When Taylor Swift met Benjamin Button…

As soon as Swift’s music video released on April 26th, one thing that caught everyone’s attention was the presence of her two cats in the video, Olivia Benson and Meredith Grey.

Interestingly, there was another cat that featured in the video, with which Brendon Urie proposed Swift.

It didn’t take long for her fandom to put two and two together and soon theories started floating around Taylor Swift having adopted the third cat.

Soon enough, Swift confirmed the theory by posting an adorable picture, cuddled up with the mystery cat and the caption: And then there were three…


In a Friday Instagram Live with Panic! She narrated her love story with Benjamin.

The handler had asked Swift if she wanted to hold the cat before they shot their scene.

That’s when he started purring, and Swift just couldn’t resist those eyes, that according to Swift, said ‘Adopt me, please!’

In the live, her ME! co-star Brendon Urie added, “It was truly love at first sight, love at first purr.”

The same day, Swift posted a video on Instagram that had her holding the kitten like a baby and the kitten seemed to enjoy every bit of it. Swift admitted in the video that she has never encountered a cat that prefers to be carried that, but that’s how her new cat prefers to travel, like a human baby!

The social media was taken by storm with various prospective names for the new cat.

But, Taylor Swift kept up with her tradition to name her cats after famous characters. In another post on Instagram, she announced her cat’s name with the caption: This is Benjamin Button. He is a good boy.

  1. I totally, relate with Taylor Swift and her love for cats. Currently, I have two feline delights; “Josie” and “Honey.” Josie, a blue point Siamese with her own unique cat chat tends to be quite, vocal at times especially at mealtime like when I’m the least bit late feeding Josie she’s super quick to remind me with a very, demanding “MEOW!” On the other hand my black, beauty “Honey” cat girl while I’m at my sewing machine makes no bones about jumping on the cutting table behind me and stretches herself out to lean over on my back and begin to nudge the side of my head while loudly purring saying her distinctive cat speak, “Meh, Meh, Meh” as if to say it’s my time for some attention. Honey is persistent until, she has her way; she really, is quite, a honey. I do believe that having pets is very, healthful for us human folk. 🙂
