There may be a lot of presidential dogs, but this is a presidential cat. Socks is the cat of former US president Bill Clinton. Socks was soon the official presidential pet back in 1991 and was so for six years until Socks was soon replaced by a labrador retriever named Buddy. And just like how an only child reacts to suddenly having a sibling in the family, Socks did not like Buddy at all. When the Clinton family moved out of the White House back in 2001, Socks was given to Bill Clinton’s secretary, Betty Currie.
