Willie, aka India the President's cat died on Sunday, at the age of 18. Too bad the cat died, the Bush's had the cat when the girls were nine years old.

So sorry to hear about the Bush's cat, Very beautiful cat. To have a cat live that long, and to have shared its life with the Bush's that long, it had to be hard on them to not have Willie with them anymore. My thoughts are with them. God Bless Willie

Heck, I didn't know the Bushes had a cat, I knew about Barney, but not Willie/India. That is a long time for a cat to live, bet he lived a good one too, lol, if he was in the white house. I'm curious, I wonder if the first pets ever do damage to the walls and furniture while they stay at the White House?

That is a long time for a cat too live. It was a really pretty cat.

I'm sorry to hear that the Bush's cat has passed. That they had a black cat could only help the image of black cats.
