Second lady Karen Pence said Thursday that one of their cats, Pickle, has died.
“We will all miss Pickle, our very chatty, sweet kitty of 16 years,” Karen Pence tweeted. Vice President Mike Pence retweeted it from his official @VP Twitter account.
The Pences are known as a pet family, famously moving them all into the Naval Observatory official residence when Vice President Mike Pence took office. The move reportedly "embarrassed" President Trump, who thought it was "low class."
Oreo, another family cat, died in June at age 13. The Pences soon got a new dog and cat, named Harley and Hazel.
The most famous Pence family pet, rabbit and Instagram star Marlon Bundo, is the starring character in a forthcoming children's book, written and illustrated by Karen Pence and daughter Charlotte.
