I posted a little while ago about having a friend who wants me to plan a wild party for her involving either “going clubbing” or hiring a male stripper. My guess is that she wants those things because thats what she sees happen on TV and in movies, but it just wouldn’t work because most of her bridesmaids would hate that and most of us (including the Bride) could be kicked out of school or lose financial aid money because of the lifestyle agreement we signed at the university we attend.
ANYways, my boyfriend was trying to help me figure out a more tame idea that she would still love. She REALLY likes cats, so we were thinking maybe we could arragne for a slumber party type set up where (for at least part of the party) there would be some kittens she and the other bridesmaids could play with. We know she would LOVE that, but I don’t know if the idea is very practical. At school they rented puppies for a stress-party once, and I was wondering if there was a way to go about renting kittens too. Or would I have to post an ad on Creigslist? The party will probably be the night before the wedding so another issue would be making sure the cats were returned in time.

Here’s how to make it easy. Volunteer at an animal shelter. Kittens and cats galore.

Cats and especially kittens are sensitive animals which can’t just be shipped around strange places and people for a few hours. When a cat is introduced to a new space it’s very threatening for them with new smells, noices and of course people, it can take a cat weeks or months so stop hiding under a sofa in a new place and be relaxed enough to want cuddles. I know the idea comes from a good place, but this is living beings and they can’t just be rented for your enjoyment.

It honestly sounds like she wants something a little more risky then Kittens… What about a Pole dancing Party.

As much as I LOVE kittens and cats, this isn’t really a feasible option due to cats temperaments. KittyNoire
is right, some cats take a long time to adjust to new surroundings. If you want to do something involving them, I would go to your local animal shelter and give the homeless kitties some love.

what if we went to the kittens instead of bringing them to a strange place?

Call the local animal shelter and see if you can arrange to volunteer as a group for a day.

Cats really don’t like abrupt changes in their environment, including random new people showing up at their house and trying to play with them. Shelters don’t need one-day volunteers; you’ll tie up an experienced volunteer or employee for a big chunk of the day just being shown what to do. This is a really impractical idea (not to mention really inconsiderate of the animals– they’re live animals and not props). Back to the drawing board please! How about a nice spa day? Are there any wineries or breweries near your city? You could hire a limo and take a tour. Zip lining?

Ok here’s a night she might like
Rent a limo bus with stripper pole, stocked with booze and some really good dance tunes to hook up to Limo Speaker System (all night service)
Stop 1 Glam Girl Photo Shoot Book a photo studio and have Naughty girl photo’s for her fiance and some great group shots of girls out on the town
Back to Limo and drinks
Stop 2 Dinner at a local winery with wine tasting and tour
Back to limo and drinks
Stop 3 Pole Dance Class (one that allows booze)
Back to Limo and Drinks Practice the moves
Stop 4 Casino
Back to Limo and drinks
Stop 5 Night Club
Back to Limo and drinks (Home)
Please do not do this the night before the wedding. Plan this the Saturday before.
DO NOT take your girlfiend out the NIGHT BEFORE her wedding. Unless you hate her and want to ruin her wedding

I agree with PPs who have suggested volunteering for a day. If that won’t work then I don’t see how this can be executed in an ethical way.
But then again using animals as props doesn’t really gel with me and I’m not even a fan of those cat cafes even though heaps of people don’t seem to have a problem with them.
Maybe there is a petting zoo which you can visit before some drinks and nibbles somewhere? Or hire a topless waiter who can dress as a cat lol

I would go over some more options with the bride. You’re assuming she doesn’t want something fun and crazy but maybe she really does. Going to volunteer at a shelter as a group is a fantastic idea, but I’d try to get a better feel for what it is she really wants. Going clubbing sounds pretty tame actually.

Okay people suggesting things like pole dancing and drinking clearly didn’t read the whole question. Also I don’t have any control over the date of the party.

kittens are not playthings to be used for entertainment. They are living creatures which need gentle, loving care. Have a heart and scrap this terrible idea.
As pp has said, how about volunteering for the day at an animal shelter?
