FEB 11, 2016:
Smudge, or Smudgy, is 11 years old. She is a small, spayed, fluffy black cat with a white star at her throat. She has not had a recent exam. Smudgy has perfect litter box habits and never has accidents. She has had an upper respiratory infection and dermatitis (at different times), but has been perfectly healthy for many years.
Smudgy comes from a home of two adults and other cats. She is shy of visiting strangers, and has never been around dogs or children. She spends more than half her time outside. She stays in all the time during cold/inclement weather, but in good weather, she frequently spends the nights as well as the days outside - but she always comes home.
Smudgy is a lap cat, and loves to be held and petted, but would likely take a while to warm up to a new person. She is very playful. She loves to toss up and chase fur mice and small plushies.
