Creative Proposals with Cats
A while ago, we brought you a post about involving your sweetheart’s dog in your proposal. As much as we adore dogs, we don’t want them to have all the fun!
Pets come in all shapes and sizes (much like women’s engagement rings!), and they’re often a big part of the life a couple builds together. Sometimes there’s no better way to propose than enlisting help from her beloved pet. If the two of you are cat lovers, these creative proposal ideas are for you.
1. Classic Cat Proposal
This is a proposal tactic that dog lovers often use, but we think it’ll work with your cat, too. Here’s what to do: tie a ribbon around the cat’s neck one of our solitaire diamond rings attached. After that, it’s up to you how you and the kitty approach your partner. You can have the cat wake her up in the morning with the ring attached or simply tie it and wait until she sees it.
2. LOL Cats
This one is going to require some computer knowledge. If you haven’t heard of LOL Cats, you need to immediately search for them on the internet. They’re memes with pictures of cats and funny, broken English. If your soon-to-be fiance loves these memes, you could always take a picture of her cat and create your own LOL Cat meme that asks her to marry you. Here’s an example. If you have Photoshop skills, go wild with them; and if you don’t know where to begin, use Canva, a free design tool with tons of ready-to-use templates.
3. New Addition
If you or your sweetheart have the room and time for a new addition, you can surprise her with an adorable, fuzzy little kitten (but be sure she’s on board with this idea before you make the leap!). Have the kitten’s collar read, “Will you marry me?” The kitten doesn’t just serve as the cutest proposal tool ever. It also symbolizes your future and the new beginnings you’re starting together. Maybe it’ll even be the first pet you jointly own! And once you make the agonizing decision of which kitten to adopt, browsing through women’s engagement rings will seem much less daunting.
4. Dressed Up Cat
Get a custom sweater or outfit made for her cat. This is a good opportunity to incorporate some type of inside joke if you have one. If it’s a sweater, you can have, “Will you marry me?” embroidered on it. You could have another type of outfit done where your proposal is spelled out in rhinestones. Or, you could even buy a bridal outfit for the cat. Either way, once she sees her cat, get down on one knee and present her with one of our glittering solitaire diamond rings.
5. YouTube Star
If your girlfriend loves adorable cat videos (and let’s face it, who doesn’t?), spend some time creating your own video starring her cat. Keep it simple – a simple box or a laser pointer will get you started – and let the cat’s adorable personality shine. Then cut to something she won’t expect when she watches: a sign painted with, “I love you. Will you marry me?” or a slow-mo close-up of a dazzling diamond engagement ring. Watch the video together, and have your real-time proposal ready when she gasps in surprise.
