The Bidens are also proud dog owners of two German shepherds, Champ and Major
The Bidens are set to bring a feline companion with them to the White House in January 2021.
President-elect Joe Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, confirmed to CBS Sunday Morning that they will be getting a cat when they move to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington D.C., along with their two German shepherds, Major and Champ.
“President-elect @JoeBiden and his wife @DrBiden won’t just be bringing their German shepherds, Major and Champ to the White House. The Bidens tell us exclusively that soon they’ll be joined by a cat,” the show tweeted on Friday.
The former second lady, 69, teased in September that the soon-to-be first family would welcome a cat into their home after the former vice president, 78, is inaugurated next year.
“Well, I’d love to get a cat. I love having animals around the house,” she told Fox 5’s Angie Goff.
For the first time in four years, dogs are also heading back to the White House thanks to the Bidens, who are proud owners of German shepherds Champ and Major.
Major — who was adopted from the Delaware Humane Association in November 2018, 10 years after the couple welcomed Champ — will also make history as the first shelter dog to live at the White House, according to NBC News.
