    Socks, the cat who won international fame during his years in the Clinton White House, was euthanized Friday after months of treatment for cancer.

    Socks, who was born in 1989, was put to sleep about 10 a.m. at Three Notch Veterinary Clinic in Hollywood, Maryland, said veterinary assistant Rae Dera. Veterinarians say he was probably either 19 or 20 years old.

    Um....so is the year of birth in question or are the vets just determined to state the obvious?


    Go to the light, Socks!

    I would've never pegged Cas as a cat person. You can never really KNOW a person.

    That's truly sad news. Socks struck a chord with me as I have a coffee mug with the Capitol building and Socks on it. Got it years ago during my 4th of July trip to Syracuse, NY.
    RIP Socks.

    How sad . Hoa hoa....Sock is no longer with us.

    By the way, my cat Charlie have not come back for a couple of days. She like to do that, but just when I start thinking she's death, she be infront of my front door.

    It's sad but Socks had a great kitty life.
    I will always identify Socks with the best Clinton era memories.

    R IP friend!
