Man Marries Cat After Vets Say The Animal Is Dying

May 4, 2010

Germany (ChattahBox) – A man has unofficially married his cat after being told that the animal was dying.

Marrying an animal is illegal in Germany, as in most countries, and so he could not have an official ceremony with a priest or justice of the peace.

Instead, he paid 300 euros ($395 USD) for an actress to perform in a wedding and ”officiate’.

“At first I thought it was a joke. But for Mr Mitzscherlich it’s a dream come true,” the actress, named by the BBC as Christin-Maria Lohri, said.

Uwe Mitzscherlich is a 39-year-old postal worker from Possendorf, and he says he had lived with his cat, Cecilia, for ten years.
