Kellie Pickler has been married to her husband, Kyle Jacobs, for over a year now.
They seem to have a very solid marriage, though there was one big issue that could have torn them apart.
"I love Kyle, he's my best friend. The only complaint that I would have with my husband is that I had to give up my cat."
She and her cat, Pickles, had been inseparable since she adopted him in 2006.
"I adopted him from an animal shelter out in Tennessee. He was my best friend. He went with me everywhere."
The problem was that if she wanted to marry Jacobs, she would have to get rid of her best friend.
"My husband's allergic to everything – he's, like, allergic to air. So, unfortunately, I had to find my cat Pickles a home with a family back in North Carolina."
At least Pickles has a good home now. It must've been tough to give up your best friend like that.
"I cried, I was devastated. My husband's going to be so sad when he reads this."
It must've been so tough! But we'd hope her wonderful husband makes up for it.
"Every time I look at my hand, I go, 'Good God.' What's behind this ring is such unconditional love, trust and respect. I see my husband every time I look at my ring. I'm a blessed woman – I have a good man."
So even though she had to give up Pickles, she's still a cat lover and does what she can to help out cats everywhere through charity and advocacy work.
"Cats kind of get slighted sometimes. And there's the stereotype about people that love cats – they call us crazy cat ladies. I'm crazy, but it's not because I love cats."
We love that you love cats and we're sure that cats love you too!
