Here Kitty, Kitty !


No Miggs that’s not a kitty kitty that’s ah ah ah  skunk !!!! oh no Miggs what happened  ?!

Just before we turned in for the night  last night we let Miggs out to do her business and Papa heard her in hot pursuit of something , him thinking it was a stray cat as it usually is .. well  not this time !  he realized what it was after it had sprayed .. oh man it’s a skunk he yelled , the windows were open and it was right by the kitchen sliding door  that was also open, he thinks it was under his van that he parks under the car port and boy did it waft everywhere so the windows got closed quick but not quick enough still a bit of a smell through out the house ..  so , Papa still  calling Miggs to get her away which didn’t work she was to interested in this black and white cutie lol she got skunked . First time ever for her to, well it got her good as it was a humid night she was panting as she was pursuing this skunk and it got her right in the mouth and the underside of her neck  so she came running in finally shaking her head sneezing  and spluttering  slobber all over the place ,  poor dog  well we didn’t have anything to properly get the stink out so we did what we could  washed Miggs right away and especially her eyes to rinse them with luke warm water in case of any spray that may have gotten in them . I had lots of towels to wash late at night to get the stink out , thank fully they are all good and stinky free now .

My mother in law came over this morning with this stuff that is amazing . She uses it for her dog that has been skunked a few times lol . She is getting more for us today as she is going up to town lol !AUGUST 2014 (2 of 2)-2

I washed the smelly area of Miggs and her electric collar that got skunked badly and so far Miggs has no powerful odor just a hint on and around her mouth which I don't want to put anything on or around her mouth just in case   , waiting to see if the electric collar has any smell to it as it has to air dry after wiping it down with a saturated cloth of the stuff , I am sure the electric collar will still work as Miggs rolls in wet grass with it on  so here's hoping  for both lol !

                                        Living in the country , there really isn’t a dull moment is there ?

I suspect Harley must have laughed.

Poor Miggs! Hopefully she learned to leave those critters alone!

Oh, poor Miggs! I'm glad she's nice and clean now. But I bet the whole experience was quite surprising --- and traumatizing --- for her! Best to just look at skunks from a distance!
