Pickle the Cat has passed away, though you may know her better as one of Vice President Mike Pence’s family pets.

The current live-ins at the White House may not have any pets for us to ooh and ahh over, but that can’t be said for the Second Family.

Vice President Mike Pence and his family have a houseful of pets, and just recently mourned the loss of their cat Oreo, who passed away in June. Now, they’ve shared more sad news.

The Vice President’s wife, Karen, tweeted that their 16-year-old cat Pickle had also passed, leaving the family missing their very chatty and sweet kitty. The orange and white cat received a touching tribute from her ‘little brother’ Marlon Bundo.

“Bundo” is Charlotte Pence’s pet rabbit, and has his own book deal and Instagram. He wrote, “Rest In Peace, big sis, until we meet again,” on his Insta, and joins the rest of the Pence family pets as they miss their feline friend.

I was so blessed to have Pickle as a big sister for the past five years. She held my hand and guided me as we moved to a different state and started a whole new life together with our family. Rest In Peace, big sis, until we meet again. And give Oreo and Maverick a big hug from me! ❤️ – 🐰

The Pence family also is home to an adorable Australian shepherd puppy named Harley and another cat, Hazel, a gray tabby.
