You May Be a Crazy Cat Lady If

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!

I saw that too. The former First Cat. Poor sweetie.

There is something special about tuxedo kitties, isn't there? In my experience, they're usually intelligent and even empathetic. Bon voyage, Socks!!
