She only landed in the White House a few days ago, but Willow the cat is already being recognized with a pawsitively unique honor.

Willow, the tabby cat that President Biden and Jill Biden announced last week they had welcomed into their home, is getting her own bobblehead.

The limited edition bobbleheads of Willow went on sale this week at the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum’s online store.

The rendering of the $25 kitty figures features an image of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in the background, with a photo of the famed feline “inquisitively checking out her surroundings.” The bobbleheads are poised to ship in June.

Two-year-old Willow’s furry first family siblings have also been immortalized as ever-nodding collectibles.

The Bidens’ three German shepherds, Champ — who died last year — Major and Commander, all have bobbleheads in their likenesses.

“It was fun to see the reaction to the adorable pictures of Willow that the Bidens shared on social media last week,” Phil Sklar, the CEO of the Wisconsin-based National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, said in a statement. “Now, everyone will have the opportunity to have a smaller bobblehead version of Willow.”

A White House spokesperson told The Hill last week that Willow is from a farm in Willow Grove, Pa., and that the first lady had grown fond of the green-eyed cat after it jumped on stage and interrupted her while she was speaking during a 2020 campaign stop.
