Cat gets visit with Powell

Associated Press

WASHINGTON – Colin Powell, the cat, will meet today with Colin Powell, the secretary of state.

Colin Powell, a black Bombay pedigreed cat, has been named cat of the year by the Cat Fanciers’ Association.

Colin Powell, the secretary of state, has agreed to a meeting in the State Department’s Treaty Room on the seventh floor – for pictures, not dialogue.

The room has served lofty purposes through history, including the signing of important treaties.
