Throwing bouquets is so last season. Tossing cats instead? That's so hot right meow. At least if you believe the digitally manipulated photos on our new favorite wedding Tumblr, Brides Throwing Cats. The site features user-submitted photos of fantastic

Why is it supposed to be funny to anyone? Is it symbolic of tossing their stupid, cruel brains out if their heads?

I did not read it all I read was the head line. HOW CAN ANIMAL TORTURE BE FUNNY, TO ANYONE. I AM REPULSED this is even a story. I do not make a lot of stories from the Examiner because they are just to repulsive LIKE THIS ONE. I AM SOOOOOOOO SAD THAT PEOPLE THINK THIS IS AN ACCEPTABLE THING TO DO TO AN INNOCENT ANIMAL

Saw and noted this last night. I read the article, and while this may be a 'hot' thing to do for most young brides, personally, I hope the majority would not be privy to this at all. This is computer material, not the actual action of 'throwing cats' around. The author disavows this type of behavior by also including these two sentences. "At least if you believe the DIGITALLY MANIPULATED PHOTOS on our new favorite wedding Tumblr, Brides Throwing Cats. The site features user-submitted photos of fantastically PHOTOSHOPPED felines flying from the bride's hands toward an eager crowd of women." Actually throwing cats? No. No. and NO.

Has no one commenting here actually read the description? They aren't really throwing cats, the cats are photoshopped in.

As long as no one is actually throwing cats, then I am okay with the photos!

The problem is, people will see it, NOT read that it's photoshopped, and think it's OK to do. Probably in order to get a laugh on YouTube or some dumb thing like that. Alas, with the invention of photoshop, gone are the days when people could watch something like a Steve Martin movie and assume that the cat juggling wasn't actually a real thing. People don't actually READ or RESEARCH anymore before reacting. No attention span. :P

A lot of soreheads on here. I thought the photos were hilarious and you don't have to look all that closely to see they are fake. Love the one with Grumpy Cat. lol

Some people will presume that it is ok to follow this behavior, not knowing that the photos are photo shopprd

The cat that owned me was giggling furiously. I had to peek at what she was reading as she can bring up some fascinating websites. Oh, outraged indignation of people reacting to the tossing of bridal photoshopped images. She is bemused by humans often.

It's not real, get a grip. Just because someone has some odd trend of throwing cats in the air in a Let's Pretend bridal flourish doesn't mean that the entire world of brides will storm out the door and start throwing for real cats into the air for a practice run. It's like that computerized image in Sweden of the cat skydiving. Soon Smokey the Bear will have to be recalled and what about Bullwinkle, a cartoon 'exploited' moose required to bring laughter to humans.

Oh, oh...someone just called the police, the cat that owns me can't stop laughing and she's waking up the entire neighbourhood.

Most people DON'T read the fine print, let alone see it! It is a gross manipulation of something that is cruel and inhumane. And most don't care about the fine print! That's what the show "Jackass" is about! People doing stupid stuff just to get on YouTube!
I have a lot of problems with the subject matter and the settings. A wedding is surely not the place for this stuff, anyway.
Grow up people. It's not funny when you even PRETEND animal cruelty!

Read the article people! Cats aren't really being thrown FFS! If you knew Barb Knight CAT LADY, you know she would never post anything in a comical way if cats were being harmed. Get a damn grip.

Thanks Barb :-))

Because it gives too many idiots ideas who should know better. It's symbolic of animal abuse.
