Writes THE EXAMINER: "The Beloved Dot posted this picture online, with this caption: 'Custom designed 110 years ago for the kittens of today! Perfectly contoured, and the trickle of water assures freshness for even the fussiest of cats!'
"This little kitty is 'Smokey,' also known as 'The Football' for her constant presence as an oblate spheroid tucked under the aforementioned Dot's arm. The sink? Up in the servant's-quarters bathroom on the third floor of our 110-year-old house."
