Direct route to obesite, the #1 killer of pet skunks.  

If your vet insists, a teaspoon of ferret food might be added to the skunk's 
diet, but 80-90% of the diet should be vegetables with the remaining 
percentage being  high fibers, COOKED chicken, turkey, lamb or fish and a very small 
amount of fruit.  Catfood should be avoided at all costs.
