Whatever you think of Mike Pence as Vice-President of the United States, you have to at least acknowledge his cat Pickles. Pickles had been part of the Pence family for 16 years but unfortunately passed away.

Orea, the Pence family’s other cat, had died earlier at the age of 13 years. Obviously it’s hard for any family to lose a beloved pet but at least Pickles had a good life moving into Washington DC. Judging from the way most politicians act, Pickles is probably the most intelligent and mature of them all.
