Dominic & Louise share their special day with a plethora of pussy cats…

Animal lovers Dominic Husson and Louise Véronneau brought a new meaning to term “pet friendly” when they invited 1,000 cats to their Wedding.

The Canadian couple decided to get married at cat sanctuary and adoption centre Cat House On The King as it was their love of animals that brought them together.

“We are animal lovers, the two of us, and we wanted to make this our special day,” Bride Louise told CBS 47.

Hubby Dominic Husson told NBC News: ”We are both animal lovers, and it shows she's a great person, and that's why I wanted to marry her"

The wedding was the first to be held at the cat sanctuary; where it’s founder, Lynea Lattanzio, also got ordained so she could legally marry the couple with the feline onlookers!

The happy cat couple have requested that, instead of traditional wedding gifts, that any donations be made to the sanctuary!

What a purrr-fect end to a purr-fect day! Congrats to Louise & Dominic from BondiVet.com!

Hip Surgery for rescued puppy

2 weeks ago whilst we were in Fiji we rescued an abandoned puppy that we estimate is about 3 months old. She was starving, filthy, covered in ticks and could barely stand or walk. We fed her, washed her, removed all ticks and just gave her love. We called her Pretzel as she was so skinny when we found her that all her bones were sticking out and her hip bones looked like a big twisted pretzel and her long skinny legs looked like Pretzel sticks. Our intention was to find her a home in Fiji but after a week or so she had gained weight, but we noticed that her left hip bone was still protruding and that when she walked we noticed that her left back foot turned out slightly. Also, when she ran she would use both back legs together and hop like a bunny. We took her to an animal shelter in Fiji called Animals Fiji and they examined her and advised that they thought it might be dislocated. They X-rayed her and then sedated her to try and manipulate the bone back into the socket. This was unsuccessful. The vet advised that it appeared that the end of the bone where the ball should be round was malformed either from a trauma/injury when young or by birth. He advised that he does not have the equipment in Fiji to treat her properly and that she would need surgery to correct the bone and to tighten the ligaments to her support her leg. We are exporting her to Australia on the 7th of March and are trying to raise some funds to assist us. We are hoping that you can assistance to find a Vet in Melbourne that could assist with the operation at a reasonable price.
