When cat lover Kat Woodley excitedly walked into The SPCA Serving Erie County, NY, she knew she’d be taking an adorable gray kitten home, which she’d adopted with her boyfriend, Jerad…but getting engaged was an added surprise!

Kat and Jerad have been together for two years as of Thanksgiving, and they’d always planned on getting a cat together. So when they met Gandolf the kitten, they knew he’d be the perfect addition to their little family.

“[Jerad’s] aunt works at the SPCA and was fostering the kitty, and we fell in love with him,” Kat told Love Meow.

When she went to pick up their new addition, she was told she was being filmed for an adoption video. She also thought that Jerad wasn’t going to make it there. As it turns out, she was getting set up for the biggest surprise of her life!

“I thought Jerad was at work and he surprised me by showing up and proposing. Gandalf’s name tag said ‘Will you marry me?’ It was so cute,” Kat said in the Love Meow story.

Of course, she said “yes” to marrying Jerad – and “yes” to providing a forever home for their sweet little Gandolf. Talk about a great day for Kat!

This was definitely a day to remember for this adorable trio. And props to Jerad for proposing in such a creative, beautiful way. We couldn’t think of a better way to start your lives together – congratulations to the whole family!
