||One year, one month old|
is an independent fellow. Though he loves to be brushed, cuddled and
watch tv with me, he also likes to make a nuisance of himself. Like any
stubborn young boy if he isn't getting what he wants he will make himself
a distraction until he gets it. This could be it running circles around my
feet while I clean or pulling items off of shelves and hiding them in his
house. Anything to get attention, good or bad! He goes for walks outside
on his leash, and enjoys sniffing every inch of ground as he goes!
His favorite activities include playing hide and seek and chasing the cats
around the room. Of course the cats keep coming back for more, enjoying
the game themselves. I had worked with several skunks during my
internships and hadn't imagined I could have one myself until a friend
brought their new baby skunk home. I immediately started doing my research
and preparing for such an unusual pet and my Riley well well worth the
time and wait. Friendly, unusual and playful as can be, he is both a
challenge and a joy to have in my family.
