R.I.P. Socks, the White House Cat

Her Royal Highness was saddened to read that her political hero, Socks the White House cat, passed away last Friday at the age of 18 years. Born as a stray, Socks clawed his way up the ladder of success to become First Cat in the Clinton administration. Socks lived at the White House until 2001, running the country with a firm, but fair, paw. During that time, a particularly funny episode of Murphy Brown concerned his inadvertent catnapping by Murphy following a press conference at the White House. It was a favourite episode of HRH and myself.

Ah Socks, we hardly knew ye.
