Hope someone's pushed back the call time on The Vampire Diaries
The CW show's leading lady, Nina Dobrev, Tweeted
on Thursday about a late-night feline emergency.
"Barely got any zzzz's due to scary trip to kitty hospital in the middle of the night," she wrote, posting a photo of costar and boyfriend
Ian Somerhalder cuddling an orange-haired cat
in a cone.
The furry fellow appears to be the same one sharing face-time with Somerhalder, 34, in his Twitter photo
, but is apparently looked after by Dobrev, 24, as well, as the actress added the hashtag "concerned parents" to her Tweet.
But fans can rest easy.
"Kid is doing much better now," she wrote, sharing a solo shot
of the animal asleep on a hospital bed, as well as a pic of herself and the cat. "Scary stuff. That's one way to get your heart rate up."
