SK: Returning escapee

I have been living in apartment buildings, so the only escape is to the balcony (which is 5' x 35') and back.

Yours is the only case I have heard of a skunk escaping, and then managing to find their way back home. If it were possible, I would say breed her, the kits will be geniuses too.

Sebastian sleeps with me.  One morning he must have gone out with the dog
and I didn't notice it.  I didn't even miss him until he scratched at the
patio door to get in.  So he was out a couple of hours.

Stinker sleeps in bed with Debi and me, with the dogs in the bedroom with
the bedroom door shut. The dog door into the rest of the house is open at
night so the cats can go in and out. Not a simple thing. The other night
Debi went to the bathroom in the middle of the night, and didn't notice that
Stinker slipped out of the bedroom. She came back to bed and went back to
sleep. About 4:30am, there was a nonstop scratching at the bedroom door. I
thought it was Stinky trying to get out. I got up to stop her, and the
scratching was on the outside of the door. I opened it, and in comes a wet
and muddy Stinkbug. She had gone out of the dog door, dug under the fence,
and made her escape. I guess like when prisoners are turned loose, they want
to go back in, she drug her wet muddy self back in and burrowed under the
covers and made a mess of the sheets. She's escaped 7 or 8 times, and I
always have gotten her back. So, two questions. How many skunk owners sleep
with their little stink bombs? And second, how many have lost and regained
their skunks?

Our two sleep with us every night and we lost Basil once for five days. We
searched for him every day but couldn't find him. Finally he just came home
by himself. :)

VERY VERY FEW!!!!  It's rare for a skunk to be found, much less come  home. 
They have an entirely new "field of scents" to explore and they  simply 
follow their noses to wherever!!!  They become immediate prey to  owls, dog 
packs and cars!!

You are extremely lucky!!!

BTW....I'm very glad to see some activity on this skunk list!!  I  thought 
it had died!!!!
