Several years ago we had a rather delicate situation. It was three o'clock in the morning and everyone was sound asleep!! That is what we are suppose to be doing at that time anyway!! All, of a sudden, we hear a major commotion outside our bedroom window. It's sounds like a major cat fight!! We soon knew what was going on when the most horrid skunk smell you can ever imagine drifted into our bedroom. Apparently, a cat got into a fight with a skunk. It gets worse. The skunk found it's way under our house. (We live on a raised foundation). The smell just permeated the whole house! We could NOT sleep. We could NOT go outside and check things out because it smelled so bad. That was a very long night!! In the morning, it seemed like everything smelled bad. It was horrible. We think the skunk died under our house. If you have a raised foundation, here is a word for the wise. Make sure it's very secure so that no stinky critters can get under your house in the middle of the night!!
