Beautiful couple (and animal lovers) Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed have adopted another pet!

Ian posted a very cute and loving photo of the couple with new cat Sohalia on his Instagram.

In the caption, the smoldering actor also encouraged others to adopt a new pet from local shelters, help make shelter life a better place for all the animals who live there, and remember that there’s more to each animal that what is labeled on their cage.

He wrote, “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

The couple have already adopted several animals together — cats, dogs, and even horses!

Aww. Who else is going to their local shelter this afternoon?
