  • poll: Good idea?

    Yes

    No, its too complicated

    No, if shes asking for dancing and strippers before this wont be "wild" enough

    Maybe, I have an idea to make it better (explain)

    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.

    IveBeenDreaming:  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.

    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.

    IveBeenDreaming:  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?
