Gandalf the kitten was fitted with a tag that read, “Will you marry me?” Woodley thought she was being filmed for an adoption video, but instead SPCA staff asked her to check the kitten’s tag and then Forsyth emerged to formally propose.

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!!!
