This wonderful post from Bad Penny at The Hen House made me think about our cat. He was one of a pair that we got many moons ago (14 years in fact) after I miscarried twins at 20 weeks. They were our first baby's and we love them dearly. We only have one left in our life now a wonderful OAP who goes by the title of Mr Smudge. It used to be just smudge, but so many people kept calling him a she that we didn't want he to get a complex so the Mr was introduced.
Now you wont find me saying this often, as I always though Mr Smudge aka TheCookingFat had a fine life here in TheMadHouse, well the truth be told he did, until the MiniMads came along.
