Berlin, May 5: What can be termed as the strangest marriages ever, a 39-year-old German postman married his terminally ill pet cat after vets told him that his beloved cat is going to die soon, media reports said.
Uwe Mitzscherlich tied the knot with his overweight pet, Cecilia, who was suffering from asthma and was dying.
According to media reports, Mitzscherlich paid 300 euros to an actress to officiate a fake wedding ceremony, as marriage between an animal and human is illegal in Germany.
Talking about the unusual wedding, Mitzscherlich said that he wanted to marry his pet, who had been his companion for the last 10 years, before it dies from asthma.
"Cecilia is such a trusting creature. We cuddle all the time and she has always slept in my bed," he said.
The actress, Christin-Maria Lohri who officiated the marriage said that she thought that the request was a joke.
"At first I thought it was a joke. But for Mr Mitzscherlich it's a dream come true," she said.
