The Purr-fect Place for a Wedding
The ceremony was officiated by the cat sanctuary's founder, Lynea Lattanzio, and attended by the 1,100 cats in residence. The cats are used to interactions with visitors and were not at all apprehensive about being the stars of the ceremony. And no, some occasional butt-licking didn't ruin the ceremonies.
"They are so used to people coming through, that they just enjoy the attention that they get," Lattanzio said. In lieu of gifts, the newlyweds asked friends and family to donate to The Cat House on the Kings.
The sanctuary, considered the largest kitty sanctuary in the U.S, is a 12-acre plot of land surrounded by fencing. Since its founding 24 years ago, the haven has provided a permanent home to more than 24,000 cats and 7,000 dogs. In addition, the nonprofit shelter is the largest cage free, no-kill cat sanctuary in North America.
Hope the story of this couple's wedding would inspire other like-minded people and generate more attention for the shelter.
