We all know that Taylor Swift loves cats, so it almost felt like fate when the pop titan met her new kitten, Benjamin Button, on the set of her record-breaking video for "ME!" featuring Panic! At the Disco's Brendon Urie.
On Tuesday (April 30), Swift uploaded a behind-the-scenes featurette to her YouTube, which offered viewers with her first-time encounter with the mini-feline. In the clip, the 29-year-old star asks if there's a cat on-set of the project, marking the very first step in their meeting. Once she holds him in her arms, the connection is clear. "He's a purr box. He purrs a lot," a crew member tells the star, before admitting that he is available for adoption. "I've never had a cat love people this much. Look how sweet he is," Swift says as she plays with him on-set of the video. "I know kittens are cute, but that kitten's special."
As we saw in the splashy Dave Meyers-directed clip, the cat also made an official debut in the video. Benjamin Button joins the pop titan's feline family of two: Olivia Benson and Dr. Meredith Grey. "You're gonna have two sisters. They're going to be really, really nice to you. Maybe not at first, but that's just because they're jealous," she says at the end of the video.
In related news, Swift is set to perform at the 2019 Wango Tango presented by JUVÉDERM Collection of Fillers on June 1st in Los Angeles, alongside a lineup of superstar artists to help kick off the summer.
