Insta-Graham: Ed Sheeran’s New Kitten

Grammy nominee Ed Sheeran is known for his sweet and sensitive lyrics, so it’s no surprise that the singer has a soft side. Sheeran took to Twitter to announce that he has a new cat: “So basically this one month old kitten was gonna get put down so I adopted him and called him Graham. Just bought Graham a bed and snacks.” The singer/songwriter was rumored to be dating Taylor Swift a few months ago; maybe the pop songstress’ love of cats rubbed off on him.

Sheeran tweeted an extreme close-up selfie of him and tagged Graham who has his very own Twitter handle, @GrahamShizza. While Graham’s account has only been active since Jan. 23, he already has 51,000 followers. His profile simply reads, “Tickle my belly and feed me Sheba.” Seems like a simple enough request; I’m glad to see the fame hasn’t gone to his head yet.

As is all too often the case with rescued animals, Sheeran said that the cat, “needs a lot of TLC,” as Sheeran has “a feeling his previous owners weren't that nice.” Thankfully, Graham is being showered with affection both online and at home. Maybe if he’s lucky Sheeran will build him a Lego House.
