It was technically the bride and groom’s big day. Their painstaking preparation had finally resulted in what they believed would be a memorable wedding.
But it’s not the joyful newlyweds who have everyone talking about that day.
They’re referring to Moose, the couple’s beautiful ring bearer.
Rather than remove their beloved pet from the wedding celebrations, the couple apparently decided to give him a prominent role — and to make sure he looked the part.
While there were no doubt many elegant visitors in attendance for the ceremony, Moose undoubtedly stole the show in his small personalized collar and tie. Then he conquered the internet.
Moose’s human escort during the wedding posted a picture of the handsome cat, which instantly went viral:

“I feel like I owe this cat money,” remarked one Twitter user.
Another went ahead and made some appropriate changes to Moose’s photo.

Moose went from being a random cat to a bona fide internet superstar in an instant.
There’s no word on how the newlyweds feel about being upstaged by their ring bearer, but their special day will be remembered for a long time, due in large part to that elegant cat.
