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
