Six young skunks were abandoned by their mother a week after birth.
They were luckily discovered by a local farmer, whose resident farm cat had just completed weaning her own kittens and was hoping to adopt them as her own.
She was hesitant at first, but her instincts as a mother kicked in and she began to care for them.
After two weeks, the six young “stinkers” are prospering, and their new mother is overjoyed.
She’s gotten pretty attached to them, and she often brings them about with her to show them to others!
Once they’re mature enough and capable of fending for themselves, this cute little family of skunks will be released.
