Taylor Swift is an American singer/songwriter and actress. We are told she has a “major obsession with cats”. She calls herself a cat lady so she is definitely one of us! Although the whole concept of “celebrity” baffles me.
In the video above she is on a plane travelling with her new kitten, Olivia Benson; named after a TV character from the American Law & Order a police/crime drama series. Taylor Swift loves Law & Order!
The video was posted to her 9.6 million Instagram followers. Taylor Swift is surprised at how soundly her kitten is sleeping on the plane.
“I don’t even know how this is happening, but its happening. She’s a really aggressive sleeper”
But kittens are good sleepers. They get tired just like kids.
I am not convinced that the way she is travelling with her kitten is completely safe. I am surprised the airlines let people take their cat out of the carrier when they are on the plane. What if the kitten jumped off and ran? Someone (people and cat) could get hurt.
In the photo below Taylor wears a crop top and matching short skirt with her adorable white furball on her lap. The photo was also posted on Instagram.
Taylor has another cat. Her name is Meredith and she appears to be a Scottish Fold but not to “type” meaning not meeting the breed standard because the ears are not right but they are folded.
The name “Meredith” comes from Meredith Grey of the TV show Grey’s Anatomy. Taylor likes her television it seems.
Apparently, everything Taylor owns is cat related and she gets presents from her fans that are also cat related. Although looking at the picture of Meredith in her home I don’t see cat stuff there. She clearly likes cats. I take that on face value. Let’s just hope it is not one of these celebrity fads. You know what I mean: miniature dogs being carried in handbags etc.. I remember Paris Hilton adopting a dwarf cat because they are “cute”. To some celebrities pets can become accessories. I am not suggesting that this is the case with Taylor.
