Abraham Lincoln was the first president to bring a cat to the White House. Secretary of State William Steward gifted Lincoln two cats: Tabby and Dixie, after his election.
Lincoln later adopted three stray kittens found near then-Union General Ulysses S. Grant's headquarters in City Point, Va. during the Siege of Petersburg.
More recently, Bill Clinton had his beloved adopted stray cat "Socks" and George W. Bush had a black cat named India "Willie" Bush.
India was named after baseball player Rubén Sierra, who was nicknamed "El Indio" during his time with the Texas Rangers while Bush owned the team.
