Vice President Mike Pence Owns an Adorable Rabbit Named Marlon Bundo

Vice President, Mike Pence owns an adorable black-and-white rabbit named Marlon Bundo.

Bundo, along with his cat half-siblings, Oreo and Pickle, now are residents of Washington, D.C.

Oreo and Pickle were carried off the U.S. Air Force passenger jet in the arms of  then Vice President-Elect Mike Pence's wife, Karen, and daughter, Charlotte, but it took two men to transport Marlon Bundo's cage down the plane stairs to a waiting SUV.

Pence tweeted a photo of the family with the pets mid-air, thanking the U.S. Air Force for the ride. Bundo's eyes seemed wide with excitement about his future home.

The bunny isn't the first elected pet with a unique name: Jimmy Carter's daughter Amy had a Siamese cat named Misty Malarky Ying Yang. Herbert Hoover had a dog named Weejie. Benjamin Harrison had two opposums: Mr. Reciprocity and Mr. Protection.

No word on whether Bundo has a plot to get fancier carrots in his food dish once he's in D.C., but it seems likely he made the Pence family an offer they couldn't refuse.
