Smudge has gone from just your average house cat to worldwide internet sensation in just a few months, and all of this because his cheeky grimace made the perfect content for hundreds of hilarious memes.

Who is Smudge?

Chances are you've seen him before. White and fluffy, he is most often seen in a photo collage with a blonde woman who is crying and pointing ‘at him’.

Though his online life is full of drama, his real life is actually pretty normal. Smudge is 6 years old and lives with his paw-rents in Canada. He's loves almost everything about his life…except vegetables.

Yep, vegetables are the grossest thing Smudge can think of! Miranda, Smudge's owner, says he has his own seat at the table. But when there’s vegetables around and he gets a whiff of them, he can't help himself from making a gagging face. Miranda one day happened to snap a shot of the hilarious reaction, and posted it on her social media.

Soon, the picture snowballed into viral material, and that’s when Smudge’s paw-rents discovered he had the potential to become a meme-lord.

Due to his fame, Miranda inevitably created Smudge's Instagram page, so that fans all over the world could follow the cat's antics. Most of the time, when he's not grossed out by vegetables, Smudge likes to try and get his paws on the good stuff!

And though he remains judgemental through and through, he is also incredibly cute!
