The Newest Star On 'Outlander' Is An Adorable Grey Kitten And The World Is Obsessed

Fans of the hit series 'Outlander' have been losing their minds over the show's latest choice in casting. And honestly, even if you're not a fan of the show, you will too!

The 'Outlander' cast has been hard at work on the fifth season of the historical time travel series, with new episodes set to air in February 2020. Some of the big names associated with the show are Scottish actor, Sam Heughan and Irish actress, Caitriona Balfe.

However, at the moment, it's a much smaller, fluffier cast member that the world is going crazy for. His name is Adso and it's pretty safe to say he's going to be everyone's new favorite character.

Starz teased about the casting on Twitter back in May saying, “We have a very im-purr-tent casting announcement…who could it be??”

Fans of the original novels written by Diana Gabaldon knew exactly who they were talking about.

Adso is first mentioned in the fifth book called 'The Fiery Cross.' The little kitten is found by Jamie Fraser (played by Sam Heughan), who brings him home and gives him to his wife, Clair (played by Caitriona Balfe).

Jamie names the kitten Adso after a cat his late mother once owned. The cat soon becomes the hunter of the household, keeping the home free of rodents.

Fellow members of the cast and crew have fallen completely in love with the adorable feline. Balfe said in an interview

"It does create a lot of distractions because we all just want to play with the cat instead of doing any work."

Even the 'Outlander' Twitter account has changed its description to say, “Now an Adso fan account.”

We can see why!

Sam Heughan is particularly smitten with the kitten. He has posted several photos of Adso to his social media and doesn't seem to mind sharing the spotlight with his new co-star one bit.
