First Lady Jill Biden revealed the long-awaited family cat, who has arrived at the White House to join the First Dog, Commander.
Willow is a two-year-old gray tabby, and the first cat in the White House since George W. Bush’s administration.
The cat had been “waiting in the wings,” living with a foster family over the past months.
“Willow made quite an impression on Dr. Biden in 2020 when she jumped up on the stage and interrupted her remarks during a campaign stop,” said Michael LaRosa, the first lady’s spokesman. “Seeing their immediate bond, the owner of the farm knew that Willow belonged with Dr. Biden.”
Willow is now
sharing ruling the White House beside the First Dog, a German Shepherd puppy named Commander, who was adopted by the Bidens in December.
“Willow is settling into the White House with her favorite toys, treats and plenty of room to smell and explore,” Mr. LaRosa said.
Dr. Jill had voiced concerns about hostility between a cat and Major Biden, the German Shepherd that is now living in a quieter environment with friends of the Bidens.
