In a purr-fectly unexpected turn of events, Taylor Swift’s recent feature as Time’s Person of the Year sparked a viral sensation on TikTok, as fans and cat enthusiasts alike attempted to recreate the iconic cover moment featuring the pop icon and her Ragdoll cat, Benjamin Button.


Swifties and cat lovers quickly embraced the trend under the hashtag #taylorswiftcattrend, turning the internet into a canvas for creative cat compositions. From meticulous recreations to hilarious attempts, the trend has amassed an impressive 3.2 million views, showcasing the internet’s love for both Taylor Swift and our feline friends.

One notable participant, @_hannahmichelle13, not only replicated Swift’s all-black ensemble but also added a touch of glamour with a bold red lip.

The internet is filled with amusing videos of cat owners attempting to emulate Taylor Swift’s timeless cover. From cats resisting the photo shoot by digging their claws into their owners to others choosing to stand their ground, the unpredictable nature of cats adds an entertaining twist to the trend. Some users, like @otismcgmcg, even went as far as rating their cats based on photogenic qualities, turning the challenge into a lighthearted competition.

Taylor Swift, who is known for her love of cats, particularly Ragdolls like Benjamin, brought her furry companion to the set for a reason. Ragdolls are known for their cuddly nature and tendency to go limp when held, making them ideal for such photoshoots. Yet, cat owners of various breeds have taken up the challenge, showcasing their own beloved pets in the process.

As the trend continues to spread across social media, one thing is clear – cats everywhere may be cursing Taylor Swift for setting this trend in motion. Whether a cat willingly complies or decides to assert its independence, the #taylorswiftcattrend has undoubtedly become a delightful and amusing spectacle on the internet, bringing joy to Swifties and cat enthusiasts alike.
