@sofiekitty:  I love it!!!!!!!!! I love it all! That ribbon is amazing! It would look puurrrfect on your bouquet!

I’m a bit of a crazy cat lady too, but my Fiance is most definitely not! We have a cat togther that I love and I’m sad she won’t get to be there on our wedding day, so i got one of those tiny frames to hang from my bouquet to have her “with” me. ~_~

We are cat people too. Our cake topper had our cats on it. I also wanted to name signature drinks after our cats, but I just didn’t have time to finish it. I like the vintage look of your cat decor, it’s really cute!

@sofiekitty:  That pic I just posted IS the invite! The details were on the back. It was a postcard…

@sofiekitty:  The costumes were photoshopped in that pic, but we do also (the shame of it) have an actual, real, kitty tux and a wedding dress for them to wear for the thank you cards (!). We had a trial run where we tried them on the “bride” and she couldn’t care less, but the “groom” was quite upset and went and hid under the table, looking out with sad eyes! Then I felt bad and took it off him.

There is no way we could have dressed up the minister cat without losing a hand, or at least a finger. She’s far less passive and trusting!

@sofiekitty:  Yeah, I will do. I don’t know if I can put my boy cat through that again though. He’s really trusting, and he let us put the costume on, which really was impressive. It had armholes and buttons and everything and he let us do him up because he trusted us. As soon as we put him down though, it was clear that he didn’t like it, and he started walking backwards to get out of it and then went and hid when he realised he couldn’t. Maybe it sounds odd, but I sort of feel that we are betraying his trust by dressing him up. He would let us do it again… but I feel like we are taking advantage of his love and his good nature! So we may have to rethink the thank you cards unless that changes. But we’ll see.

I have the photographer coming over AM on the day and she is setting up her own business for both weddings and pet photography, so I said she could shoot the cats and use the images for promo purposes. Maybe we’ll use one of those… or maybe one with me in my dress, all snuggled up with the cats!

I love all of it! My fiancé wants our cat to be the ring bearer, but I think that’s going to take quite a bit of training. 🙂

I found a statue of a tabby cat sitting next to a wedding cake topped with a kitty b & g for a few bucks at Goodwill. As a crazy cat couple, I can safely say this is definitely making an appearance SOMEWHERE! Hahaha.

If I thought my cat would cooperate, I would use my social kitty as a kitty ringbearer with our rings attached to a collar. But, pfft, just try to put a leash on her harness and get her to come anywhere with you. The moment she steps foot outside she goes where she WANTS to go, the leash is just so she doesn’t run off.

@sofiekitty:  Well, two of our three were ex feral cats. I found one in an area used for burning rubbish when she was 3 weeks old, and the other one just followed me everywhere until I took him in. Those are the “bride” and “groom” cats… and they are by far the most trusting!

In the past few days, I’ve had three separate people knock on my door about boy cat. Apparently, whenever I leave the house then he has been bothering other people/neighbours and asking for cuddles, so they were worried that he was lost and asking for help to get home, and they read his tags and dropped him off. I had to say “no… he’s just an ingraciating little beast!”. That cat wants cuddles 24/7. I’ve created a monster…

(PS And yes, I know that vet advice differs between the UK and US. UK cats are usually indoor/outdoor, with a cat flap, as mine are).
