R.I.P. Socks
Many people think hosiery will live forever. Sadly, Socks does not, as it has been announced that the cat famous for his tenancy at the White House has passed away.

Gracing the national and international stage for 19 years, Socks the cat was Clinton's pet while Bill fulfilled his role as Mr President between 1993 and 2001.

He was first part of the Clinton administration during Bill's tenure as governor of Arkansas in 1993, with the kitty adopted for his daughter Chelsea.

Socks was one of two pets owned by the Clintons, with Buddy the Labrador retriever joining the First Cat in 1997.

Bill Clinton continues to chip in on international and domestic affairs in the US, recently backing President Obama's decision to inject a financial stimulus into the American economy.
