Cairo: A group of youth had gathered purportedly in Yemen’s city of Aden to celebrate the wedding of two cats.

A video circulating on social media shows a person among the crowd holding a sheet of paper similar to a marriage contract as he puts one leg of each cat in an ink case and stamps the document in a sign of consent, mimicking marriage procedures, amid cheers from persons at hand.
