Photos posted to Twitter by the first lady show a gray-and-white-striped mascot wandering in the magnificence of the presidential red carpet.
This is mild, if not friendly, news the White House may need in these days of tension with Russia, surging inflation and contagion from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Willow has serious political skills: At the age of two, a cat bred in Pennsylvania, she was Biden’s starting point for the upcoming 2020 presidential election. She was first seen that same year, when she jumped on stage as the future first lady in the campaign.
“Willow has made a huge impression” on President Biden, said the first lady’s press secretary, Michael Larosa. Seeing the direct link between them, the breeder learned that Willow belonged to Dr. Biden. “Willow rests in the White House with her favorite toys, fun, and plenty of room to explore and explore,” he added.
Biden, the college professor, named the cat in honor of her hometown of Willow Grove.
The Bidens have always been known to be dog owners, champions and pioneers. However, the first died in 2021, and the second was living with the couple’s family members due to alleged incidents of biting in the White House. Then the couple adopted another dog in December, the leader, the German Shepherd.
