While ex-girlfriend Nina Dobrev was apparently busy canoodling The Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth (with Miley Cyrus reportedly none too happy about it), environmental crusader and The Vampire Diaries actor Ian Somerhalder turned to the solace of his four-legged friends for Valentine's Day, according to his Twitter and Instagram:

The boy doth protest too much, methinks - even if Somerhalder clearly does prefer to spend time in the company of animals than other human beings (at least, they seem to be the only living creatures he talks about on social media), but even so.

What do you think? Let me hear it in the comments.
