A pretty, gray tabby who lived on a Pennsylvania farm not long ago has taken up residence at the White House with the first family. Her name is Willow, and back in 2020, she hopped on stage with Jill Biden, who was on the campaign trail for her husband.
The unsolicited interaction resulted in the first lady becoming enamored with the friendly feline and committing to make her a part of the Biden family. On Friday, President Biden introduced Willow via Twitter:
Willow joins Commander, a German shepherd puppy who joined the family last month.
Michael LaRosa, Mrs. Biden’s spokesman, said that Willow is adjusting to her new home:
“Willow is settling into the White House with her favourite toys, treats and plenty of room to smell and explore.”
Willow is the first cat in the White House since President George W. Bush’s cat, India, lived there.
