Have you seen the new Star Wars movie? Well, then, you’ve seen this cat, sort of.

The interwebs have gone wild over the similarities between a two-year-old Oriental Shorthair cat named Corey and actor Adam Driver, who plays Adam Sackler on HBO’s Girls and Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The Monmouth County SPCA posted Corey’s pic to social media Friday, along with a description they no doubt hoped would help find a loving home for the feline with such unusual features.

And people immediately took notice. Twitter user Marci Robin posted the pic with the challenge: “Tell me this cat at @TheMCSPCA doesn’t look like Adam Driver.”

The Internet firestorm brought plenty of attention Corey’s way, and his fate has turned out better than that of (spoiler alert) Han Solo. Corey was adopted Monday and given the new name.. wait for it… Kylo Ren!

Emily McCombs posted her story of falling in love with the cat — just before he became famous — and becoming Kylo Ren’s new owner.
