  1. Smudge is adorable ! Super photo !

  2. oooo, smudge is so cute and looks a bit like boo. Cool name too.

  3. Hi Leigh,
    Thanks so much. Smudge is a real sweetie pie. He has claimed the covered porch off the kitchen as his territory and pretty much stays there about 95% of the time. He hangs out on his little rug on top of one of the chest freezers and waits for me to come out and pet him.

    Hi boo,
    Thank you,too. Smudge got his name from that little smudge of color by his nose. I usually call him Smudgie or Little Smudge Pot (all of our cats seem to acquire several different names), but Joe calls him Fluffernutter because he's so fluffy. You should see him in winter when he turns into a Superfluff. Gorgeous!

  4. I thought Smudge had gotten his name from falling into a pan of oil once?

  5. Hi Dave,
    I was thinking about that pan of oil yesterday when I posted this photo. I couldn't remember if it was Smudge or his sister Hi Precious who somehow fell into it. I do clearly remember holding whichever kitten it was under the bathroom sink faucet with one hand and vigorously scrubbing its coat with the other. What a mess. Whoever it was eventually came clean!

    I thought Smudge had already been named before the oil spill. He definitely has had that little smudge on his face since birth.

  6. Superfluff sounds like a nice name too. Occasionally, we call Boo, "the Rug" in the same tone as "the Rock"! She looks like one as she is also fluffy and has short legs. When she runs, it looks like a moving fluffy rug.

  7. Such a lovely photo!

  8. Smudge looks very much like the maine coon mix we adopted before Christmas. Is he a maine coon?


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
