Dominic Husson and Louise Véronneau both love animals. They wanted to celebrate their wedding with the creatures they love the most — felines.
So the Canadian couple recently flew to Cat House on the Kings, a no-cage, no-kill California cat sanctuary, where they performed a ceremony in front of a few furry guests. About 1,100 of them, to be specific.
“We are both animal lovers, and it shows she’s a great person, and that’s why I wanted to marry her,” Husson told NBC News.
Cat House on the Kings has been home to 24,000 cats and 7,000 over the past 24 years. Husson and Veronneau are the first couple to get married at the sanctuary.
Feline guests are clearly a far superior choice to breathing human ones. No need to buy fancy West Elm tableware when you can simply feed your guests dehydrated fish bones in cups on the floor. You’ll never have to worry about drunk uncles or high-maintenance bridesmaids, when you’ve got a tiny furry pussycat, purring on the mic.
The sanctuary’s founder, Lynea Lattanzio, said the cats responded well to the bride and groom.
There’s no blessing like a kitten blessing.
