28 Times Taylor Swift's Cats Were The Real Stars Of Instagram

Tay's cat squad > pretty much everything else.

Taylor Swift has finally reached the 50 million follower mark on Instagram, solidifying her status as the untouchable queen of the social media site -- sorry, Kim Kardashian.

But she's got a pair of not-so-secret weapons in her arsenal of awesome that help ensure her continued status as the top star of the site, meow and forever: her ridiculously adorable cats, Meredith Grey and Olivia Benson.

See, whereas others post cute throwbacks, behind-the-scenes vacay pics and immaculate selfies to stir up the crowd, Tay knows it's her four-legged furbabies that really get the internet's feelspots going.

And Tay acknowledged that she owes this major milestone to the double kitty power she's got on tap by writing, "50 million followers!! Thanks so much guys. I'm pretty sure this is just because I have cute cats though. ?"

While Taylor's no social media slouch herself, this achievement probably does belong to the girls, judging by these particular moments of pawesome.

  1. That time Meredith Grey was *not* feeling the gym.
  2. And when Olivia went claws-out and destroyed some lithographs because she could.
  3. And then she passed out on a plane.
  4. And gave the whole morning a big "NOPE."
  5. When Livy watched "Meerkat Manor" on marathon and got REALLY confused.
  6. And when Meredith won the staring contest by default 'cause no one would dare challenge her.
  7. That moment when Olivia Benson started rethinking the whole fame thing.
  8. Then she just completely forgot how to cat.

  18. When they combined forces with head nuzzles and smooches, and almost broke the internet with adorable cat vibes.
