There have been many cats cute enough to distract the internet from whatever it was we were supposed to be doing (hello, summer Fridays stuck at work). But SCOTUS—the Supreme Cat of the United States—might just be the cutest of them all.

SCOTUS the cat, as the Dose pointed out, is intriguing as well as adorable. A blue-grey Scottish Fold with accounts on Instagram and Twitter, he nearly always has a look of total and inescapable terror on his little face.

Here is @scotuscat being terrified of a Hello Kitty doll.

When SCOTUS was but a wee Scottish Fold kitten, he was barely the size of a cellphone charger. No, really. The tiny scaredy-cat also got lost in purses and stared out from inside them in blank terror.

Move over, Grumpy Cat—there’s a new internet feline in town! SCOTUS the cat is a fast-rising star, whose favorite snack is a piece of smoked salmon from his mom’s Sunday bagel. And you should follow him right now.
