Wedded Hiss: Gay Marriage Gets Feline-Friendly

While humans continue to wrestle with the “controversial” idea of allowing two people who love each other to legally wed, us animals are way more progressive, and we cats are hitting the altar. My long-time partner, Solomon, and I have decided to take the plunge and get married. It may sound like legally committing yourself to another cat for the rest of eternity would be intimidating, but for us, it’s a simple progression of our relationship. We met at Ollie’s Place, a cat-adoption center in New York City, and it was love at first paw scratch.

What first drew me to Solomon was his rich auburn coat of fur. MEEEOWWW! For a shelter full of unwanted cats, there were plenty of fugs, let me tell you.  But of course, it wasn’t just his handsome appearance that made him stand out from the feline crowd. Solomon is the most outgoing and friendly soul I ever met, and since cats have a somewhat accurate reputation for being a little closed off and cold, it was a refreshing change. I’m much more reserved, and I think my quieter demeanor provides a subtle balance between us. Over time, we grew closer and closer, until we were practically drinking out of the same water bowl. He’s not only my lover, he’s my best friend, and I can’t wait to spend the next nine lives together.

All are invited to our wedding, which will take place Jan. 27th at Ollie’s Danny & Eddie’s.

    We were hoping for wedded bliss between Gus and Brogan, but he sadly moved away. Way to be progressive, Bruno and Solomon!

      Awww that is sad! Poor Gus. We really want our NYC blogger to take a half day and attend the wedding. Not sure how that would go over at work though.
