Elaine writes, "We adopted Smudge in December and he was really sick when we brought him home. He is fully recovered and such a joy to us. He came into our lives after we had lost two of our long time children Belle Kitty at 20 and Huggy Bear at 15 and he has brightened our lives so much! He loves to play fetch with his mice and sponge balls and just about anything he can get into his mouth. Smudge and his sister Serena are still feeling out their boundries but often I find them curled together cleaning each other up."
