Yes, I think she has made friends - because the smell comes and goes, and it is not intense. If she was getting sprayed, it would be unbearable.
She will smell fine for a few days, but then it is back, and bad enough that I really don't want her on my lap. My guess is that she is playing with some baby skunks off and on.
I always knew she was a weird cat, but this is the weirdest thing I have ever heard of. Sigh . . .
