After a painful breakup, a woman decided to marry her cats.
 
48-year-old web designer Barbarella Buchner, after her seven-year relationship ended, says she found happiness, companionship and emotional fulfilment with her cats.

Barbarella thinks she's found two soulmates in the form of her male moggies, Spider and Lugosi.

Her devotion to them is so strong that 10 years ago she even married them in an online ceremony.

"They're the loves of my life," she claims. "I have no regrets and I don't care what people say."

Barbarella – who now lives in Lanzarote – has had a few long-term relationships with men, but never wanted to marry.

She explains, "I didn't know if I had it in me to be a wife. Some women are built to clean up after their men, and I'm not like that. But I never minded being my cats' servants. I'm not a submissive person but I'll do anything for Lugosi and Spider."



Barbarella says the cats were a comfort to her after her most serious relationship with her boyfriend of seven years broke down.

"It was so painful breaking up with him. I cried for weeks after we split up, but the cats really helped me through the process. I would cry into Lugosi and Spider's fur. They were on the sofa with me all the time and I felt calm.

"After my boyfriend left, Spider and Lugosi were still there for me, helping me get through the separation anxiety and feelings of sadness. I have loved and lived with a couple of partners before but I realised that my love for my fur babies is so much deeper than anything I have felt for a human."

In 2004, Barbarella decided to make their love official and looked into ways to marry her cats. She found a website called Marryyourpet.com.

"Marrying Lugosi and Spider was something I had to do, for myself," she says. "Some people may call me a bigamist for marrying two cats or even call our marriage incest because they're brothers. But I've never been one to care about what other people say or think, especially when it has anything to do with my cats and the unusual relationship I have with them.

"Obviously I don't have sex with my cats. It's just pure, spiritual, unconditional love on both sides, as simple as that."
