Family and friends and those I’m connected with on Facebook already know about her, but I haven’t yet mentioned her to all of you! I am absolutely delighted to introduce Smudge!
My hubby and I want to give a huge shout-out to Tails to Tell, the rescue we adopted her from – they do amazing work in southern Alberta and we are so happy to have the opportunity to provide a home for one of their long-term residents. Smudge had lived at the shelter for nearly her entire life – she had been brought there as an approximately two-month-old kitten (someone found her dumped at the waste transfer site near Crossfield, Alberta). She is just over two years old now.
After an initial period of shyness and much hiding, she now follows us everywhere and practices this style of devastatingly adorable art daily (sometimes several times per day):
How am I supposed to withstand that kind of onslaught? “Yes, your Ladyship, I’ll get on that yesterday!”
Those of you who have ever spent time with a cat will completely understand. We are utterly smitten with Smudge.
Congratulations. My rescue cat is sitting by my computer as I type.
Such a nice way to start the day to read about Smudge. A lovely, elegant cat.
Wat een fiere mooie kat.Leuk zo’n maatje
She’s beautiful! I’m always happy when they find a loving home. A blessing to both! 🙂
Your Smudge looks a lot like my Smokey Joe–beautiful, cared-for cats. Smokey had a very rough start, too, but now he’s happy boyo. Lucky Smudge and lucky you!
She is so beautiful! All my cats were rescue cats; it’s so rewarding!
Oh, she is lovely!
We are great animal lovers in our house and have had the pleasure of the company of three cats in our time. They are everything you say and more. Love the Puss in Boots, we always laugh at that, so true!!!
That’s a beautiful story and a beautiful cat!
What a charming name for your sweet kitty. Thanks for adopting a rescue. Smudge, welcome to your forever home. I hope we get to see more o you on Sheryl’s blog in the future. =^. .^=
