Falling in love is a beautiful thing. Finding that special someone can be one of the best moments of your entire life. Also, the engagement can be such a surprising event! When Jerad Forsyth found Kat Woodley in 2014, he knew she was the one he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. After two years of dating each other, Jerad knew that he should pop the question! At the same time, the couple was thinking about adopting a kitten.
Before the couple was about to adopt a kitten at the SPCA, Jerad went. While he was there he told them he wanted to ask Kat to marry him. The Erie SPCA knew just how to help. When Kat would get there they would give her the kitten, but there was a very special message on it.
Jerad pretended to be at work while she picked up the cat. So Kat went to get the kitten. When she got there, she was pleasantly surprised to see him at the shelter. Although Kat was confused she explains,
“I was very surprised… They handed me [a cat] and asked me to read the tag. Jerad’s aunt works at the SPCA so I figured she bought us the name tag.”
On the kitten’s tag, it said: “will you marry me?”
Almost immediately Kat said yes to Jerad! To their luck, someone got the whole moment on video. Everyone was overjoyed to see this beautiful thing to happen at the local SPCA! If you would like to watch the event unfold please watch the awesome video below. This will for sure be a moment this couple never forgets.
Can't think of a better way to head into the Thanksgiving holiday! Love is in the air here at the SPCA! That's a "Will You Marry Me?" tag on tiny kitten Gandalf! After meeting on a blind date Thanksgiving 2014, Jerad knew Kat (yes, her name is Katherine!) was the only one for him…and decided to tell her so with a proposal moments ago when she came in to adopt Gandalf! Kat thought she was being filmed for an adoption video…but we knew otherwise! Congratulations to the happy couple – lots to be thankful for!!!
