Let’s have a Feline Friday! We have images of many Presidential pets in our Presidential Libraries, but few of them are cats. On March 7, 1995, Socks hitched a ride with President Bill Clinton across the South Lawn.

Anselm Kiefer - For Paul Celan (2001-5)
*
Before your late night face, passing solitary between nights that reshaped me too, something came to stand there that was already with us once before, un-moved by thought. *
White-graywell shaft offeeling.Inland — dunegrass blown here driftssand riffles overthe smoke of well songs.An ear cut off listens.An eye sliced in stripsmakes it all all right. *The shipwrecks of heaven sail on —mastssung earthward.You sink your teethinto this woodensong —You are — the song-lashedcolors. 
—Paul Celan, Breathturn
