Couple Fosters 15 Skunks In Their Home
Some people have too many cats or dogs. Because of this they become known as “the crazy cat lady” or “the dude with a yard full of dogs.” One Florida couple is making news for a different reason – they have 15 skunks in their home!
It started about 5 years ago when Don and Brenda Hoch got their first skunk. Naturally it was de-scented, and they purchased the animal from a pet store. Apparently the pet brought enough joy that they’ve since become a foster house for Florida Skunk Rescue and now they have a slew of skunks running around the house!
Many of the animals were originally kept in homes but were neglected, which is where the Hoch’s step in. Though I applaud them for doing so, I still can’t help but wonder about having skunks in the house. Don’t they smell a little anyway, even if they’ve been de-scented? And I can just imagine what the cats in my house would think. It would be a bad idea all around.
Nevertheless, animal rescue is a great need and I’m applauding the Hoch’s for braving these skunks.
Do they crawl into bed with them at night?
