    • Baltimore police officer Jon Boyer, 26, regularly drops off stray cats and dogs he finds to the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter
    • But when he brought in an adorable kitty last May, the animal shelter posted a heart-melting picture of the pair on its Facebook page
    • The image received more than 4,000 likes and several hundred comments praising his selfless work -- and handsome looks
    • Now the officer features in the BARCS ad campaign 'Show Your Soft Side' and he has his own Facebook fan page, 'I love Jon Boyer'

    Internet heartthrob: Hunky Baltimore police officer Jon Boyer, pictured, has been inundated with marriage proposals after this photo of him cuddling a stray kitten he rescued and then adopted went viral




    Now the officer features in the BARCS ad campaign 'Show Your Soft Side' and he has his own Facebook fan page, 'I love Jon Boyer.'

    Comments on the Facebook page include 'Nothing sexier than a man with his rescued animal!' and 'OMG!!!!! HE IS HOT!!!!' Other Facebook users wrote: 'My future husband,' and 'Is he single??'

    'It was kind of weird. I hadn't been expecting that attention at all,' Boyer told Today.com of his rise to fame.

    '(Rescuing animals) was kind of a thing I'd been doing a little while before that. It just happened to blow up with that picture.'

    He said he's always had a love for animals, particularly cats.

    Longtime love: 'I used to hang posters in my room of cats, because I loved them,' he said


    'I used to hang posters in my room of cats, because I loved them,' he said. 'My parents always wondered why I didn't like dogs. I love dogs, but cats are kinda my thing.'

    Boyer, who's been an officer with the Baltimore Police Department for three and a half years, had six cats at one point, and all but two are rescue kittens.

    Now he has three cats, including Lilly, the kitten in the photo that made him a heartthrob.

    He said he gets why the picture went viral, telling Today.com 'the whole guy in a police uniform with a kitten makes people melt'

    Teasing: While he's fielding a steady stream of marriage proposals from his female fans, he said his fellow officers have responded to his newfound fame by jokingly nicknaming him 'cat man'

    However, he insisted rescuing stray animals was just 'one of the million things' he and his colleagues' do on a daily basis.

    While he's fielding a steady stream of marriage proposals from his female fans, he said his fellow officers have responded to his newfound fame by jokingly nicknaming him 'cat man.'

    This was worth it if it meant bringing a greater awareness to the cause of helping stray animals in need, he said.

    'If (the media interest) is giving animals a chance to get rescued that wouldn't have had a chance to before because someone sees my story, that makes me happy,' he said.

    Well hello Jon Boyer. That's funny about all the marriage proposals.

    He's pretty buff too. Are we taking bets on whether he's gay? *waves $1* (I'm a conservative gambler.)

    He lost me there.

    I bet the guys he works with are making his life hell right now. They are just mad they didn't think of it.

    I could handle photographs of cats he actually raised on his walls. Random strange animal posters as a teenager? No.

    I was just thinking that if I were a cop in Baltimore, I'd probably hang posters of cats in my room, too. It's cheaper than Xanax.

    It crossed my mind - it was more the hair and face than his body.

    I have to see what these women look like though - not stereotypical cat ladies I hope (JK, no real offense to GR's cat ladies, if we have any).

    Great story, and I love the photos. Men who love animals rule. And there's hope for his female fans, my hubby adores cats and he is definitely not gay.

    I choose to believe he's joking about the posters.
