Vampire Diariesstar Paul Wesley (Stefan) is a funny guy — but his sense of humor seems to veer towards the subtly sarcastic, as evidenced by his unexpectedly straight forward pet-naming skills. You’ll never guess the name of Paul’s cat!
Paul recently took to Mobio Insider to answer the all important question: What is your cat’s name? “Cat. Literally,” he responded. Classic! This only makes us appreciate Paul more — and makes us wonder if he’s a Breakfast At Tiffany’s fan. In the film, Holly Golightly (played by Audrey Hepburn) famously names her cat Cat because she doesn’t want to get too attached. (We hope this isn’t Paul’s reason!) This has been mimicked by many a fan — both on and off the screen — though our favorite example has to be Gossip Girl’s Blair Waldorf, who names her cat Cat after the Hepburn character. Maybe Paul is a Blair Waldorf fan? But, really, who isn’t?
Paul and Cat are kind of adorable together. Earlier this month, Paul shared a photo of the two of them out for a stroll on Instagram. “Walkin the cat,” Paul captioned the pic. In the snapshot, Paul is rocking a backwards baseball cap, black jeans, a tee, and black leather boots. Cat is rocking the just-fur look.
