Last week, a cat picture on the internet was shared a lot — sorry, that’s nowhere near specific enough. We’re talking about the cat that bears an uncanny resemblance to The Force Awakens star Adam Driver. That cat became a star in his own right after Marci Robin, a volunteer for the Monmouth County SPCA, posted a picture of him on Twitter while pointing out the resemblance. Well, that cat now has a much happier ending to his story than anyone who joins the Dark Side can hope for, getting adopted late last week.
Then again, this kitty might be a Sith lord in the making, after all. The cat formerly known as Corey has been relieved of his old name, and, as it was destined to be, is now called Kylo Ren. We certainly haven’t heard the last from him, either — his new owner is Elite Daily executive editor Emily McCombs, who was savvy enough to immediately register catam_driver on Instagram before anyone was able to swoop in and start username squatting.
In addition to keeping the Kylo Ren fed, McCombs is now responsible for getting the other neighborhood cats into Stormtrooper outfits for photo ops. She might also need to get him one of those new red lightsabers, because we all know how much cats love red lasers.
