SKUNKS stands for, Skunks' Keen Uniqueness Needs Kind Support. What that means is...can you guess?...This page is a petpage supporting one of the most stylish and overlooked painted pet in Neopia, the skunk. For a fairly low price, a pet can be painted a color that shows such simplicity, elegance, cuteness, and style. Though the paint brush is naturally one of the most beautiful, it can easily be beaten by another. Pink, purple, split, stripped, spotted, speckled, rainbow...the list goes on for awhile. With so many bright paint brushes around to catch your eye, it is hard to look over to the black and white paint brush at first. It is only natural for someone's eyes to wander to something bright and flashy.
I'm so bright and shiny next to that skunk paint brush. You just have to buy me.
That gold paint brush really grabbed your attention didn't it? But don't listen to it. Though golden paint brushes are special in their own way, it does not provide your pet all that a skunk paint brush does.
Naninhah stories include...
People often relate skunk paint brushes to smell. Though the smell may be the first thing that comes to mind, it does not at all portray the personality of the skunk pet or the life style. No skunk actually smells bad. In fact, they smell the same as any other pet. The smelliness is something that can be turned off and on. If a skunk pet gets scared, you may smell a non-pleasant odor, but the smell is only for defense. They don't typically smell that way.
Being stinky is no fun.
Due to this idea that skunk pets are smelly, skunks have to face many people daily with the wrong impression in their heads. At the sight of the skunk, some people may actually whip out a clip from their pocket and put it on their noses. Maybe even actually run away. This behavior can lower the self-esteem of many skunk pets. Maybe even possibly re-paint themselves. Such a beautiful color should not go to waste.
But there are plenty of people out there that absolutely adore these skunk pets and know how truly beautiful the color is. This page was made to help people around Neopia discover how wonderful skunks can be, and support the skunks out there that decided to adopt this paint brush style.
He has adorable big yellow eyes and has been the star of a few NT stories. His name is _Naninhah_, a typical skunk pet and is the host of this particular petpage. He has already been a skunky inspiration for a few pets. He also supports P.A.W.S., a guild dedicated to finding pounded pets homes. Naninhah was a pounded pet himself and is still haunted by his past. He is afraid to speak publicly and doesn't want to face rejection again. That is not possible now. He went from being a primary painted pet lost in the world to being a very loved and respected skunk pet of Neopia.
Naninhah has won over Neopians' hearts by his cute behavior and appearance. His silent but strong personality is very lovable, and his black and white coat could not fit him any better.
He was the inspiration for this page and is one of the best neopets you can ever have. I love you, Nanin!

On the 22nd of December, a very wonderful skunky event happened that acknowledged skunks all around a world with a free item and an animation. Only a few days previous to the advent, the long awaited Skunk Xweetok was available. Then, the Skunk Xweetok got a role in the advent calendar, as an impatient, snooty pet, trying to sell her skunk perfume.
The poor Xweetok wasn't getting much luck selling her perfume, so she sat at her little booth, swishing her tail back and forth, impatient and frustrated. Then a red Kyrii and a yellow Ixi walked by, giggling and not paying attention to the Skunk Xweetok. That Xweetok was not going to let that slide!
She leaped into action when she saw the opportunity to sell her Skunk Perfume. She got right in front of the two giggling pets. The Xweetok had a nice big smile on her face. In attempt to show off her fabulous perfume, the Xweetok sprayed the two with her perfume.
The Ixi and the Kyrii collapsed onto the floor from the awful smell. The Xweetok must not have noticed, because she continued to smile.
Apparently, the Skunk Perfume business did not go well for the Xweetok, because thousands of bottles were given out for free in this advent. The perfume is called Eau De Skunk. Doesn't it sound fabulous?
To be able to look at the animation, FGN-Guild.com has all advent calendar videos preserved for you.
With all of this blab about skunks. Skunks this, skunks that...There has not yet been living proof that all to be claimed on this page is true. Below are some real skunks that support the SKUNKS cause. All of these pets are beautiful and adorable with strong loving personalities and living proof of how truly beautiful and awesome skunks are.
Ever since gutsy little Xynaara was dropped head-first into Neopia on that fateful day, she had problems to deal with. Among the many names she was called- "Alien", "Sky-Beast", and "Flesh-eating Destroyer" to list a few- "Stinky" was also mentioned. All the names were based on one detail; she was a skunk. Picture it, being dropped from the sky into a new world--er...part of Neopia, and when you try to make friends (while still recovering from landing on your head, no less) they call you stinky, smelly, and gross when you are, in fact, none of those things. Of course, soon these ignorant Neopians found that Xynaara was not at all stinky, a bit eccentric perhaps, but far from stinky. Because of this realization, she has managed to make friends. Still, as a result of this early abuse, Xynaara is cautious when trying to make new friends. There will always be foolish Neopians in the world who judge solely by color...and head trauma, but it's their loss for missing out on the chance to befriend a truly out of this world Neopet.
