In South Florida, the long-haired Scottish Fold cat, Seamus T Cat, lives the high life with his brothers Pete and Opie. Today, the big grey and black floof with bright gold eyes is a comical star on social media, but not so long ago, things were quite different. Four years ago, he was living in Kuwait and needed rescue.
“Playing hide and go seek with my brother Opie. I always win. 😹😹” Although blind, his hoomans say, “Opie iz blind but also fearless. Doesn’t slow him down a bit. ❤️”
Seamus Goes from Rescue to the Pampered Life
Originally, a breeder in Kuwait intended to sell Seamus, but then they rejected him due to a kink on the tip of his tail. All of a sudden, the one-year-old cat ended up requiring rescue. Fortunately, a rescue group saved Seamus and a group of other kitties, flying them to the US. Then, a family in Florida adopted him, and they think he’s “purrfect.” It works out great for this cat, who doesn’t mind being waited on. Really, it seems Seamus fully expects the royal treatment like some other cats we know.
“My hoomans are so lucky that I let them live with me,” he says on Instagram.
“Toe Floof Level: EXPERT”
Before long, Seamus quickly made himself at home with his brothers in his sunny Florida home. So, he went from distressed rescue to pampered royalty, a natural fit for this cat. In particular, his hooman dad is evidently his willing subject and loves him very much.
“Dis is how daddy holds me. Mommy thinks itz weird but I luv it.”
“Release me now hooman! I did NOT agree to dis!!”
Often, the funny cat can be seen commanding his hooman servants to fetch him his breakfast or another treat. If they disappoint Seamus, well, they might pay the price.
“Hooman was late with my breakfast. Had to teach him a lesson.”
One day, his daddy, who used to be a dog person, started showing the photogenic floof on Instagram. Now, the cat fully expects a post about him each day.
“Dad says I have ‘wookie’ paws. I don’t know what that means.”
In short order, Seamus’ fanbase grew to the thousands, today numbering over 66K.
Sometimes, Seamus sits like a big fluffy Buddha as he practices cat yoga poses or plays in empty boxes and bubble wrap.
“I like to start all my dayz wit a little cat yoga.”

“And to think is used to live on the streets.”
“Freshly combed. You may take my photo now hooman.”
Other times, this cat commands from a Viking throne, demanding his hooman servants take their leave with haste.
“Dis iz no longer your bench…it iz now my throne. Dat iz all hooman. Leave me now. “
