A couple of months ago a skunk set up housekeeping near where we park our car in a parking lot across the alley. Well, every time we went to the car we could smell this faint skunky smell. Finally, after a long time, the smell went away and we figured the critter had moved on. Thanks heavens for that!
But we celebrated too soon. We have no proper basement in our house. We only have a crawl space where no one I know could possibly crawl. Some of our feral cats live under there and, now, apparently, so does a skunk. In fact, as I sit here typing I think he must have just sprayed something.
The smell is awful and just constantly hangs around in the house. Does anyone have an idea of how to make him go away? We don't keep the outdoor cats' food out any longer than it takes them to eat, so I know he isn't here for the grub.
I'm going to have my husband help me to do some skunk whispering tonight to see if we can psychically move him on.
Any advise would be appreciated.
(I hope we don't smell like that...
