Ever wondered if a cat could be a groom’s best man? If you think it’s impossible, this Brooklyn groom is here to prove you wrong.
Aaron Benitez had once adopted a grey cat and named it Prince Michael. Since that day, the two are inseparable, so much so, that on his wedding day Aaron believed that his grey feline would be his best man too! While hunting for venues to be shortlisted, Aaron made sure that it was cat-friendly. Prince Michael was given a custom made suit for himself and that too by no ordinary tailor.
Speaking to the PEOPLE’S Magazine, Aaron said, “When we picked a caterer, we made sure they could make salmon (Michael’s favourite). And when we booked a DJ, we made sure he wouldn’t play ‘Who Let the Dogs Out. Prince Michael did a ton throughout the day. Aside from strutting down the aisle, his biggest role was keeping the party going well into the night. As a groomsman, he kept everyone in the wedding party entertained and energetic throughout”. He also tells PEOPLE Magazine that, “while including your pet in your wedding might seem enticing, Benitez does not recommend including your cat in the big day unless they are “super chill” and comfortable in new situations, like Prince Michael luckily is”.
The YouTube channel called Aaron’s Animals displays the adorable and playful bond the two share. The channel has an astonishing 2.4 million subscribers and 84 videos on it. The duo would keep the channel active through their hangout moments and would keep spreading love to all their followers like it was before the big day.