Pumpkin is a very strong willed Gelert. She spends everyday working hard to improve her skills in just about everything. She dreams to be the best all around pet in existence. Pumpkin is the well dressed fashion model you dream about. She is the shopkeeper of your favorite store. She's is the smart intellect to always look up to. She is the heroine in the most action-packed novel you can imagine. She also has her own gallery of many different impressive items. Sure. Most pets might collapse in exhaustion, but Pumpkin can do it all. In addition to all Pumpkin is, she is a Skunk. Who could beat that?
Tokiiyo's name is pronounced like the well known capital of Japan, Tokyo. This pet was lovingly and thoughtfully created by his owner, anigma. Tokiiyo is thought of as a bit of a rock star with the white skunk fringe. He's one of the most expensive skunks out there, carefully painted just right. This pet's look all started before he was born. His owner, after many years of playing, got her first Faerie Fountain Quest. The owner decided to take full advantage of this opportunity. Tokiiyo the Aisha was soon after created. He was painted Ghost to obtain the chain collar he proudly wears around his neck. Later, the Fountain Faerie magically transformed the Aisha into a pirate, giving him his pirate outfit. Right afterward, to complete Tokiiyo's look, he was painted skunk, creating what we see as a Pirate Skunk. The young Aisha shines with personality and energy. He's the type who doesn't normally stay in one spot. He enjoys exploring new areas and lurking around in new places. Blessed by the Fountain Faerie, he is a very magical pet.
Mischievous, cool, and spunky. Moufette is one tough Xweetok. Right after the skunk Xweetok came out, Moufette begged her owner to get painted. Moufette's name means "skunk" in French and is born for the color. She was painted immediately after the skunk xweetok's release. Moufette loves anything black and white and would love to befriend any other skunk. Truly a pure and beautiful black and white skunk.
Tuckborough is a natural charmer. He can generally be caught wearing award-winning outfits that give a cool and sometimes classy vibe about him. Young pets tend to look up to the Jetsam. Socializing is something Tuckborough enjoys, and rarely does he meet anybody that doesn't like him. The Skunk color the Jetsam wears contributes strongly to his look. Deciding his color was easy for him - nothing is better than skunk.
Zemi_ZeeZee likes to be called Zeezee. Only recently she was painted the color of skunk. When she first saw the opportunity to be painted, she didn't see what was so cool about the color skunk, but after being able to experience the color, she does not want to be painted anything else. She's proud of it. The young Zafara wishes she can live in the winter wonderland, Terror Mountain, or, more specifically, the slushie shops. She adores slushies and wishes she can drink them all day long. Showing her love for Terror Mountain, Zeezee has a Polarchuck named Lillua. Zeezee enjoys playing with her Polarchuck as well as reading when she's not running around in Terror Mountain.
Angelianan is a skunky Acara that is interested in nature and how things change around her. As a young pet, she is easily fascinated by her surroundings, and she embraces it by reading, observing nature, and communicating with others. Though there are a lot of things she does like, she does not like "preppy" pets that spend too much time on appearance. Angelianan doesn't need to worry about her own appearance because she is beautiful as she is, as a skunk. She loves to strike up conversations and show off her personality, and if anybody didn't like her, it wouldn't phase her mood one bit. She's proud to be a skunky pet, and she's proud of herself.
Josaphine (Jo or Josa for short) was born on the 9th day of storing, Y9. Only minutes after her creation, she was painted the elegant color of skunk. As a very young Aisha, she is generally shy and quiet. She reserves herself by drawing pictures of her surroundings or by reading books by herself. Though shy, she cares about her appearance and makes sure her fur is as shiny and as well groomed as it can be. She has a cute high pitched voice, and when she does open up she can be silly and well....girly. Both Josa and her owner, Ashley, are very proud of her skunky color.

Send a neomail to Czenko if you see a skunk story in the NT that is definitely worth looking at.
Stinky, or Just Skunky?
This is a skunk article addressing the smelly issue about skunks. Do they smell? Do people look down on them because of that idea? This article expresses a view on that. The writer is also the owner of a skunk aisha.
This is a short story staring a Skunk Ixi named Christy. Christy has a very strong skunk personality and isn't afraid to say exactly what she thinks. This story describes a life changing event that would make Christy realize importance in some things that she never saw before, and maybe think a little before talking.
Ailemea is a blue xweetok, a proud NT story writer. She is the only female pet of four. The xweetok got up one morning, calm, relaxed, and in a good mood. She took care of her daily chores, whistling happily as she moves along, but she realizes her family is acting even more strange than usual. Before Ailemea could even catch her family in their suspicious act, Ailemea feints when she realizes that a new pet is moving into her room. And that pet is no other than a female Skunk.
