You Found a What?!

In the sixth book of the Jolie Gentil cozy mystery series, she finds a skunk in her house. Technically, her cat Jazz and Aunt Madge's dog, Mister Rogers, lead it in. The skunk is Pebbles, who belonged to the house's elderly former owner, who recently died. (Not murdered, as far as we know.)

Since the skunk has had its odor glands removed and the local animal control officer really doesn't want to take it home, Pebbles has taken up residence.

I can think of lots of trouble for the cat and dogs to get into, but would love to know stories of pet skunks. Any takers?
