Smudge is a very active cat, but has her moments where she can be a couch potato. She is very talkative and likes to talk back to others. If you say her name she will more than likely respond with a meow. She is very independent and likes to come to you on her own terms. She is playful and will give warnings when she has had enough. She loves head scratches, sometimes loves butt scratches, she dislikes belly rubs. She does love her chin scratched from time to time. She doesn’t like to be picked up sometimes to be petted and will give you a warning when she is done with the petting affection.
She is okay with some cats, she likes other cats that like to be active and wrestle around. She does not do well with cats who are always calm because she wants to play. Which can lead to a fight between cats. She may be okay with smaller dogs, she was okay with a puppy at first, but as the dog grew she would hide. If you love an independent, sassy, active, talkative cat. She is the right cat for you.
