Smudge has been very sick and has been having trouble maintaining his red blood cell count. The vet is not sure what is causing it, and his condition changes from day to day. He is negative for FIV and FeLV, so it seems to be some sort of virus which is bothering him, although they have not ruled out bone marrow problems.
He is such a handsome young boy that we are all keeping him in our thoughts and prayers. You can find Smudge at Smudge and Zoe. Zoe is his sister, the pair live in Alberta, Canada.

I had created a badge for him for use on the cat blog sidebars earlier:
Normally I would use Photoshop for this kind of thing but I did it in PhotoSuite instead and had a little trouble getting it cropped properly, so their is a bit of white along the edges that I'm not happy with.
