At first I thought that nothing had happened- I couldn't smell anything, which I still don't understand. But she started freaking out, rubbing all over the grass- and then the smell hit!
So thank heaven for internet, early bed times (for keeping babies out of the way while you clean up) and a dad who is willing to get out of bed to help!
I made the cocktail that was recommended the most online. Unfortunately she got sprayed in the face (being the same size as the skunk). Keep in mind this is all at midnight.
And the worst part- she haaaaaaates getting rinsed. Especially her face- presicely where she was sprayed. And it was so cold!
I ended up having to pin her down pretty tightly. She was trying so hard to get away from the water. I think, though, that seeing her struggling, not away from me, but trying to get into my arms, and how she was freaking out, but didn't even attempt to nip at me as I sprayed her down with freezing water on a cool night while her eyes were stinging and she was afraid of drowning, gave dad a new found respect for just how good a little girl she really is. (He, inexplicably, has never been a Kiki fan.)
AAAnd... after all that she still stinks. And so do I...Lovely.
