Hi, my name is Smudge! My foster mom calls me that because it looks like I have a smudge of dirt on my nose, hence, my name. I am a big boy who has lots of love to share with you! My foster mom doesn't know much about my background, but she knows that I had a family at some point because I'm so friendly and outgoing. I don't understand what happened to cause me to end up homeless in the cold, scary shelter but thank goodness Heartland stepped in and saved me before I went that awful place they call the "gas chamber"! I would really like to have my own forever home where I can get lots of attention, snuggle time and some canned food on occasion. I absolutely adore people and am very social and vocal. I like to jump on your lap, give hugs, and make biscuits with my paws so that you know just how happy I am. I am a mannerly and tidy boy and I am very well-behaved at home, even when left alone. My favorite thing in the world is FOOD, which is quite evident by my large size. Because I'm overweight, my foster mom has me on a reduced calorie diet to help me shed some pounds and this diet must be continued in my new home. Having my own home where I can run and play should help me get down to my once svelte figure. I have been around other kitties and do fine most of the time, but I can sometimes play a bit rough so I would not do well with timid or shy cats. There aren't any doggies at my current foster home, but I would probably fine with one after we have been properly introduced. Older kids are preferred. I am neutered, current on vaccinations, tested negative for FelV/FIV and microchipped - DOB 9/10/11. If you are looking for a laid-back, lap-warmin', biscuit-makin', head-bonkin', lovable purr machine, then I am your guy so please come see me!
