Spring for Winter

The weather has been so unseasonably warm that all kinds of critters who would normally be sleeping away the winter have come out looking for a nosh.  A few nights ago a rabbit hopped down my neighbor’s drive as I left for home following a get together.  But most alarming here at Black Cat Cabin was the very large skunk that spent the day last Thursday snacking on someone’s leftover Wendy’s meal tossed thoughtlessly in a d
itch on the side of the road next to the farm.  I have never seen such a big skunk, about the size of a standard bed pillow,but it was there and it was living.  I saw it move. I was surprised to see it out in the daylight as I believe skunks are nocturnal (can anyone confirm that?).

It was there all day eating away but by evening it and the garbage were gone.  It’s fate unknown to me though there is a distinct odor of skunk spray at the top of the driveway now.
