Sad stories of the week

Socks had reached his late teens — an advanced age for a cat — when reports surfaced in late 2008 that he had cancer and [Bill Clinton's secretary, Betty Currie, Socks's guardian] had ruled out invasive efforts to prolong his life.

"It's not a happy prognosis," presidential historian Barry Landau, a friend of Currie's, said at the time.
