And it scared me to death. I'm not sure which one of us, me or the skunk, was more surprised. I didn't get sprayed so I am thinking I was more scared.

I had just gotten home from work and was walking up to my front door when I heard something in the neighbors yard. I saw a tail and thought it was a stray cat. When I got closer, I realized it wasn't a cat. I took off running as fast as I could.

LOL...well....thankfully you didn't scare him too badly...or it could have been a disaster....

I haven't actually seen too much wildlife yet...except for the birds.  There seemed to be "hundreds" this morning when I left my house.
