Those hoping for a cat to return to the White House will have to wait a little longer, according to First Lady Jill Biden.
In her first newspaper interview since her husband was sworn in in January, the first lady revealed that the family cat lives with a foster family and has not yet moved into the White House.
âThe cat is always hosted by someone who loves the cat,â she said. The New York Times. “I don’t even know if I can get the cat back at this point.”
One of the family’s first rescue dogs, Major, made the cat’s integration a “problem,” Biden said.
Major bit several Secret Service agents in what the White House vaguely described as “biting incidents” in minimal detail. The German Shepherd has since received “extra training” to help him adjust to the added stress and hyper-surveillance of White House life.
The other Bidens dog, Champ, died at the age of 13 in June.
There has been no presidential chat in the White House since India Bush in the early 2000s.
Former President Donald Trump did not bring any pets to Washington during his four years in office.
The only other White House cat in recent memory was Socks Clinton, who has been the subject of several emblematic photos taken during his stay in the White House.
