Once upon a time, at a table not very far away, a white cat made a face at a salad. Someone took a picture, and then the Internet got involved. Big time.
The cat's name is Smudge, and his now famous picture was captured at a suburban Ottawa home in June 2018. Now, more than one million followers keep tabs on the finicky feline.
"He eats dinner at our table. He gets really upset if he doesn't have a chair," said Miranda Stillabower, Smudge's owner. "I don't know why he was making that face, but it's the best thing he's ever done."
Stillabower thought the picture was funny, so she posted it on her Tumblr blog. It sat there for a few months until it somehow caught on and got shared tens of thousands of times. --
