Swift’s kitten, however, is “allergic to joy”

Taylor Swift loves her cats. Taylor Swift’s cats love Taylor Swift … but sometimes they have a funny way of showing it.

On Saturday, Swift posted a picture of herself reuniting with her adorable cat Meredith, who looks, well, displeased.

“Meredith is allergic to joy,” Swift captioned the photo, in which she is beaming and Meredith offers a grimace, looking exceedingly uncomfortable. (Swift is wearing her new “Tay Tay” hoodie, which she has vowed to “wear forever.”)

Touring has been hard on Swift, who has trouble being away from Meredith and her other cat, Olivia, for extended periods of time.

While Meredith and her mom are back together, Swift recently had to settle for cuddle time with a giant cardboard cut-out of cat kid Olivia. (“When you can’t take your cats to Canada so you hug a cardboard version of them but it’s NOT THE SAME.”)
