Former First Cat Socks dies of cancer
Hail and farewell, Socks.
The black and white cat, a former First Pet during the Clinton administration, was euthanized at a Maryland clinic Friday after lengthy treatment for cancer, CNN reported.
After the Clintons left the White House in 2001, Socks lived under the care of former President Bill Clinton's secretary, Betty Currie.
"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.
