Meet The Ultimate Cat Lady Who Married Her Two Cats
People can get attached to their pets almost as much, or exactly as much they can get attached to another human being. Everyone who’s ever owned a dog or a cat can testify to that. Not many people, however, go as far as to actually marry their pets, as this one British lady did.
Barbarella Buchner has been married to her two cats, Spider and Lugosi, for 11 years now. The knot was tied on January 9, 2004, and, according to Buchner, married life is going just great.
As Buchner told the UK newspaper The Mirror¸she was fresh out of a seven-year relationship (with a human) when she decided to marry her two devoted feline companions, whom she had adopted from a shelter several years before that. Since then, the three have been living a quiet, domestic life, not bothering anyone.
Buchner did explain a couple of things for the press, when they asked her about the details of her marriage. First of all, she says that the marriage is in no way official (duh!) and that there was no ceremony, party, little tuxedos for the cats, or a gown for the bride. None of that – in fact, the whole thing was done online, through a website that gives marriage certificates to interspecies couples.
When asked about a possible sexual aspect to the marriage, Barbarella was grossed out and said that she may be a little eccentric, but she is not a psycho. She insists that Lugosi and Spider are her companions, not her boyfriends, and that the marriage was something she did just for fun.
