Paris (IAAFOTS) - Calendar star Mr. Winkle is engaged to world’s smallest cat Mr. Peebles, he announced on Friday, ending weeks of speculation over whether the short-time couple would wed. Appearing with Peebles at a Paris news conference, the 42-year-old explained how he had chosen the Arch de Triomphe in the city of romance to make his move. "Yap yap yap yap yap ... yap yap yap," Winkle said, clarifying later that the engagement had actually begun in the early hours of Friday.

Media attention on the couple has been intense since they revealed their relationship in April, and both have been prepared to discuss it openly in interviews and on red carpets. That openness has led to speculation that the relationship is a stunt to promote their careers, a notion that both have been swift to dismiss. Mr. Winkle's effusive display of affection during a recent interview with chat show host Oprah Winfrey, when he urinated on the sofa as he declared his love for Peebles, only fuelled the gossip.

"Mew," Peebles told IAAFOTS after the conference when asked for comment. No date has been announced for the wedding.

I hope he didn't try to audition you for the role of Winkle Wife when you met, I hear that Peebles was the last in a long line of potential mates including Scarlett Johanson and Gimmel, the cat who says "Fancy Feast, darling" in the commercials.
