One of America's most famous cats died a few days ago at the advanced age of twenty. I tip my mouse to The Cat of the Day, Socks, Mouser in Chief of The Clinton White House. One of my all-time favorite Murphy Brown episodes is the one in which Murphy accidentally catnaps Socks from a White House function. Of course a look alike stand-in was featured on the show, but the cleverness of such a plot left an endearing impression upon this cat lover. I'm afraid your replacement on Pennsylvania Avenue is going to be of the barking variety. Maybe it's just as well you didn't stick around to see that. We'll miss you, Socks!
