Nothing is known about Skidmark's life before or as the outbreak began. It's possible he was born after the outbreak.
After reaching Daniel's compound, Victor Strand is greeted by Skidmark before they are interrupted by a walker. When Daniel emerges, he notes that Skidmark likes Victor but doesn't think much of it because Skidmark licks his own ass.
After having breakfast with Daniel, Skidmark joins him in disarming deadly traps left by the previous owner of the warehouse. As part of this, Daniel attaches a bell to Skidmark's collar and sends him towards some walkers, distracting them and allowing Daniel to easily dispatch them. Skidmark draws out a zombified woman who fell victim to one of the traps, allowing Daniel to put her down.
That night, Skidmark notices Charlie before joining Daniel in his car. The next day, Daniel attempts to use Skidmark in a similar manner, only to find a herd occupying the next trapped store. As Daniel and Charlie take an alternate approach, Skidmark paws at the windows, his bell drawing the walkers to the front and triggering the trap. As a result, the glass at the front of the store gets shot out and Daniel, Charlie and Skidmark flee with an annoyed Daniel commenting that he's just going to leave the cat behind at some point. When Daniel remains behind to lead the herd on foot, Skidmark returns to the warehouse with Charlie.
Later, as Daniel prepares to leave again to continue his mission, he decides to leave Skidmark behind and asks Charlie to look after him. As Daniel leaves, Skidmark jumps on the table and sits down as the group enjoys a meal.
