This is Smudge. He's 3 years old.
He got his name because when he was a little tiny kitten, he had a small smudge of black fur on the top of his head. That smudge faded away as he grew but the name remained. Smudge is a pure white cat, I guess they're called February cats. He is sleek and smooth and beautiful.
He was rescued along with his siblings from the garage of an abandoned house by where my daughter Shauna used to live. She brought him and his sister Zoe home to stay with us temporarily until she found a place of her own. She was busy with her life so their care fell to Rich and I and it didn't take long for us to get attached to them. When my daughter moved out, Smudge and his sister stayed!
He is a very sweet cat and very affectionate to the other cats, but he does occasionally like to pick on his sister! Every morning when I feed the cats their canned food, he has to be on the counter eating before I'm even done putting the food in the bowls. Then later he can be found licking out the cans. He has pretty good appetite for such a slim cat!
His favorite thing to do is to lay in any sunny spot or look out of the window and chatter at any birds, squirrels or bugs that he sees.
He's very precious, especially to me.
