Melissa McCarthy’s Mom Accidentally Pet a Wild Skunk

Melissa McCarthy told Ellen about how her parents rescued cats, and at one point had over 30 living in the barn at their home. She gave an example of how to properly call the cats in for dinner, and recalled the time her mom hilariously mistook a skunk for a cat! The actress also chatted about how all her 10-year-old daughter wanted for her birthday was a stunt harness.

    Violin lessons: when my sis was learning the cello it was Sept and they were getting ready for Christmas school shows. The cellos only got the harmony-never the melody. I went in to ask my mother to please please limit how long she practiced. My mother goes in and I hear her say “oh, honey, you keep practice I think we are going to love seeing you in the orchestra. You sound so good.’’ I. Asked my bro’s does he sound good they just shook their heads-the cello never sounds good.

    I was awoken in the middle of the night recently by the sound of my kitty’s food bag rustling and very loud crunching. I thought “geeze, kitties, you’re being so loud!” I crawled out of bed, half asleep, to put away the food bag. I reached down to pet my kitties and noticed that their fur was really rough and coarse! I turned the light on and realized that I had been petting two raccoons who must have come inside through the pet door!
