I wouldn't be surprised if, were it possible, you kept a squirrel or a leptictidium as a pet.

I would be surprised if you turned out to actually be a cinnamon-colored skunk in real life.

As far as I know, squirrels (of any species) aren't legal as pets in the State of California, so for the last several years, I've been following kuro-risu 's Flickr and YouTube streams to enjoy the antics and love of a pet squirrel, her now dearly-departed and deeply-missed Lucky. He loved his "mommy" as much as she had loved him for almost 12 years!

I've had dreams of someone, somehow, bringing a lepti back from the depths of time to spend her life as my pet, qith the same love as I've had with pet cats and mice over the last 40-some years...

In other words, I wish!

" I would be surprised if you turned out to actually be a cinnamon-colored skunk in real life.

Ever had a lucid dream? I did, about 20 years ago. I woke up one night, found myself covered in a reddish-brown fur with a bushy tail. At first I thought a squirrel, but without the distinct rodent teeth and with a distinct, but light, familiar scent, it turned out I was briefly a cinnamon-furred skunk! (The natural musk, when not sprayed, is actually pleasant when not nearly as strong as in the spray. And yes, although most think of skunks as being black-and-white, there are rarer colours in nature, which are actually bred in captivity, and most skunk breeders refer to the colours by "flavours", like cinnamon, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, and the rarest, blackberry and raspberry, all due to how much red, brown and black pigments are in the fur.) At this time, I was developing my fursona as an anthro bunny, inspired by, but not based on, Alan Dean Foster's book Quozl, so that became my alias, but after that incident, it became the skunk we all know by now. :) Also, a then-friend said one of my totems is Skunk.

So, be surprised! :)

Da petz: Hence why I stuck in "were it possible". :p

California sure seems to be anti-a lot of things. :\ I know that ferrets as pets are illegal, for some odd reason.  I didn't know about squirrels, though.  I have no idea about Oregon law and squirrels, though.

I don't know how we'd get a leptic to the here and now.  There's the Jurassic Park method, but that requires finding enough DNA in the fossils to sequence, and that's nigh impossible after several million years.  Time travel would get us the DNA, but where the heck are we going to find a TARDIS in the first place? :/


Da skunkz: Eh, close enough to real life.  Who is the dreamer and who is the dream?  Let us be surprised by the lack of difference.

Interesting all that about skunks.  As the motto goes, "We don't stink.  Our enemies do." :p
