It's Hobkin's birthday! The fuzzwit is five years old today. According to American Domestic Skunk Association skunk show standards, five years qualifies as a senior skunk. So far, Hobkin doesn't show any signs of slowing down. Thankfully.
We're baking a cherry pie for him to celebrate his birthday. He'll get a small

Big smile for the camera!
Bigger smile! Hamming it up.
Munching a greenie.
Paw licking good.
