The White House is gaining a new resident! President Joe Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden are adopting a cat. The first couple confirmed the news during an interview with the Today show.
“She is waiting in the wings,” the first lady shared. The president admitted it wasn’t his idea, but noted, “It’s easy.” The cat will be joining the couple’s dogs Major and Champ. Major received training following two biting incidents.
“So let me get this straight, Major Biden, who’s clearly had some trouble adjusting to life at the White House, now he’s going to be forced to contend with a cat as well in the White House,” Today’s Craig Melvin said.
The first lady explained that it was part of Major’s training. “They took him into a shelter with cats,” she said. “He did fine.” The first lady called Major, whom they adopted in 2018, a “sweet, lovable dog.”
