Mystery solved! Taylor Swift‘s beloved cat, Meredith, made a triumphant return to the singer’s social media in a brand new video — well, sort of. Fans of the folklore songstress, 31, have always been expert detectives and decoders when it comes to spotting Easter Eggs in her songs, music videos, and social media.
But even the most eagle-eyed Swiftie couldn’t figure out why Meredith hadn’t been in any social media posts from the star. So, naturally, Taylor Swift intervened and explained what was going on with Meredith in her April 16 video post to Instagram.
“We’ve been hearing some rumors on the internet, recently…I mean, they’re not about you, Benj, but they’re about your sister,” Taylor Swift began her video, while holding her cat, Benjamin Button.
Taylor Swift then shared a slew of messages she’d seen from fans asking “girl, where is Meredith?” One fan even wrote a statement that read, “I’m getting worried for Meredith, we haven’t seen her in a while.”
Then Taylor Swift shared text to her video, which read, “The truth is, Meredith just HATES having her picture taken. So, yea. There it is, there you have it. That’s the explanation. She’s just a really private little cat,” Taylor explained.
