It's one of the strangest pets we've ever seen. What is that thing? Gizmo is actually a skunk, according to its owners. It has the run of Megan and Tom Borgmann's house in Indianapolis. “Our friends' think we're crazy,” said Megan. If you’re thinking about what it smells like to own a skunk, fear not, because Gizmo is fixed. He actually smells great because he loves bath time.
