White House Pets #2 - Socks Clinton
Socks was adopted by the Clintons after he jumped into Chelsea Clinton’s arms as she left her piano teacher’s house in Little Rock, Arkansas.
He became First Cat of the United States in 1993, and kept the title until 1997 when the Clinton’s adopted a dog named Buddy and he took over the role of First Pet.
Socks and Buddy did not get along, Bill Clinton was quoted as saying
“I did better with … the Palestinians and the Israelis than I’ve done with Socks and Buddy.“
When the Clinton’s left the White House they left Socks in the care of Bill’s secretary Betty Currie.
