Presidential Cats, part 2
Even though my leanings are far left, I'm bipartisan in my cat affections, so I have to share with you all India, one of the pets of George W. and Laura Bush while they were in the White House. The family named her after the former Texas Ranger baseball player, Ruben Sierra, who was called "El Indio." Reportedly, "She likes to hide from her owners. Her favorite place to nap is under the bed and her favorite food is tuna-flavored kitty treats." Somehow India also got the nickname "Willie" - go figure.
Here are two photos of India posing in the West Garden Room of the White House - on a garden bench and with a plant.
