adios skunkrrel

July 30, 2009

Last night Skunkrrel – that rarest of crosses between a squirrel and a skunk – was found dead, an apparent victim of a traffic accident.

Mostly she was known for her attitude toward ‘normal’ squirrels unless you were that special someone at that special time of year – then she would sit in a cherry tree and bat her eyelids at you. We’ll miss her emptying the bird feeder, wobbling around in the glow of pregnancy, hopping along the fence, wagging her white stubby tail and just acting all crazy.

Thanks for stopping by Skunkrrel – our garden won’t be the same without your scampering and general silliness.
