Smudge has now arrived at Heronbank and has a cosy room to herself away from the other animals.  She is eating very well, and seems to prefer tinned food to biscuits, but a few days here will soon correct that.  Burns Biscuits are far more nutritious than tinned foods.  She is no longer malnourished, thanks to Katie, but she is still eating for England.  Her pregnancy seems to be well on, but I don’t think her kittening will be imminent.  She is very friendly – 10/10 to Katie for winning her confidence.  She has a non-stop Purr-motor, I guess she realises that she has fallen into caring hands.  I have noticed that her ears are dark inside, so Katie and I will be putting her some ear-drops in for that, starting tomorrow.
