Speaking to People Magazine about his and Prince Michael's relationship, Benitez said:

"We really are best friends, on and off the screen. I know I can always count on Prince Michael to put a smile on my face when I'm down or be my wingman when I'm up".

Prince Michael even had a specially tailored suit for the occasion.

According to Benitez, finding a wedding venue that would be able to accommodate Prince Michael was crucial!

"When we looked for venues, allowing cats was the main priority. When we picked a caterer, we made sure they could make salmon (Michael’s fave). And when we booked a DJ, we made sure he wouldn't play 'Who Let the Dogs Out.'"

The images of the adorable best man have since gone viral on social media.


Apparently the wedding guests were also very impressed with how Prince Michael performed in his duties as best man!

Prince Michael apparently did a lot to keeping people in the party mood!


According to Benitez, "[Prince Michael] actually did a ton throughout the day. Aside from strutting down the aisle, his biggest role was keeping the party going well into the night. As a groomsman, he kept everyone in the wedding party entertained and energetic."

With all of that partying, I bet he was feline rough the next day!

Thankfully, Prince Michael is apparently an easy-going, and laid-back cat which made the whole day so much easier.

I can't imagine trying to do this with my girlfriend's cat, there'd be chaos everywhere.

Now that the wedding is over, the pair are back to work making videos.

Benitez hopes that their videos will prove that, "cats can be man’s best friend too". I'm more of a dog person really, but I'll let this little guy off because he looks so damn smart in that tailcoat!
