Cat wedding - yes, two cats get married!

The caption to this black-and-white photographic print reads: "Dawn Rodgers officiates at "wedding" of formally attired felines Tigger and Kirby, held by daughters Summer and September". Photograph dated: July 25, 1986. 

It is a non-digital photo. Old-style photo. Some people like to marry their cats. Some people like to marry their cat! I've seen that before :) . But is this an example of humans living their life through their cats?

There is not much to say, is there? It is a bit of fun although I suspect that the participants took it seriously. There is nothing wrong with it if it pleases the people concerned although it is eccentric behaviour. The cats don't know a thing about it. It all goes over their heads in a mysterious blur. I would expect that they were good buddies and the ladies decided that it was a good idea to formalise their relationship. Perhaps they wanted to get married themselves (the humans, I mean!) but sadly had failed and so decided to marry their cats instead. A substitute for the real thing. I am speculating and probably being unkind.
