I write this in the hopes that others who have suffered the cruel fate of having their animals sprayed by a skunk will learn how to deal with the issue of lingering stench.
I have a killer kat. He often eats squirrels and bunnies. I think he maybe thought that the skunk was a larger squirrel. Not so, clearly.
He got sprayed. Full on.. in the face. Then of course proceeded to run wild through every room in the house. He is hiding right now, somewhere outside, drooling and moaning. I'll let him calm down a bit, then it's treatment time.
I went to the drug store, thankfully it opens early, myself reeking to highest of heavens. Yes I got some looks, but then what do I care what others may or may not think of me!? I purchased some Selsun, not Selsun blue, but regular old Selsun with 2.5% Selenium Sulphide.
This will be applied to the cat, carefully, then rinsed again, taking caution not to lose half the skin on my arms in the process. The Selsun acts via an exchange reaction with the sulphides in the skunk stink, rendering it virtually odourless. Thank goodness for my uni days spent in chemistry!
Now, what to do with the rest of the bloody house!!
Here is the killer in action:
