New York, Feb 21 (ANI): Bill Clintons family has bid farewell to a cat named Sock, whom they adopted while he was President of the US, after the White Houses renowned pet lost its long battle with cancer.

A CNN report suggests that the black and white cat was deeply loved by Chelsea Clinton and the whole family.

“Socks brought much happiness to Chelsea and us over the years, and enjoyment to kids and cat lovers everywhere,” the New York Daily News quoted the Clintons as saying.

However, after the Clintons left the White House in 2001, Socks was taken care of by the former Presidents secretary, Betty Currie.

The cat fell ill recently and was taken to Maryland hospital, where it finally died. (ANI)
