Every morning when Christopher Choate get home at 3am from work, his pet skunk Fiora is there to greet him. The little ball of energy plays an adorable game with a plastic bag and then it’s time for hide-and-seek!
Choate says domesticated skunks are like having a cat/dog hybrid when it comes to responsibility, except that they have to eat more natural foods and sometimes can sleep up to 20 hours in the winter. They’re also surprisingly, “Low shedding, no allergenic, litter box trainable, absolutely loving animal and they are the best lap pets known to man.” He also had her scent glands removed when she was a kit, so no skunky odor.
They’re also super, super cute!
