"Morris-the-Cat leaped off Tycho's knee and tore across the kitchen peering anxiously into the enchanted oblong of light the open door revealed. Lines of poetry came back to Tycho: 'It was a miracle of rare device, a sunny pleasure dome with caves of ice.' What Coleridge had described was a fridge from a cat's point of view." Margaret Mahy, The Catalogue of the Universe.
