Last night my regular spot where l go to after work (Lowes) to use the internet and let the cats out was occupied by a tow truck driver, so l headed on over to my new daytime spots by Dave & Busters.
I like the Dave & Buster’s spot because it is around the back of their building, it is shaded by trees, and l can use all the help l can get this summer to keep the van cool for me and the cats, there is also free internet from the Marriott next door, the signal is weaker then Lowes, but what do you want for free?
I got there around midnight, and at two am, l called the cats in to move to the Wal-Mart parking lot. Just after l got Tommy and Charlie in l noticed about 30 feet from the van a little black critter with a bushy. I thought it was a bit strange that a squirrel would be out at that time. As it started to move towards the van, with all three of us staring at it, l realized it was a baby skunk and it was moving closer.
I don’t think l have ever jumped into the driver’s seat so quick. The skunk was only seven feet away as l started the van, its tail went up as l startled it when l started the engine…..We got away safely, thank goodness.
I’m so glad that l called the cats in when l did. I couldn’t imagine having to spend the night with two cats that were sprayed by a skunk in a living space smaller then most people’s bathrooms.
