‘Aunt Taylor’ Swift Meets Jonathan Van Ness’ Cat Genevieve and ‘the Other Babies’
Taylor Swift and Jonathan Van Ness are both hardcore cat parents, so it only makes sense that the pop star would be "aunt" to the Queer Eye's feline family.
On Thursday (October 10), Van Ness revealed that "Aunt Taylor" came to meet his cat Genevieve and "the other babies" the night before, posting a sweet gallery of photos showing Swift bonding with her niece Genevieve.
The singer was clearly kitten smitten, responding to the post with a Game of Thrones reference. "Genevieve of the House Van Ness, First of Her Name, the Unscratched, Queen of Meows and nose boops, Catleesi of the East River, Breaker of Wine Glasses, and Mother of hairballs."
Van Ness loved her comment so much, he posted it on his Instagram story. "F--k me up with this caption. I wasn't ready," he wrote.

Though things are happy now, Van Ness suffered a tragedy over the summer when his cat Bug fatally fell out of his window when he was asleep.
"I’m hurting so bad today I can’t put it into words, for anyone else experiencing grief & loss, I’m with you," he wrote at the time. " I’m sharing this mainly because if you see me around the next few days I won’t be my typical happy self and that’s okay. Not sure how I’m going to make this loss mean something more but in the meantime, please make a donation to an animal shelter near you."
