RIP Socks Clinton

In Bill Clinton, Presidential Pets on February 20, 2009 at 10:47 pm


The ex-Presidential Cat, Socks Clinton, has gone onto kitty heaven after a three month battle with cancer. Socks was 20. He may have been Chelsea’s pet during his stay at the Governor’s Mansion and the White House, but it was former Clinton secretary Betty Currie whom cared for the well-known feline.


“Socks brought much happiness to Chelsea and us over the years, and enjoyment to kids and cat lovers everywhere,” the Clintons said in a statement, released first to PEOPLE.COM. “We’re grateful for those memories, and we especially want to thank our good friend, Betty Currie, for taking such loving care of Socks for so many years.”

RIP Socks


  1. I have to say that I much prefer Socks to the Obama dog – even though that puppy is pretty cute.

  2. Wow i like yur website. It really helped me with the information i wus searching for. thank you, will save.

  3. If Socks was really a beloved member of the Clinton family, why didn’t the cat continue living with them after they left the White House? With all due respect to Ms Currie’s care for Socks until the end, Socks died far away from his “original” family members who also benefited from the PR value that the cat gave them, e.g. as the mascot/host of the White House children’s website, etc.

  4. Superb publish from specialist also it will probably be a fantastic know how to me and thanks really a lot for posting this beneficial data with us all.
