zanzibarAnn and Zanzibar announce engagement

Ann Pellegrini and longtime domestic companion Zanzibar (who uses no last name) have announced their engagement after a whirlwind 14+ year courtship. Zanzibar (left) works from home, where he is designing a new social networking platform (CatNapster). Pellegrini (right) teaches at NYU. They plan an October wedding to allow time for Zanzibar to get through the worst of the shedding season. It will be a deconstructed Cat(h)olic ceremony: Latin liturgy and heavy on the catnip incense. They do not plan to register their union with the state, though Zanzibar does plan to register with Petco. Their one regret is that they did not formalize their partnership à trois, when Zanzibar’s litter-mate Orlando was still alive, thereby hitting all the cultural flash-points (same-sex, polyamourous, incestuous, cross-species).


Jasbir and Nico

Announcing the elopement of Jasbir and Nico (while Nico’s humans, Tavia and Marc, were off cavorting in Croatia).

Jasbir and Nico will continue their interspecies, intergenerational, multi-household, cross-borough, non-monogamous marriage with full blessings from them.

Nan and Mulder on Honeymoom


Nan and Mulder today announced that, after more than 12 years of cohabitation, they made it official in a secret ceremony last week.  They are on honeymoon in an undisclosed location, due to their fear of Scully’s scorn.  Scully, who also cohabits with the two newlyweds, is a well known feline critic of the institution of marriage.  After learning of the wedding, Scully commented, “Shame!”   The newly hitched couple’s only response was from Nan, who noted, “Mulder chose these pink sheets.  I had nothing to do with it.”


Ralph and Shannon

Ralph and Shannon


Ralph and I are happy to announce that we are celebrating our 9th anniversary this year. Our bond has stood the test of time and as well as new additions to our relationship. First Hera, a kitten on the verge of abandonment. Then Mr.Thomas Crackers, who lost his home in a divorce. Next a new human and her diva cat Cassidy. And most recently Mr. Foucault (a dog!). Ralph, thankyou for proposing 9 years ago. Thank you for sticking with me! I love you.

IPhone and Carmelita celebrate

IPhone and Carmelita celebrate


Carmelita Tropicana has announced her engagement to her new white 3Gs iPhone.  After a whirlwind courtship, the two fell in love.  Registration for wedding gifts will be at the Soho Apple Store.

From The Irish Times, July 10, 2009 (HT: Noreen Giffney)

GHANAIAN woman has married her dog because it has qualities she had seen only in her late father.

Emily Mabou (29) of Aburi married the 18-month-old dog in a ceremony attended by a traditional priest and local, curious villagers. Her younger brother David Mabou said her family boycotted the wedding, which they felt was “a stupid step to combat her loneliness.”

But Ms Mabou said: “For so long, I’ve been praying for a life partner who will have all the qualities of my dad. My dad was kind, faithful and loyal to my mum, and he never let her down.
“I’ve been in relationships with so many men here in Togo, and they are all the same – skirt-chasers and cheaters. My dog is kind and loyal to me, and he treats me with so much respect.”

At the ceremony, the priest warned villagers not to mock the wedding, but to “rejoice with her as she has found happiness at last.”

Asked how she intended to raise children with her new husband, Ms Mabou said simply: “We will adopt.”

    Isn’t this love just inspirational? I know it gives me strength to affirm my own feelings for my iPod nano and longtime feline companion Chester.

    My John Henry and I were married. I often referred to him as my husband! We needed no piece of paper to legitimize our human to feline love . He has moved to kitty heaven now. Watching our me and my fabulous kitty house hold.
    Will never be forgotten…

    I am not sure an iPhone qualifies as a pet! But as long as it makes you happy darling – that is all that matters

    Hi …. I’ Indonesian. I’m very interesting to your pics with beloved pets of yours. And your blog is simple and great one.

    What next on this slippery slope? If society continues this way, then a man and a woman might marry, have eight children, and then divorce, all on national television! Or what’s to prevent elected officials from having tax-payer-funded extramarital coitus! We need to bulwark our human-animal traditional relationships, and preserve the god-given order, like artificial insemination of cattle and race horses.

    I am the proud spouse to four sister-wife cats, Olive (a minor), Nellie, Gracie (R.I.P.), and Penguin. Each was sealed to me and to one another in celestial marriage, Gracie after her death. It was difficult sewing their special underwear, as the tail-holes competed with the imperative toward modesty, but a certain flap solved the problem. We are sad that we are unable to conceive thus far, but pray daily that the Lord will someday bless us with a kitten, whom, of course, I will marry on the day of her menarche.

    I am still trying to convince my two cats to take me in as their third. They are so stuck in the whole “paired monogamy” thing. Damn their false consciousness!

    I agree I love to have sex with my dog, Stanley. There is nothing wrong with this act and I believe I should be able to marry him.

    […] And they pretty much have free range of climbing all over me and chewing on my hair. It’s pretty gross. I think I’ll have to join the Freedom to Marry Our Pets Society. […]
