Another dead skunk on the highway, and I'm wondering if it is "mine", ie, the third one that was born in the pile of driveway-building rubble at the bottom of the hill. Two of the three and the mother are known dead, but that third one was alive and well just before Boyoboy was delivered, as he/she scared the mother when she saw him/her walking near my trailer.

She was afraid he'd spray, but none of them ever felt threatened enough to do that. They were far braver than the outside cats.

A few days back, I ran into a dead skunk's remains, about a 1/2-3/4 mile from my house. Is that too far to hope that it could be the third one?
