You WON'T believe the guest list at this wedding...

A few days ago, I wrote a post about a high school kid who loves his cat enough to make her his date for the prom.

Another example of animal lovers making four-legged friends a central part of a special occasion in their lives involves Canadian couple Dominic Husson and Louise Veronneau. The couple flew to California for their wedding, just so they could tie the knot at the state's largest no-cage, no-kill cat sanctuary, Cat House on the Kings.

Both share a deep love for felines, and their guest list included over 1,100 of the sanctuary's cats.

Since its founding, the sanctuary has helped find homes for over 20,000 cats and 7,000 dogs.

Wow. And to think that I call myself a cat lover! This couple takes their passion for animals to a whole new level.

While some people might see the couple's move as unusual, I commend them for what they did. Aside from the fact that they had every right to plan the wedding as they wished, they found a way to integrate a cause about which they're both passionate into the event.

Chances are, the positive press generated by this event will boost pet adoptions at the sanctuary in the coming months.

I've been looking to adopt a cat myself, and it's feel-good stories like this that make me more eager to give a kitty a loving home.

What's your take on what this couple did? Do you think they went overboard?
