A Woman Has Married Her Cat To Stop Landlords Getting Rid Of Her



It’s fair to say that there are a lot of landlords in this country who are complete and utter assholes when it comes to looking after their tenants and treating them correctly, but I didn’t think that the solution to stop landlords from taking advantage of their tenants would be for the tenant to marry their cat though.

This is exactly what 49-year-old single mum Deborah Hodge has decided to do in order to stop landlords from kicking her out of her residence because of her cat India, another cat and two huskies. Hodge thinks that landlords will take it seriously that she won’t be separated from India because of their recent commitment to one another:

I had nothing to lose and everything to gain so I married my cat! I recited vows under the universe that no man will ever tear myself and India apart.

I set out my intention that I would never be separated from the animal I adore. I can’t be without India. She is truly a sensation, she is so friendly and amazing.

She is fundamentally the most important thing in my life after my children.

By marrying India, I need any future landlords to know that we come as a package and we cannot be separated under any circumstances as she is as important to me as the children.

I refuse to be parted with her. I’d rather live on the streets than be without her.

I’m terrified of losing India. I can barely leave my house with anxiety over what the future holds and I’m just desperate not to lose my cat.

Although some might think it a stupid idea, I wanted to be able to show physically, by holding the ceremony in front of my friends even though they thought I was bonkers that I am very serious.

I had a group of friends there for the ceremony – they all think I’ve gone bats**t crazy but we all had a lovely day. My kids weren’t there on the day, they just think that Mummy has lost the plot!

We lost Siri and Starshine and then Jamal and I do not want to lose another beloved pet. I vowed in sickness and in health, in death do us part, and I meant it.

Yeah I think everyone that hears about this is just going to think that Hodge is crazy to be honest, not just her family and children. Kinda think that it might work against her because landlords wouldn’t want a crazy/mentally ill person staying in their flats/houses?

Unfortunately though, it seems that this all could be a problem for Hodge in the near future. She recently lost her job and is worrying about how she’s going to pay her rent. Again, it probably isn’t doing her any favours in the eyes of her landlord by marrying a cat and going to the newspapers about it because that isn’t exactly finding a job is it? They’re just gonna be worried about how she’s going to make rent in the next few weeks and that’s a way better reason to evict someone instead of the fact that she owns a cat. Really think she’s approaching this problem in completely the wrong way.

For more of the same, check out this tenant that never paid rent, left 800 cans in the flat and never flushed the toilet. The absolute worst.
