If you take one look at Taylor Swift’s Instagram page, you’ll see it’s littered with sweet photos of her cats, Olivia Benson and Meredith Grey. In fact, Taylor’s got an online store featuring shirts, patches, pins, and other flair fashioned after these two kitties AND she’s starring in the film production of Cats. A cat lady through and through!


4 .Grace Coddington


Grace Coddington, the creative director of Vogue magazine, is the fiercest cat lady there is! Cats often serve as muse to her iconic work, including her own purrsonal felines Pumpkin and Blanket.


3. Carole Lombard


The actress Carole Lombard adored animals of all kinds, but she and husband Clark Gable had a soft spot for cats. Her striking beauty made her the perfect cover girl for Diane Lovejoy’s Cat Lady Chic.


2. Kesha

Like Taylor, Kesha’s feline affections are overly evident on her Instagram where the singer frequently features her kitties Charlie, Mr. Peep$, and Queso. Feast your eyes on this amazing family portrait! The kitty love is palpable.


1. Freddie Mercury


Freddie Mercury an honorary cat lady? You better believe it! According to those who knew him, Freddie treated every single one of his kitties like they were his children… all 10 of them. Yes, ten: Tiffany, Dorothy, Delilah, Goliath, Lily, Miko, Oscar, Romeo, Tom and Jerry.
