Socks Clinton Dies at 20
It's the end of an era. Socks, the Clinton's cat, died of throat cancer. Socks started life as a stray who Chelsea found when the family lived in the Arkansas Governor's mansion. From there he went to his job as First Cat. Now that's a good career move. He performed his White House duties well, enjoyed the company of Buddy, the Clinton's dog, and along with Buddy was the subject of a book Hilary Clinton wrote called, Dear Socks, Dear Buddy: Kids' Letters to the First Pets. Socks even made time to give a tour of the White House on the Internet.
When the Clintons left the White House, Betty Currie, President Clinton's secretary, asked him to live with her. He became quite attached to her during the White House years and spent hours sitting on a chair next to her desk outside the Oval Office. She cooked his special favorites for him including chicken. Currie plans to have Socks cremated.
The world of cat lovers will miss you, Socks. You lived a good life and served your country well.
