Ian Somerhalder's latest relationship might not have a happy ending.

"Me and my new love," The Vampire Diaries star, 34, Tweeted alongside a photo of the one and only, and presumably lonely, Grumpy Cat.

As to be expected, however, meeting the hunky animal-loving actor over the weekend during a Mashable interview at Austin's South by Southwest festival was not enough to swipe the disdain off Grumpy Cat's face.

Though Somerhalder is actually dating costar Nina Dobrev, he had only nice things to say about the famously unamused kitty, whose real name is Tardar Sauce (a.k.a. "Tard").

"This cat is kind of amazing," he added on Twitter.
