Skunks and furry[edit]

In the fandom, they are viewed with higher regard than in society as a whole. Skunks are often considered to be playful and affectionate; some even make it to sex symbol. Sabrina Online is a well-known webcomic with such a skunk main character. Another skunk of furry popularity is the Warner Brothers cartoon skunk Pepé Le Pew. Pepe's infamous amorous adventures have gained him the status of a furry sex symbol, inspiring numerous yiff art featuring himself and/or his younger female counterpart Fifi LA Fume.

Female skunks are sometimes referred to as "skunkettes" which is seen as an affectionate name for female skunks.
