Ian Somerhalder..... ultimate cat man

As my first post on our site, I decided to post about one of Mother's favorite celebrities and cat men... Ian Somerhalder.  Since Lola and I hear about him ALL the time, I feel I'm quite knowledgeable about him, and his cat, Moke.

Did you know that Ian was nominated as one of People Magazine's sexiest men alive? And do you know that he brought his Moke to the photo shoot with him? Now that's impressive!  I found this video on You Tube of the shoot. (Mother, please stop drooling now. Thank you.)

Moke gets to travel with Ian,too. Look how calm he is.  He's my hero (Moke, not Ian.)

Ian does a pretty good imitation of a cat.  He could use a little more practice, though.

OK, even I admit you have to love a man who advocates for feline adoption.  He posted this on his Instagram:

“It’s HALLOWEEN!Will you go adopt a black kitty or Pup?Please? Black Dogs and cats are last to be adopted & the 1st to be euthanized…Why?Superstition.Silly humans-my little black one has done NOTHING but bring me amazing energy & shit-tons of love- in the words of Stevie Wonder-’When you believe in things that you don’t understand then you suffer, Superstition ain’t the way.’ For unconditional love go to your nearest shelter-like tomorrow!”

Even I have to admit that's impressive. 

Wow..... he also posted this on Instagram:

 “The newest addition to the family. Her name is Sohalia. Thank you @iamnikkireed for finding us this amazing kid in Conyers Georgia. Unfortunately this little kid was wildly mislabeled as “feral/not friendly”, and had Nikki not gone in and opened her cage regardless, we would have never found out that she is the most loving kitty on the planet and she may have been put down. The point is this; because shelters are so understaffed, this happens more often than not. Let’s encourage the people who work at shelters and people whom make policies for shelter workers to take more time to get to know the animals that are brought in, so they can properly inform potential adopters. Also, if you are thinking about adding a new member to your family, know that there might be more to the animal than what’s written on their cage!!! Go have fun and adopt! Send me pictures please! Thank you- Love, Ian”

MOTHER!!!! Send him our photos!!! 

Not only does he care about animals, he cares about the planet.  His organization, Ian Somerhalder Foundation "aims to empower, educate and collaborate with people and projects to positively impact the planet and its creatures."  He even has an animal sanctuary in the works.  He told Mother all about it when she met him this summer: 

I will confess that Mother has good taste. Mr. Somerhalder, you are the ultimate cat man. Thank you for all you do for animals everywhere.
