Civets are actually not related to cats and are definitely not skunks, a whole other family of animals.


No. Skunks are in the family Mephitidae. Squirrels are in the family Sciuridae.


Neither, while skunks share the same kingdom, phylum, class, and order with dogs and cats, all three belong to different families. The skunk belongs to the Musteloida family whereas dogs belong to the Canidae family and cats belong to the Felidae family.


No and neither are cats, foxes, ferrets, weasels, raccoons, badgers, wolverines, or skunks. They are all in the carnivore family.


no, i haven't ever seen a skunk spray cats before. i should now, we have cats and have caught five skunks.


they are in the same family because they are both cats


Skunks do not typically kill cats. However, depending on the skunk, it may kill kittens because they are smaller than the skunk.


No. Skunks are more closely related to weasels and raccoons than they are to cats, which are felines.


No. Skunks and domestic cats belong to the same Kingdom, Phylum, Class, and Order, but the skunk belongs to the Family Mephitidae and the domestic cat belongs to the Family Felidae. With some exceptions, most animals need to be in the same species group to produce offspring. Some Genus groups, such as Canis, can produce offspring after interbreeding. An example would be a timber wolf and a domestic dog. Being members of the same order would not be genetically possible to produce offspring should breeding occur somehow. I have never personally witnessed this phenomena, but I have known someone who claims that, around his workplace at night, he has frequently witnessed the mating of cats and skunks. I am not certain whether male skunks with female cats or vice versa, but he claims to have seen this. He has never seen any offspring produced from this mating, however. So I think it is possible for them to mate, but not to reproduce.


According to Wikipedia - the Ferret is classified in the family 'Mustelidae' and the Mongoose is in the 'Herpestidae' family. Skunks were previously classified within the Family Mustelidae until 1997 when J. Dragoo, et al, determined that Skunks do not have the same DNA as ferrets. Skunks and Stink Badgers were both re-classified as Mephitidae at that time.



Skunks have long been classified as a subfamily of the weasel family (Mustelidae). Genetic data, however, suggest placement of skunks in their own family, Mephitidae (mephitis being Latin for “bad odour”).


Skunks can not see in the dark like cats do. They are most likely to hunt during the day.


No, skunks are in the weasel family, mustelids. Squirrels are rodents.


No. They are in the weasel family, Mustelids.


Yes, groundhogs are also related to the squirrel and the beaver. Skunks are related to the groundhogs... To find more information, go to Google.com to get the information about these creatures.


No. Skunks are placental mammals of the family Mephitidae. Tasmanian devils are marsupials of the family Dasyuridae.


striped skunks, spotted skunks, hooded skunks, weasels, martens, animals like that.


Skunks do not mark their territories, whereas cats do mark their territory by urinating. Therefore it would be surprising if their urine did smell the same to the human nose. These animals are also different taxonomically: skunks and cats belong to totally different superfamilies, although they both belong to Carnivores. Previous answer(s): yep


All big cats; - lions - tigers - cats


No. Cats are felids, or felines, and belong to the Family, Felidae. Dogs are canids, or canines, and belong to the Family, Canidae.


Both are members of the weasel family.


The skunks come from a family called "mustelids"


No. For instance, cats and dogs both belong to the phylum Chordata but cats belong to the family Felidae and dogs belong to the family Canidae. Family is more specific than phylum.


No, they are mammals from the Mephitidae family in other words skunks are not rodents they are in fact weasels
