@MissBoPeep: I watched a few people on Youtube walk their cats a few years ago… Once we adopted our cats I soon realized it was unfair to keep them strickly indoors, but because we live in a high traffic area I decided to compromise and train them to walk outside with me on a leash and be 100% safe from ever getting hit by a car.
They caught on fast and love their walks!

As others have said, people have their dogs in their e-pics all the time! I don’t see why it would be any weirder to have cats.

That’s exactly why we trained ours. 🙂 He was an outdoor kitty before we adopted him, but where we live it’s not safe for him to be outside, so we take him for walks on his leash and he loves it!

I love my cat but she never cooperates in pictures so maybe take a few of just you and your fiance.

@kaybee: We made them sit on our laps for our wicked funny Christmas cards last year. It was difficult to get them to focus, but doable. I was only thinking of having them in a handfull of photos, then the remainder just my Fiance and I.

I personally am not a fan of pets in engagement pics.. but since people get away with having dogs, I see no reason why you cant use your cats.
Edited to add- I know people say their pets are part of the family, but mom and dad are family too but you dont include them in your e-shoot

I don’t like animals in engagement pics. I don’t know why, it just seems a little “Best in Show” to me.

If you consider them family I don’t see any reason not to have them in the photo shoot.
The only thing I would be worried about is if your photographer is allergic to cats. If they are allergic they can take an allegra before. I am allergic and whenever people tell me there will be cats I really appreciate it so I can prepare.

awwww, kitties!!!!! I have a soft spot for kitties. oh, heck, who am I kidding? I love animals. 🙂 I even have a bunny!
I say go for it, if you think you can get them to co-operate. I always stand by the saying: You don’t own the cat, the cat owns you.
So if you can coax the dynamic duo into posing with you two, go for it!!! They look so sweet and fun. 🙂
