Grant Schroeder and Emma Ferguson first connected over their mutual love of cats. The couple got married on July 24. Grant Schroeder hide caption
Two cats and one popular Twitter artist helped unite a man and woman separated by more than 4,600 miles.
It all started on Twitter — specifically, with the account called "poorly drawn cats." The account's premise is pretty simple: Artist Heloísa Nora uses photos of people's cats and draws them. The drawings don't have a lot of details, but they're still perfect in how they really do capture each individual cat.
Grant Schroeder was following the account when he decided to try to get a commission of his cat, Luna, then a cute little black kitten with green eyes.
Nora made the drawing in 2019 and posted it to her account as she normally does. That's when Emma Ferguson, of the United Kingdom, took notice. She also had a cat named Luna. After seeing Nora's drawing, Ferguson went to Schroeder's account.
