Concerning Pickles, The Cat Who Lives In New Zealand’s Hobbiton
As if you needed another reason to visit New Zealand, meet Pickles. She’s basically all Gail Simone has talked about today on Twitter. Simone is visiting Hobbiton, the Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit set tours and experience in NZ and learned an interesting story about this cat. After someone from the set saw a bag thrown from a truck, they discovered it was filled with kittens. Sadly, only one survived, but happily, she was named Pickles and lives a wonderful Hobbity life. “Once a day, Pickles goes down to the Green Dragon Inn to get delicious scraps from the kitchen. It’s the most adorable thing ever,” tweeted Simone, adding, “They are taking pictures of the cat to make a children’s book, ‘Pickles Goes to Hobbiton.’ Happiest cat ever.” One more shot of Pickles after the jump!
Simone suggests we all head to New Zealand to meet Pickles. I’m 100% for this plan of action.
