German Mailman Marries His Fat Cat Cecilia

By Robert Paul Reyes


"A German postman has married his obese and asthmatic cat Cecilia, saying he wanted to tie the knot before his elderly furry friend dies, the Bild tabloid reported on Monday.


"Cecilia is such a trusting creature. We cuddle all the time and she has always slept in my bed," said the single Uwe Mitzscherlich, 39, from Possendorf near Dresden in eastern Germany.

Because marrying an animal is illegal, Mitzscherlich paid 300 euros (400 dollars) to a television actress to play officiator in the ceremony, while the groom`s twin brother Erik served as witness.` AFP

A postman meets many people while delivering his mail, you`d think he would have met a nice lady on his route. Maybe they`re all dogs, but getting hitched to a cat is ridiculous.

We all want our fifteen minutes of fame, but couldn`t the mailman have done something less foolish, like setting a record for walking backwards the most miles while wearing high heels and a sports bra?

The wacky postman wore a suit and a top hat, and his feline bride wore a dress. That is ridiculous, who the heck wears a top hat these days?

Let`s hope this marriage doesn`t turn out to be a catastrophe
