President-elect Joe Biden will have to bring a divided country together when he steps into the White House.

He’s starting with the pets.

Biden and future first lady Jill Biden will bring a cat into the White House along with German shepherds Champ and Major.

“And now some breaking news,” anchor Jane Pauley announced on the “CBS Sunday Morning” Instagram page Sunday. “President-elect Joe Biden and his wife Dr. Jill Biden 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.”

No specifics on the new, White House-bound feline were revealed.

The news comes as the 78-year-old president-elect slipped and twisted his ankle on Sunday, coincidentally (we think) while playing with Major.

“Out of an abundance of caution, he will be examined this afternoon by an orthopedist,” Biden’s team told reporters.

Jill Biden had already signaled the cat move during a pet portion of a pre-election Fox interview saying, ”Well, I’d love to get a cat. I love having animals around the house.”
