Sunday Smudge Update

Smudge finally decided to talk to me for a little bit. I even managed to coax a faint purr from my dearest buddy. It was pretty short lived though, he took off as soon as he could. My only thought was that as I watched him slink around the corner of Grandma's place was that his tail was pointing upright, the sign of a happy cat. I thanked him for letting me know that, or at least I thanked his back end, because that was the last thing of him I saw.

As for how he is doing, he is slowly becoming the gorgeous cat he was before his CRF diagnosis. His coat is as luxurious as always. His spine is slowly being covered with a nice healthy layer of muscle and fat.

His new friend, Chloe, sat with me as Grandma and my Wife gave Smudge his fluids. She sat and chatted and told me that her and Smudge play lots this week and that he is her bestest friend ever. I told her that is good because once apon a time, he was my bestest friend ever.

My wife says that Grandma has pictures of Smudge enjoying his new home. Once I have them I will post them as part of Smudge's Sunday update.

I'm glad Smudge showed you his happy tail. I think Chloe and Smudge are a good match and really needed each other.

What a great update on Smudge!! I'm glad to hear that everything is going so well for Smudge, and Chloe. Smudge sure has helped her overcome her shyness, hasn't he? And, she, by being his friend and companion, has helped him to relax. A beautiful match.

I agree that Smudge will always be your bestest friend ever, even if he doesn't always show it. I'm glad that he let you see his happy tail and that he is doing so much better. It looks like he and Chloe really needed each other and now they are making each other very happy.
