Skunks CAN and DO eat kittens. They are easy prey. Believe it or not. I have discussed this with skunk experts who actually raise skunks as pets, etc.
I am unable right now to build a shelter. There is no way I could afford it, though I would absolutely LOVE to. A warm shelter in my yard would be perfect. I wish i could do it. They go under my neighbors mobile home, and mine, and they also have several boxes under my room, which is a travel trailer.
Unfortunately, I could not get to the other three babies Mama had. She kept moving them around, and about the time they would have been 4 weeks, there was no sign of them anymore
Two of them were saved and went home, at two weeks, with a loving, caring woman who offered to nurse them.
I have been offered some help and I am still waiting to hear back from some of the people. Hopefully TNR will start asap. Mama is already pretty big preg again, and Lily is HUGE pregnant.
This is extremely hard on me emotionally. I still feel very overwhelmed, etc. I am poor. If I had the funding, transportation, etc, etc, this would already be done. I am still working on it, though, and I hope to hear back from the people who offered their help very soon.
Thank you SO much to everyone here who has offered to help. Every bit of help is VERY much appreciated.
