Dear Mr. Pinkwater,

I just thought you’d like to know we have named our cat after you. We were inspired by your appearance on Click and Clack’s radio show where it was revealed that the proper units for measuring the width of one’s backside is the pinkwater.

As the attached photo shows, we have at least a two-pinkwater cat.

Daniel replies:

Maybe I was unwise to allow the Tappet Brothers to name the unit of rump-width measurement after me. On the other hand, it's a shot at immortality--otherwise, I might be remembered as an author, and who'd want that? It's a little-known fact, that I was named after a cat, so your naming a cat after me has a certain symmetry.
