When 48-year-old Barbarella Buchner split from her husband-of-seven-years, she thought that she would never find love again until she fell in love with her two pet cats. The UK DailyMail has the more:
But then love struck again, albeit from a very unusual direction. Now Ms Buchner is happily married once more – to her two pet cats.
Now the Lanzarote-based web designer says she’s never been happier and is so devoted to her feline husbands, Spider and Lugosi, she has their initials tattooed on her right leg.
‘My two cats are my soul mates,’ says Ms Buchner, who is originally from London. ‘They’re the loves of my life.
‘Before when I had a human relationship, he’d come home and we’d argue over something or he’d want to chat when I don’t want to chat.
‘Lugosi and Spider are different – I’m definitely happily married to them. I’m not alone, I have my cats now. I have no regrets and I don’t care what people say.’
Ms Buchner, who married the two felines 10 years ago this month, has long adored cats and has always kept the animals as pets.
‘As a child, I was always surrounded by cats – our family always owned at least one or two of them,’ she says.
