Possendorf, Germany–Yes, it’s really true. Uwe Mitzscherlich has tied the knot with his cat Cecilia. Over the past 10 years, Cecilia has been living in sin with Uwe. Even though she slept in his bed every night, coughed up hair balls and shed all over the place, making her way to the altar just seemed to delude her, giving weight to your mother’s favorite axiom “Why buy the cow when the milk is free?” However, recently Cecilia has fallen ill and Uwe has finally decided to do the right thing and make Cecilia an honest cat by marrying her.

Unfortunately, since marrying cats is illegal in Germany and as far as we know, illegal in most countries, actress Christin-Maria Lohri officiated the ceremony for a mere 300 Euros ($360 US). “It was really beautiful and heart-warming. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house.” She also added, “The reception dinner was particularly elegant. I didn’t know you could prepare tuna in so many ways.”

“It doesn’t matter that our marriage is not recognized by the Republic of Germany,” Mitzscherlich has been reported to say, “I love Cecilia and that’s all that matters.”

The groom looked elegant in his classic black coat and tails. The bride looked also wore black and white and was radiant in a lovely Chantilly lace veil and her own tail.
