Joe and Jill Biden set to bring a new cat to the White House


The White House is going to get really catty.

President-elect Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden plan on adding a feline to their squad of family pets once they take up residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue on January 20th, according to Today.

While the name and breed of the cat has yet to be revealed, the First Kitty will join the Bidens two German shepherds as residents inside the White House come Inauguration Day.

CBS Sunday Morning first alerted Americans to the purr-fect news.

"President-elect @JoeBiden and his wife @DrBiden won’t just be bringing their German shepherds, Major and Champ to the White House,” host Jane Pauley said in a video shared on Twitter. “The Bidens tell us exclusively that soon they’ll be joined by a cat.”

Expectations are hopeful that the new cat will get along splendidly with her canine companions.

The Bidens’ dog, Major, will be the first rescue dog to live in the White House. Major joined the family in 2018. Their other dog, Champ, has been with the Bidens since 2008.

The furry first dogs have gotten so much attention that an unofficial fan account was created and took off.

@First_Dogs_USA, created for the first pups to grace the halls of 1600 Pennsylvania in four years, is now live.

Per the account’s bio, the furry duo love “nom noms, snuggles, and can’t wait to explore the White House!”

The account even coined the term “DOTUS,” or Dogs of the United States. As of November 29th, the account has more than 61,000 followers.

Since President Trump did not have any dogs, breaking with a long tradition, it’s been four years since any of man’s best friends have walked the halls of 1600 Pennsylvania.

Barack Obama’s Portuguese water dogs, Bo and Sunny, were beloved by the country over the course of his two presidential terms.
