Mews and Nips: Woman Married Her Cat To Get Around Landlord’s Pet Restrictions


A London woman recently married her cat in hopes of avoiding rental restrictions which forced her to rehome three previous pets due to landlords who rejected pets. She is facing eviction again despite previous permission from her landlord to have a cat. Anticipating yet another move, the pair got married preemptively so they could stay together regardless of any lease stipulations. “By marrying India, I need any future landlords to know that we come as a package and we cannot be separated under any circumstances as she is as important to me as my children,” Deborah Hodge told LADBible.
