A conversation like this occurs in your household.
Jason: Did you hear about Socks?
Me: The Clinton's cat? That lived with them in the White House? The one that went home to live with Bill Clinton's WH secretary?
Jason: Um, yes.
Me: Did he die? He was pretty old.
Actually he was put to sleep after a round of treatment for cancer. Poor old fella. I've always had a super soft spot for tuxedo cats. My late Boo was one and was really one of the best cats I've had in my life.
Loki sez: A moment of silence for one of the few, the proud, the White House cat!
