Cute, but Who Writes the Thank-You Notes?
So went the largely overlooked nuptials of Poison Ivy and Lala, a couple of California cats of no great pedigree. The ceremony, which took place at Dawn Rogers' home in Riverside, Calif., cost $35, including tiny tie-on hats for bride and groom. Rogers, 52, got into the pet-wedding business about five years ago, after her granddaughter, Tawni, then 6, asked her why animals could have babies and not be married. Since acquiring a mail-order minister's license from the Universal Life Church, Rogers has officiated at 17 ceremonies. Animals must not be in heat or belong to separate species. (She was once asked to hitch a snake and a rat just before the rat became the snake's dinner.) So far, she says, she's had a 100 percent record of good marriages. There haven't been any annulment requests. Not one. Not even from Sunday the mare, who was married to Blue the gelding.
