Corralitas Drive: Big Fat Skunk

Photo: Diane Edwardson, October 3, 11:02 PM.  A big fat skunk was foraging for Rubber Tree fruit, which lately has been more irresistible than usual to all the wild creatures who come through the yard, as well as the dogs  (Click on photos to enlarge.)

I think this skunk's found a good supply of cat food somewhere.  If you feed your animal outside, be sure to bring in the bowls as soon as they finish.  The skunks are the first to learn where the feeding stations are in the hood, and they'll return night after night at the same time looking for a free meal.
