“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 CBS show tweeted.

Dr. Biden told a reporter in September about her hopes to get a cat. “Well, I’d love to get a cat. I love having animals around the house,” she told Fox 5’s Angie Goff. The Clintons were the last family to have a cat in the White House.

While campaigning Biden said that he wanted to “bring dogs back to the White House.” And now he is going to!
