BERLIN – A German postman has married his obese and asthmatic cat Cecilia, saying he wanted to tie the knot before his elderly furry friend dies, the Bild tabloid reported on Monday.

"Cecilia is such a trusting creature. We cuddle all the time and she has always slept in my bed," said the single Uwe Mitzscherlich, 39, from Possendorf near Dresden in eastern Germany.

"Our hearts beat as one -- it's unique!"

Because marrying an animal is illegal, Mitzscherlich paid 300 euros (400 dollars) to a television actress to play officiator in the ceremony, while the groom's twin brother Erik served as witness.

The happy couple dressed up for the occasion, Mitzscherlich in a wedding suit and top hat and 15-year-old Cecilia, who loudly miaowed her way through the exchanging of vows, in a white dress.
