Cat Lady We Love

Taylor Swift Loves Cats!

It doesn’t get much cuter, folks.

Super-sweet superstar Taylor Swift is 100 percent bonkers in love with her adorable Scottish Fold cats, Meredith Grey and Olivia Benson—and who can blame her?

The 25-year-old singer was spotted last fall carrying new addition Olivia, (pictured) around the streets of NYC, raising a few eyebrows. But as she told Access
Hollywood, there’s a perfectly logical reason why—not that this pair need to explain anything!

“The kitten freaks out about being put in the cat carrier,” said Taylor. “So I was just like, ‘OK, all right, we're gonna just do this!’ It was like a ten-foot walk from my door to the car! What I thought was funny about those pictures is that, like, the cat is looking straight at the cameras!”

Scottish Fold kitten Olivia found a home with Taylor last June, joining the singer's three-year-old cat, Meredith Grey.

What’s with those names, you ask? They sound familiar for a reason. Taylor named her cats after her favourite Law & Order: SVU and Grey's Anatomy characters (Olivia Benson Meredith Grey, respectively).

“Strong, complex, independent women,” she explained to Rolling Stone. “That's the theme.”

Need more reasons to adore this trio?
Not only is Taylor’s Twitter (@taylorswift13) filled with adorable photos of her cats, but Meredith has a Twitter account of her very own, too, @MeredithKitty. Not to be outdone, Olivia was the model for these awesome Champion Sneaky Cat sneakers Taylor designed for Keds celebrating the release of her album, 1989. (The sneaks, $55, are currently sold out but more are to be released later this spring—you can sign up on keds.com to be alerted when they come available.) Then of course there’s the Diet Coke commercial the three did together. If you ask us, 2015 belongs to Taylor Swift—and her too-cute cats!
