When we took Ke$ha’s spirit animal quiz, we learned that we are owls — mysterious and perceptive. But it looks like the singer will have to add another category for Ian Somerhalder’s (Damon Salvatore) cat. 

The Vampire Diaries star did a photoshoot for Origin magazine, and Butch Hogan — who took the pictures — posted a couple on his Instagram. “Ian and his spirit guide...” he captioned a black-and-white photo of Mr. Somerhalder and his cat.

Basically, we think that means Ian is curious, independent, intuitive, and cuddly.
