Robert: Woman marries cat to spite her landlord

A woman in England has married her cat in a civil ceremony as a way to prevent her landlord from making her get rid of the feline.
Deborah Hodge says she has had to re-home three animals over the years due to her landlord’s “no pets” policy. Fearing she will have to say goodbye to her 5 year old cat, India, Hodge concocted a plan to become legally tied to the animal in hopes it’ll prove to her landlord how much her pet means to her.
“I can’t be without India. She is fundamentally the most important thing in my life after my children. By marrying India, I need any future landlords to know that we come as a package and we cannot be separated under any circumstances as she is as important to me as the children.”
The ceremony was officiated by a friend who is legally ordained, and witnessed by some of Deborah’s closest friends.
