This makes more sense than a penis beaker.

Holy crap that's an awesome looking cat.

See, I get ideas like this, but then I realize in a month photoshopping cats into picks of weddings will feel like work.

Despite the photoshopping, I still get nervous on those with low ceiling lamps or, god forbid, fans.

Like I totally can imagine the single ladies catching the cat thrown in mid-air but you put in large sconces and it's a bridge too far.

I came in to post about that one too. That's a pretty hefty kitty and I don't see how the bride was making the toss one-handed.

It could be worse...they could be juggling the cats.

Okay, this is very silly.

Yeah, they should just be putting them in their scanners, instead.

I enjoy a nice cat blanket-toss as much as the next person. But that stuff looks dangerous for the onlookers.

So let's be clear here: these are photoshopped.These brides may have swung the cat around, but nobody threw a cat in lieu of a floral bouquet at their wedding.

This makes so much more sense than that blah blah blah government shutdown thread.

I find these pictures wonderful and would just like a tumblr of stills of these brides throwing something you can't see.

I can't tell if the slapdash sh00ping adds to the charm or gives me the howling fantods.

These are all taken a moment too early. I want to see the pictures of descending cats, claws extended, shredding into the crowd at face level.

Reminds me of how my dad would tell me that he and his brother would play catch with a live, very displeased chicken. They always, er, chickened out of actually catching the thing when thrown.
posted by Space Coyote at 4:30 PM on October 9, 2013


Holy shit there is so much hopefullness in the faces of the potential catchers. Who knew cats were so much fun to catch.

Is there a chance the cat could bend?

I was pretty dumb as a kid. If I'd seen this, I'd have tried it. Please make sure the kids you know are informed that one shouldn't throw cats, even if you're not sure whether they've seen this.

(I would never do this now, but I did try to put a cat in a deep swimming pool to see whether it could swim. I was pretty dumb, with high test scores. Kids are dumb. Please be careful with this kind of thing)

(If anyone knows the owner of this site, please ask him or her to put up a disclaimer. There are kids everywhere on the Internet).

This should be a new tradition.

I'd go to a lot more weddings if this were a thing.
posted by goethean at 8:08 PM on October 9, 2013 [1 favorite]


We always used to call that thing where you pick up a whole litter of kittens at once a "cat bouquet." And we used to call that thing where you hold all four of a cat's paws while he's sleeping on his side a "paw bouquet." So I guess this is the natural next step.

At the end of the wedding, instead of rice or birdseed or confetti, the guests could shower the happy couple with dry Meow Mix.

As soon as I posted this, I realized I missed a golden opportunity for some primo pun action.

Okay it's partly because I'm up really late but this thread and the images there made me laugh so hard I had to lay down and breathe and I cried a little and I'm amazed I didn't wake up Mr NoraReed in the other room

I really want this to get to mainstream wedding sites so people can be outraged at this terrible new wedding tradition

OMG, I didn't know that was a meme. I'm LOLing so hard over here. Okay, now I get it; the bride just had to aim the kitty in the right direction.
