Smokey came to us as a previously tenured professor at Helping Paws in Woodstock, IL. She has written an often-cited paper on licking and possesses extensive experience in endurance purring. She often impresses peers by her purring sessions that last hours. Her extracurricular activities include sleeping on humans' faces.
As headmistress of Kitten Academy, she believes in sternly enforcing student rules, an aspect of kitten education that is often overlooked due to high levels of student cuteness.
