    WITH their reputation for causing a stink, the skunk may seem like the most unlikely pet. But Deborah Cipriani keeps 50 of the animals in her own home. The 55-year-old, from North Ridgeville, Ohio, runs America's only rescue centre for domestic skunks. But it's not like any other shelter. The animals are given free reign of the five-bedroom house and they're even allowed to sleep on the bed. Deborah, has to get up at 4.30 every morning just to feed and clean them all before she goes to work.
