>Is this expression commonly used in people parlance? I have cats, myself.
My wife and I have friends in Portland, OR, who regularly referred to
their dog as "checking her pee-mail." Their phrase was definitely a
pun on e-mail, and dates to the '90s. I was under the impression that
they'd coined the phrase themselves, but I don't really know -- I'm a
cat person, too.
