They are just adorable! They were the little guys that were left orphaned in the spring when their mom was hit on the road... looks like they're making out just fine and still stop in for Holiday dinners!!!

Ummmm, that's a skunk in their house, not a kitty right? Are they aware that skunks stink when they spray

So did they raise them?

no no, just sort of looked out for them, left food out back for them, they kind of hang around the stray posse and the racoons that frequent the yard.... they live out in the country so instead of trying to keep all nature out they just share their food, and welcome them all in! The little guys smelled a little but never once even threatened to spray! (they prob come in late at night as the in-laws leave the sliding door open until late for their kitties to come back in)

I wish the skunks around my neighborhood were well behaved as your in-laws.

They are cute little creatures anyway.

We had a mom skunk make her nest under our shed about 5 years ago. It was a battle between her and my husband, but she won out and stayed until her brood were old enough to leave.

I saw them the night they all left and those little baby skunks were the most adorable looking little critters. Too bad mom skunk had to spray around our house almost every night. Both of our neighbours had dogs at the time, we do not. I'm sure those dogs went through lots of baths !!

We just have bunnies in our back yard now and the cats love to watch them out the windows. We leave oats out for them in the winter and they love hanging out under the shrub protectors we put on our plants.

The skunks are too adorable. Your in laws seem like very nice people. Too bad for me that in our family the in-laws are the stinkers, not the skunks.
