My daughter found Smudgie as a kitten back in the spring of 2004. She found her and our three other little cats in the bushes beside our house and we took all four in.
Smudgie was the softest, sweetest little cat, black and white, with a black "smudge" across her little snout. She loved to lie on my wife and my daughter while they watched TV, purring and cuddling.
Smudge was also the "mama cat" as she got pregnant and had four little kittens of whom we still have three. Sadly, one of them got killed early on, but the others are still with us.
Smudge was diagnosed with Lymphoma two months ago. We put her on medication and prayed hard over her, but GOD decided it was time for her to come home. We believe she's at Rainbow Bridge, along with our other pets who have gone on ahead of us.
She's also with our loved ones who have preceded us in departure from this troubled life. As hard as it has been, and still is, there is comfort in the fact that we will see our sweet little kitty again one day.
