Happily Wedding, a wedding planning company in California, has opened up a whole new market — cat weddings. In case kitten-themed seating arrangements, feline cake toppers, the “glitter box,” and stationery marked “Furrever” wasn’t enough to make the perfect wedding day for cat-loving couple Kiera and Zach, they were then treated to the surprise arrival of kittens brought in specially to witness their wedding. I hope the cats had fun and didn’t feel too much like props, but if the video is any indication, it looks like their adventure that day was just as epic as the newlyweds’. To support the homeless kitties, Happily asked that anyone looking to adopt contact the Second Hand Souls Animal Rescue and Animal Actors. For cat loving ladies like myself, this ceremony may sound too good to be true, but a day like this can be yours for a cool $25,000. (What, you didn’t just have that laying around for your someday fantasy wedding?) Congrats to the happy couple! [The Gloss]
Shark Week is over, but it lives on in this holy grail of YouTube entertainment, featureing a cat, a baby, America’s favorite week in television, and a Roomba. This is the peak of the internet, friends. It’s only downhill from here. [Laughing Squid]
Cat lady PSA: these Paw Print shoes by Irregular Choice allow you to walk on kitties all day long. The shoes are designed by Dan Sullivan, and in the place of a typical 4-inch heel is a 4-inch smiling cat figurine. Last year, the company sold similar shoes with bunnies, gnomes, and even little Santas serving as heels, but let’s be real, none of those come close to competing with these cat creations. Anyone who owns a pair of these is living the dream as far as I’m concerned, and should probably be my best friend so I can borrow them. [Image via Irregular Choice]
If there is one thing cats hate, it’s water. If there’s two things cats hate, it’s water and Internet censorship.
A group called The Pussycat Riot (not affiliated with the band) is using famous Internet cats to draw attention to world leaders who suppress their peoples’ access to information online. It’s a project launched by Hide My Ass, a for-pay site that allows Internet users to access blocked content from anywhere in the world. Kittehs draw attention to their cause, but also to the part of their site where they sell (very expensive) Vladmir Putin and Kim Jong Un scratching posts and litter boxes featuring the faces of other despotic leaders. Can cats get people who take their freedoms for granted to pay attention to Internet censorship? Who knows. It may not help, but probably couldn’t hurt.
I know the internet is the land of hyperbole, especially when it comes to cats. But for real, everyone, anointing this kitten getting a belly rub as “The Cutest Ever Cat Video On The Internet” seems pretty spot-on to me. I dare you to disagree with me. [Love Meow]
If I were in this cat’s shoes, I can’t promise I wouldn’t do the exact same thing.
