WASHINGTON — A new member of the first family is walking the White House halls.
“Meet Willow!” she captioned a series of photos of the first feline, a gray tabby who hails from a Pennsylvania farm.
“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,” spokesman Michael LaRosa said in a statement. “Seeing their immediate bond, the owner of the farm knew that Willow belonged with Dr. Biden.”
The 2-year-old cat’s name is a tribute to Willow Grove, Pennsylvania – Dr. Biden’s hometown.
The Bidens also have a German shepherd puppy, Commander, according to The Associated Press. Their previous dogs – also German shepherds – include Champ, who died last year, and Major, who was rehomed with family friends after displaying aggressive behavior at the White House, the AP reported.
