'Vampire Diaries' star falls for a certain grumpy cat

We hope "Vampire Diaries'" actress Nina Dobrev likes cats.

According to his Twitter account, Dobrev's boyfriend and co-star Ian Somerhalder is smitten with a kitten - and one who just happens to have an adorable attitude.

"Me and my new love," Somerhalder posted on March 10 to Instagram, sharing a photo of himself at SXSW with the infamous Grumpy Cat, the Internet's favorite feline.

Me and my new love...

As CNN's Brandon Griggs reports, Somerhalder wasn't the only one taken by Grumpy Cat at this year's SXSW in Austin. Attendees stood in line for hours trying to get a snapshot with Grumpy Cat, an 11-month-old mixed-breed whose real name is Tardar Sauce.

"She is a sweetie pie with beautiful eyes, I might add," Somerhalder gushed to E! News. "I don't know if she was drunk or maybe they gave her some ketamine or something but she was, she was very peaced out." (For the record, Grumpy Cat's handlers don't give her sedatives.)

      Try 'Googling' it. It's a true story, looser.

      I wasn't referring to the story, per se. I was referring to the fake El Disgusto blogger below who started their sentence with "True Story."

      And, it's spelled "loser," not "looser," but only a real loser doesn't know the difference.

    True Story: Ian had to do a nood scene for Vampire Diaries once, in front of Dobrev. Instead of going full nood, he put on a pair of elephant ear undies and the trunk was his schlong! Love a guy with a big hoo-ha! I'll take anything I can get!

    Is he standing in front of a painting, or is he in some kind of an avant garde strip club? Or is that Nina Dobrev behind a shower curtain?

    I have a one-eyed cat, and a blind one. I wonder if I should put them on U tube, too. Maybe they would become famous, just like Grumpy cat.

    I wonder who is "bigger" Michael Fassbender or Ian Somerhalder?

    I must say, Ian does have the most lovely eyes! They actually resemble Grumpy Cats!

    Ever notice how the trolling comments peter out after 4PM EST? All the junior high kids go home from school and no longer have access to the internet, I would guess.

      I disagree. Junior High kids wouldn't have that much internet access during the day. The trolls are adults goofing off at work, and the comments taper off because they've left work for the day. Just wants, they'll pick up a little later on.

    Is that supposed to be some kind of knock against this guy's preference? Read the story again. Slowly, fugtard. It says: "We hope "Vampire Diaries'" actress Nina Dobrev likes cats. According to his Twitter account, DOBRAV'S BOYFRIEND and co-star Ian Somerhalder is smitten with a kitten..."

    Clear enough d!ck?

    • Well now...

      it would seem that I have struck a nerve with Mr. D!ck Fore. Perhaps he's jealous of Ms. Dobrev, and would like to have Somerhalder's d!ck all to himself...
