Rescue Cat Named After Pedro Pascal Finds New Home After Going Viral

Pedro Pspspscal has found a home!

The cat, named after much loved actor – or “daddy”, as the internet calls him – Pedro Pascal, went viral when the Kansas Humane Society posted a pic of the 2-year-old earlier this month, superimposed over stills of some of human Pedro’s latest films.

“Pedro Pspspscal is daddy and we all love this famous boi. Here’s some of his most famous scenes with costars Bella Ramsey, Grogu, and Nicolas Cage,” the Wichita-based shelter tweeted, referring to films The Last of Us, The Mandalorian and The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent. 

The tweet was shared on March 20 and has been viewed more than 159,000 times. Plus, we’ve since learned that feline Pedro was adopted within a day of going viral!

“He got adopted yesterday but we currently have 24 cats that would love to go home with you!” the shelter tweeted on March 22.

No further details have been shared about who adopted him (but wouldn’t it be amazing if a certain actor was feline Pedro’s new family?)

At the time of writing, the shelter has updated their stats to show there are still 15 cats available to adopt, along with 89 dogs and 3 other “small animals” including a guinea pig, a rabbit and a hamster.
