Actor Yoo Seung Ho responds to concerns about his adopted cats from allegedly abusive YouTuber

AKP STAFF

Actor Yoo Seung Ho responded to concerns about his adopted cats from an allegedly abusive YouTuber.

Last October, Yoo Seung Ho adopted two cats, Gomi and Dori, fostered by a YouTuber who goes by the name gapsupasture. On May 7, students who attended the same veterinary university as gapsupasture alleged he was abusing cats to increase views on his YouTube channel, which is a stark contrast to his animal-loving image as someone who rescues abandoned animals.

The YouTuber admitted he simply bought the cats from pet shops, but denied starving them as he was accused of. Netizens then raised concerns about Yoo Seung Ho's two pets.

The actor wrote on Instagram on May 8:

"I'm writing this post after much consideration because many people are worried. Simba and Autumn are doing well. I changed their names. Gomi is now SImba, and Dori is Autumn. They're both eating well, digesting well, playing well, and doing well. Autumn has even gotten over a peritonitis. Even if you give love to an animal its whole life, it's still not enough. Please do not think of animals as a means of making money."


Police have stated they plan to question gapsupasture.

Nobody new this guy was a monster at the time, so I don't blame him from adopting the cats from him. I'm glad his cats are doing well and are healthy.
