This pair of vets filled their wedding with rescue kittens

This pair of vets filled their wedding with rescue kittens


Written by Katie Byrne


Yes it was adorable...

 

Brace yourself for some serious cute - and also a bit of 'ooh - could we do that for our wedding?', too.

Michele Bansboll and Nick Anderson met at vet school, where they bonded over a mutual love of cats. After both becoming vets, they adopted a pair of cats - the brilliantly named Bam-Bam and Wiggles - and spent a significant chunk of their spare time volunteering at local animal rescue centre, Divine Feline, in Colardo. 

When it came to planning their wedding, the big-hearted couple decided they wanted to do something to help raise awareness for Divine Feline. And how did they do it? By borrowing two of the foundation's teeniest-tinest residents: a pair of kittens called Jeeves and Houdini.

And happily enough for the rest of the world, the celebration was perfectly captured by photographer Autumn Cutaia.

*Incoming cute warning*

As well as evoking endless 'awws' from the couple's wedding guests, the presence of the two kittens also helped raise awareness for the charity.

Speaking to The Huffington Post, newlywed Michele commented: "Everyone in the bridal party was freezing since we had been standing outside without jackets for a while and we told them all to wait for one more surprise and then we brought out the kittens".

Michele continued: "I think everyone’s voice jumped up an octave when they saw the cuteness overload and no one cared about being cold anymore".

In fact, guests fell so head-over-heels for the kittens that 'one of the groomsmen was even reluctant to go back inside when we were done with group photos because he wanted to hold [the kittens]!'
