Skunk!

Tonight walking hand-in-hand with my girlfriend and absorbed in a story when very suddenly noticed a skunk close right in front of us (maybe two squares of sidewalk). Carefully backed away (she is very careful about not alarming urban wildlife) but I'm not sure the skunk had even noticed us, and I got to watch it nosing around near some bushes. Was very exciting for me!

Dream with skunks

I dreamt that the house I was in was all but surrounded by skunks. One or two would wander in everytime I opened the sliding door.

I expected the cat, at least, to have a bad encounter.

Two skunks!

Walking hand-in-hand last night, we saw two skunks! They paid no attention to us and didn't seem to be to each other, just that they were both on the same patch of lawn going after worms or bugs or whatever.

Later, when told of this, Graham said sightings of skunks are becoming routine. I disagree strongly, because it is exciting and they are cute every time. Not routine for me even if more frequent!

Baby Skunk!

Apparently baby skunks are rampant in the west end, but I am excited every time I get to see one. Tonight's was moving about under a dumpster, and then came out into the light, all cute and stripey!

Wonderful thing to be cuddled in a park and obediently stay very still so as to get to watch a skunk meandering along the edge of a flowerbed.

Saw a skunk last night, another of those catching a glimpse of motion and realising so not a cat: all low to the ground and with the white stripe showing in the dark. It disappeared under someone's fence, so I wonder if it lives in that yard.

Almost saw a skunk again tonight. (Would have been a different skunk, as different area of town.) But a certain rabbit pulled me onwards before I got a chance to peer into the bushes.

This piece is in actual real media, specifically pencil crayons and black fineliner. It's of a female anthropomorphic Skunk. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] tursi for providing the idea.

This is one of the pieces I will have in the art show at All Fur Fun later this month.

As a chaser to heaving boxes and piles of stuff, Graham and I had dinner at Kintaro tonight.

We'd parked a few blocks away on Barclay, and had just got back into the car when Graham drew my attention to the Skunk making its way across the road some distance in front of us. I could just see the dark shape of it, the white stripe, and its very distinctive way of moving, somewhere between hopping and waddling, which assured me it wasn't just a cat.
