Some people opt to get married in the presence of their friends and family, while others, like Canadian couple Louise Veronneau and Dominic Husson, choose to say “I do” in the company of feral felines. To each their own, right? The happy couple recently tied the knot at The Cat House of Kings, a six-acre animal sanctuary located in Parlier, California.
So why cats? Turns out, the newlyweds are just as passionate about each other as they are animals — specifically kitties.
“I’m an animal lover, and when I met Dominic, he’s an animal lover,” Veronneau told the Charlotte Observer. “We wanted to do a wedding that reflected our values, our love for animals. And also we’ve asked our relatives, instead of giving us gifts, to send a donation to the sanctuary.”
