I forgot to add that the hair grew back in.  Both had been spayed.
Those girls are still around and doing fine.  None lost any hair so far
this winter.

	I have had a couple females over the past years that were
completely bald about this time of year.

		I'm new to the list and have a question for everyone.
We have a 1 1/2 Year old black and white skunk named pandora.  She's
been a great pet and she makes us laugh everyday.  However we recently
have had some trouble.  For a while she was tired and wouldn't keep her
food down very well.  She is also very finickey and didn't want anything
but dog food.  We ignored her protest and switched her diet by taking
dog food out completely and went to skunkie delight, this seemed to hel
a lot.  But the newest problem is that she's loosing the hair on the end
of her tail. Has this happened to anyone else?  And what could it be.
She is now otherwise happy, looks good (except the tail), no weight
problem and good energy.  Any clues?
		Thanks for the help,
