Introducing Willow, the First Cat of the White House
Join our petition to have the National Anthem amended to “one nation, under Willow.”
Your pet wants you to read our newsletter. (Then give them a treat.)
The Biden family has a newly adopted Tabby, whom they’ve named Willow after Jill Biden’s hometown of Willow Grove, Pennsylvania. When the first lady was on the campaign trail back in 2020, Willow hopped on stage, effectively interrupting one of her speeches at a local farm. It’s said that Willow’s previous owner knew she belonged with the FLOTUS and her family after witnessing the instant connection they shared during that special encounter. There hasn’t been a cat in the White House since President Bush’s cat, India, back in 2001. We couldn’t be more elated to welcome Willow as our new First Cat and will promptly be petitioning to have the National Anthem amended to “one nation, under Willow.”
