phone number, drop me an email.)
Also, puskunk and alijt are also skunk owners on LJ. Excellent skunk people, the both of them.
A Canadian friend of mine has started branching out his skate/street fashion work to making little plush toys based on his artwork. (http://www.klayco.com/ <- *plug* *plug*)
Unfortunately he's decided to call his characters "The Friggers". I had to explain to him that "Frigging" is an old English slang term, still in use, meaning "furious female masturbation".
