Canadian Couple Celebrates Their Wedding with 1,100 Cats….Wow!
A Canadian couple decided to share the most sacred day of their lives with 1,100 cats at a cat sanctuary in Parlier, California.
Dominic Husson and Louise Véronneau are both cat lovers, who met in Quebec, Montreal. After dating for several years they decided to get married at the place they had fallen in love with – the Cat House on the Kings, a cage free, no-kill cat sanctuary.
“We are both animal lovers. She’s a great person, and that’s why I wanted to marry her,” Husson told KSEE24 News.
The couple has a very special spot in their hearts for cats. Véronneau had visited the sanctuary back in 2012 and was completely wowed by the rescue work Lynea Lattanzio, founder of the cat sanctuary, and her team did for the cats there. It was a dream come true, that they could share their wedding day with these cats they have grown so fond of.
“Cat House on the Kings kitties follow Lynea and visitors everywhere. One white kitty even followed the bride as she walked from the Senior House down to the bench by the river where they were married,” Harvie Schreiber of the Cat House of the Kings, told Love Meow.
“Lynea Lattanzio is like the Pied Piper for cats. They know her and she has a following of kitties wherever she is on the 12-acre property!”
“During the ceremony, the kitties either watched, or were busily rubbing up against legs for attention – Lynea’s legs, the bride and groom’s legs, their photographer’s legs, the cameramen’s legs, staff legs, etc! They always want to be part of what’s going on. They are curious and nosy!” Schreiber told Love Meow.
“Many people have music for their wedding. In this case, it was the peaceful sound of wind in the trees, the sound of water flowing down the Kings River, and the wonderful ‘music’ of kitty purrs!”
Sounds like a pretty purrfect day! Share with friends!
