Our beautiful little cat Smudge died this weekend. She'd been missing since Friday and we were fearing the worst. After searching in the woods, roadways and gardens Ali found her this morning, she'd been hit by a car a few hundred yards from home. She was a smashing, cuddly wee thing, full of fun, mischief and a great mouser and we're now missing her badly, as is her big ginger brother Clint. There are somethings you just don't want to ever have to write about.


  1. condolences on losing your sister lost a lovely, friendly (dog-like) cat called Rebel a wee while back...went to the vets because of a mouth ulcer...and didn't come out again (the anesthetic, ironically, did it for him)

  2. Dreadful news guys - a great wee cat was Smudge...

    My first little cat had the same Fate right outside her home. Sadly, she was not killed outright but suffered so many injuries that the Vet had no option but to put her to sleep. That Day etched on my Memory.
    I know how you are feeling.
