Taylor Swift Explains Her Cat-Carrying Habit

Taylor Swift has been spotted carrying Olivia Benson the cat around on her arm twice in one week, and the habit was beginning to rub off on other celebrities (and basically build into one of the greatest mysteries of our time). In earth-shattering news, Taylor explained to “Access Hollywood” that the reason for the feline accessorizing is that Olivia hates spending time in her cat carrier. “She freaks out when she’s in there. So I was just like, ‘OK, all right, we’re gonna just do this!’…It was like a ten foot walk from my door to the car! What I thought was funny about those pictures is that, like, the cat is looking straight at the cameras!” So now we know for sure that Olivia is not a perfect robot-cat who never goes on a whiny scratching fest and that she has an untapped talent for modeling. Now that Taylor mentions it, that pink contraption behind her in the picture does look like a cat carrier wielded by an assistant. Now, only one question remains — where on earth is Meredith?
