Farewell, Socks

February 20, 2009 / Posted by:

Socks, the official White House pussy during the Clinton years, has gone on to the great big q-tip in the sky at the age of 20! Socks’ time was coming since he was diagnosed with cancer of the throat back in November.

After holding it down in the White House for 8 years, Socks and Bill Clinton’s sex-a-tary, Betty Currie, became roommates. A family friend of Betty’s told People that Socks was put to sleep this morning in Maryland, because he couldn’t eat or stand anymore. Betty took him for a last walk yesterday. She plans to have him cremated.

The Clintons issued this statement:

Socks brought much happiness to Chelsea and us over the years, and enjoyment to kids and cat lovers everywhere. 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.

Now Socks is in heaven showing Buddy who is the real HPIC (head pussy in charge).

Rest in peace, Socks….
