A pervasive rumor has swirled the White House Biden throughout his presidency: Will the Bidens really get the cat they promised us? This weekend, the President and Dr Biden confirmed that indeed, the cat is coming.
The first couple spoke with NBC’s Craig Melvin, who wasn’t afraid to ask the tough questions – namely, demanding that the Bidens speak to their feline pet, or lack thereof. “She’s waiting backstage,” Dr. Biden replied.

The president denied the cat was his idea and the couple were suspicious of the new pet’s arrival. However, feline lovers can rejoice at the news that there will soon be a first cat. Melvin did note, however, a possible conflict between the now-unknown cat and Major Biden. The president’s young German Shepard has struggled to adjust to life in the White House. Dr Biden then addressed those concerns, noting that Major’s training included what looks like exposure therapy, but for cats.
“[The Secret Service] Took him to a shelter with cats and he did well, ”Dr Biden said.
Indeed, time will tell how Major and Champ Biden react to their new roommate. We will eagerly await a name and breed for the new first cat, as there is no longer a pressing issue facing our nation.
There has been no cat in the White House since George W. Bush’s presidency, when he and his wife, Laura Bush, brought their black cat, India “Willie” Bush, to Washington. She lived with the Bush family for almost two decades. Before India, Bill and Hillary Clinton had an adopted stray cat, Socks Clinton, which gained some media attention. Will the new Biden cat capture the audience in the same way as previous presidential cats? We’ll see if the new pet, as press secretary Jen Psaki predicted in March, “will break the internet”.
