Usually, sadly they would be dead. You can try to replant them (or if they're still in the ground to keep growing) but I've not had any success with that myself.

I've had multiple instances of young seedlings recovering even when eaten down to the bare stem. They don't always come back but leave them for a few days and see how you go - can't hurt it any more than the cat already has

Hey Jerrysberrys depending on what sort of seedlings they are really. If the seedlings are in the beans, peas, melons, onions, also a few bulb varieties and mainly vine variety for veggies and fruit will still reshoot from the base of the plant.
If it's a flower seedling I wouldn't be sure how to answer that one, I'm only just starting out growing beneficial flowers and ornamental myself.
