Taylor Swift’s love of cats is well documented. Her Scottish Fold cats Olivia Benson and Meredith Grey, as well as her Ragdoll Benjamin Button, are prominent figures on her Instagram account and they’ve done everything from make appearances in her music videos to pop up in Deadpool 2. They even have trademarked names and merch.
So, when Swift signed on to star in the filmic adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats, pretty much everyone agreed it was a sensible decision. So why, pray tell, did she not pay homage to her furry friends with her Cats New York premiere gown?
Don’t get us wrong. The newly 30-year-old singer looked incredible in an ornate red and black silk strapless ballgown. But again, it didn’t appear to include any cats in its floral print. A lost opportunity to pledge her allegiance, if we do say so ourselves.
