A eulogy for Smudge…

Posted on Friday, September 7, 2007 in Family, Quickie

… won’t be needed just yet.

She’s ALLIIVE!!!

I couldn’t believe my eyes this morning when I flung open our front door.  There she was, standing proud, though somewhat thin and tired looking.  As we gushed over her and smothered her with hugs, we began to wonder just where on earth she’d been for the last two weeks.  We will have to give her time to compose her story, but in the meantime, I’d like to think that unbeknownst to us, there was a giant meteor headed right for earth that would have completely obliterated life as we know it, but was happily thwarted by Smudge and her team of supercats just in the nick of time.

Have you ever had a day when absolutely everything does what it’s supposed to do and karma finally sits evenly in your favour?  I’ve just had a day like that.

I’m the happiest little camper there ever was.

    Was that Tiddles in the picture?

    Enjoy Happyland!

    Awww. That’s such good news. Get her a collar and a tag just in case she’s taken to the travellin’ life! Plus you might get some handsome good Samaritan return her to you. Could be handy while TATs flat on his back!

  3. Grandad says:

    Wayhay!!!! Great news. Good Ol’ Smudge.

    Great advice from Baino.

    I’d lay odds she was catnapped and held in a house where they hoped she’d stay. But she knew where her true home is!

    Granny says she is to sleep on your bed tonight. [Smudge, not Granny. And TAT can sleep out in the shed. GD]

  4. Robert says:

    Cool! she’s back then.

    How many lives has she left now?

  5. Grandad says:

    None – if they feck off tomorrow night camping and leave her!!!!

  6. Robert says:

    Grandad – They could always drop her over to yours! Maybe you could use a hind leg or two for your latest recipe?

  7. Grandad says:

    Smudge and Broccoli Bake? Hmmmmm! Ymmmm!

  8. Robert says:

    Mississippi Smudge Pie?

    K8! My heart was in my mouth when I saw that title. I’m so glad the wanderer has returned. :)

  10. Medbh says:

    Love that picture, K8.

    Cat is very stringy meat. One would have to make a nice Birria with a Salsa Guadalajara. Now, of course I’m not talking about Smudge. Just saying….ya’ know.

  12. K8 says:

    Smudge is grand.

    We locked her into our house while we went camping.

    She shat… not on the mat, but directly over the plughole of the bath. Now THAT’s consideration for you.

  13. Robert says:

    Consideration and cat are two words that should never be used in the same sentence together. When referring directly to the cat that is!

    Unless of course it was to do with the welfare of the cat.

    E.g. I shot/killed/executed or otherwise got rid of the cat out of consideration for others.

    Yep. I hate cats. But I’m glad yours is alright though ;)

  14. Kate says:

    Congratulations and welcome home, kitty. Keep up the mystery, you’re more catlike that way. A dog would tell all.

  15. Alice says:

    Welcome home Smudge. I’ll bet you’d have stories to share if you could talk. I love the picture by the way!
