Wow! Over 50 comments poured in to name this cute little dude. And after much (And I mean much—that's why I wanted a whole month!) deliberation, we now have a name.
Drum roll please...
Smudge the Paradox!
Special thanks to our winner Gina Conroy for her awesome suggestion of "Smudge." Too cute! And so fitting. Smudge says "meeeeeeoooooooooow."
Special thanks to Scott Neth for suggesting "Paradox," because, well, kittens coming from eggs is really a paradox. I liked this concept so much I decided to give Smudgy a title. (See? Nicknames already!)
Gina and Scott, be sure to EMAIL ME and send your mailing information. I have prizes ready for you!
And thank you to everyone who participated in my quirky contest. Keep your eyes open as Smudge makes more appearances in book reviews, contests, and just to say a purrrrrry hello.
