I Hope This ‘Marriage’ Wasn’t Consummated!
German man ‘marries’ his dying cat
A German man has unofficially married his cat after the animal fell ill and vets told him it might not live much longer, Bild newspaper reports.
It says Uwe Mitzscherlich, 39, paid an actress 300 euros (£260,$395) to officiate at the ceremony, as marrying an animal is illegal in Germany.
Mr Mitzscherlich said he had wanted to tie the knot before his asthmatic cat Cecilia died.
The cat and groom have lived together for 10 years.
“Cecilia is such a trusting creature. We cuddle all the time and she has always slept in my bed,” Mr Mitzscherlich, a postman from the eastern town of Possendorf, told Bild.
Actress Christin-Maria Lohri, who officiated the ceremony, was quoted as saying: “At first I thought it was a joke. But for Mr Mitzscherlich it’s a dream come true”.
Well, I guess that some of the conservative fundamentalists who were concerned that if we let the ‘ghays’ get married it would lead to bestiality will have a field day with this one… I’m not really too concerned about that.
But dude? You married your cat! Really?
“But for Mr Mitzscherlich it’s a dream come true”… Wow.
I think we may have a major league example of cathexis here. When you marry your cat as a “dream come true” you have taken cathecting to a level where the rest of us just sit back and just say, “damn!”
Digression: the domestic house cat is not mentioned in the Bible… and now they are marrying people!
