Arrival Story: Just after my daughters thirteenth birthday a friend and neighbour told me about two kittens on a local farm that were not wanted and were going to be p,t,s. they were a girl and a boy, she was taking the boy and asked if I would take the girl, I spoke to my then husband about it and he said no. As the time came near to her being p,t,s, I thought more and more about it and decided that yes I would take her, I couldn't bear the thought that I was the cause of her loseing her life before it had began. So my friend brought home to me this little bundle of grey fluff about eight weeks old, It was love at first sight. Even my ex-husband fell for her charms, and the male cat we already had, Smokey, was a surragate mum to her and even let her try and suckle him.
Bio: Smudge moved with us once and settled down at once, she welcomed all subsequent felines into the family with charm and grace and helped them feel at home.As smudge got older she had one or two minor health problems but nothing much untill the day that she collapsed when we picked her up, we rushed her to an emergency vet who could find nothing wrong with her, she went on o,k for about twelve monthes then she suddenly started to age as cats do sometimes, we had experienced this with Smokey only twelve months before and we knew it wouldn't be long before we said goodbye. Smudge went to the bridge to join her mate Smokey at about six fortyfive on the morning of 27th June 1996, Till we meet again, Bless you.
