Hi Jill, I am so sorry for your loss, but from the sounds of it, you gave Snookie a great life! I am a new skunk owner, Oreo. In fact he has his first vet appt today, 9 wks old. I hope that my love for him grows as deep as your love for your little one. I'm glad you sought out this group. I hav only had Oreo for 2 wks now and have received so much help and understanding already.  Best to you, Stephanie

Hi everyone.
I sought out your group for the first time last night. I am in Ohio..having a pet skunk was a childhood dream. When I finally found my little was wonderful!
My much loved little boy Snookie passed after almost 7 years of bringing me such affection and joy..and a light has just gone out of my life.  I can't put the grief into better words at the moment, although it hasn't even been 24 hours.
I am 51..and find myself alternately laughing at the memories and sobbing the next moment.
I went online to find somewhere where explanation would not be necessary and people would just understand. I could surround myself with people and I'd still see that silly little face. I had several weeks to prepare during his decline..he knew he was loved..and his last moments were spent raising his little head and nose to those who loved him to be stroked and talked to before the eyes closed. It could not have been more peaceful and yet..right just hurts. Thank you so much for listening!
