Pence family cat Oreo passes away

snip

Second lady Karen Pence tweeted photos of the family pet, adding, "Rest in peace Oreo. You touched a lot of hearts in your little life." The photos included shots of the Vice President in a tuxedo holding the black-and-white feline, who moved with the family to the vice president's residence on the grounds of the Naval Observatory after the election.

An aide to the vice president said Oreo was 13 years old and was especially endeared to the Pence's youngest daughter, Audrey, who is 23.

In a White House absent of pets and animals, the second family has filled the void with several family pets, including a bunny, Marlon Bundo, which is also black and white and has garnered a national following and even appeared at official White House events.

1. OK, the fact that he likes cats makes me loathe Pence a little less. But only a little.

Trump, however, has no pets (and that's a good thing for any potential pets). There's something wrong with people who don't like animals.

4. I feel badly for them for the moment

Sad for them that their cat passed away
You're right about trump. Hate to see what he'd do to an animal in his care
At least the Pences like animals. That is something

7. Back in December someone offered Trump a goldendoodle puppy:

"President-elect Donald Trump has yet another “cabinet member” to nominate: first pet.

That role may soon be filled by an adorable 9-week-old goldendoodle (golden retriever/poodle designer hybrid) puppy named Patton, according to The Washington Post.

Lois Pope, a Trump booster from Florida, says she has offered to gift the puppy to Trump, and she’s confident the little doodle will canoodle with the next president soon enough. “I’m sure,” she told the Post.

“He said, ‘Go over there and show it to Barron,’” Pope recounts of her Thanksgiving weekend conversation with Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago home in Florida. Barron is Trump’s 10-year-old son with wife Melania. A “big smile came over” the boy’s face, Pope says."

But the puppy never made it to the WH or to Trump Tower (fortunately for the puppy). http://www.inquisitr.com/3899657/barron-trump-not-getting-goldendoodle-puppy-after-all-philanthropist-withdraws-offer-of-a-dog-to-trumps-white-house/

Trump said he was too busy to take care of a dog.

10. ...too busy to take care of a dog

Certainly not because of presidenting
I hear being a useless twit does take a lot of time

5. First good thing about Pence that I've learned.

I know losing a pet hurts & I am sorry for them.

6. I shall omit any nasty comment

I love cats and dogs and shall not use the passing of a loved pet to attack any loathsome creature occupying space in the current administration, no matter how vile.

11. My thoughts are with them...loosing a furry baby is just devastating...

Hey, at least they have/had a pet. I wonder if dt has EVER in his entire life had a critter! My guess is no....I mean when I think of his sons who kill exotic animals for fun it just make me sick!!!!!
