Last night, I was sitting on my patio with a laptop. Around midnight I heard an animal moving nearby, I thought it was my cat. When I looked at it, it was a skunk! It just walked through the patio (which was well lit by the way), maybe five feet from my chair, looked at me and went away. For a moment, I was scared it will spray me, but it didn't seem to be disturbed a bit by my presence.
