By Briana Hansen

Everybody knows about the tradition of the bride throwing a bouquet at her wedding, but few know of the age-old tradition of a bride throwing a cat. Like the bouquet, catching the cat has its own rewards. But instead of becoming the next to get married, you're the next person to get lucky cat scratches all over your body!

Before you get too worried about these sweet feline friends, this is not an actual wedding tradition. A man in Australia, who loves both Photoshop and cats, started doctoring wedding pictures to get a good laugh. Lots of people began submitting their own tweaked pictures and BridesThrowingCats.com was born.
