It’s no secret that Taylor Swift is a certified crazy cat lady, in fact, she totally owns it. When she’s not she’s being a cat herself in a feature-length film or wearing cat-shaped accessories, she’s posting photos of her beloved children Meredith Grey, Olivia Benson, and Benjamin Button all over social media. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.
So, in celebration of International Cat Day, we thought we’d do a roundup of the best Itty Bitty Kitty Committee moments that we’ve been blessed with (so far).
It only feels right to kick it off with the day one OG, Meredith Grey. Named after Ellen Pompeo’s character on Grey’s Anatomy, life has never been the same for Taylor since she got her almost a decade ago. Although they have their ups and downs, Meredith will always be the Pikachu to Taylor’s Ash Ketchum.
The caption says it all.
Literally all of us when our alarm goes off.
Let’s not forget that Meredith took out this Twitter poll that had over a whopping 21,000 votes.
Just for fun… which of Taylor Swift’s three cats is your fave? 🙀😻😹

These photos are probably the reason why she won that poll tbh. Cute af!

If this isn’t memeable idk what is.

Does Meredith even know that THE Taylor Swift is her mom?
Middle child syndrome has never quite affected Princess of Meowtown Olivia Benson. Named after Mariska Hargitay’s Law & Order SVU character she is always by Taylor’s side, whether that’s hitting up the streets of NYC, appearing in her ‘Blank Space’ video or sitting like a meerkat every opportunity she gets.
Like Meredith, she also sits like a human.
If Olivia had an Instagram this would be her profile pic (cropping Taylor out ofc).
She hangs out with A-Listers such as Paula Abdul like it’s nbd.
The BOOP is sending us.
Some of the best content that the ‘Taylor Swift Now’ video series brought us.

Super extra, but that’s how we like it.
The best Easter egg of all! Taylor cheekily announced that she had adopted a third cat in the most extra way possible… by meeting him for the first time in her music video for ‘ME!’. It was love at first sight, and the rest is pretty much history. Although there was initial tension with both Meredith and Olivia, the three of them are now one happy lil family.
This announcement almost broke the internet.
The very first meeting was caught on camera!

We couldn’t leave these ones out…
Meredith and Olivia are pretty used to being on music video sets, but appearing on Wade Wilson’s shirt in Deadpool 2 is a whole other level.
