OFFSTAGE: The Taylor Swift Meow Heard ‘Round the World

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Taylor Swift just got a kitten. Did you hear? It’s been all over the news. In fact, it might be trending. But in case you have not heard the details of her fuzzy little baby, I’ll tell you what I know about the new love of Swift’s life. Her name is Meredith. She is gray and white. She looks small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. She’s all kinds of adorable. And, on top of that, pop star Katy Perry is consumed with jealousy of Swift’s new kitten. When Swift tweeted a picture of Meredith, Perry tweeted back, “OH MY GOSH. Is this kitty for real?!?!” Then Swift wrote, “YES! And currently chasing her own tail. PS I miss you!” Pretty much every time Swift tweets a picture of the kitty, Perry responds. With things like, “’I want to cuddle that kitten so hard!” and “Uuuuuugggh give me heeeeer!!!” and then, “Stop with all that cuteness! Dang.”
