Taylor Swift has had a summer filled with serious ups and downs. On the one hand, she started dating Tom Hiddleston, and they are quite adorable and happy and clearly very much already in love. New relationships are always great! We love love. We love Hiddleswift. Also, Tom’s butt was crowned Rear of the Year across the pond, so that was probs super exciting for the couple. Tay threw a star-studded, killer Fourth of July party, too, which gave us *serious* FOMO.

The matching patriotic one-pieces ~kill~ me, every time.

On the other hand, Taylor had to deal with the seemingly never-ending accusations of being called a “liar” by Kim Kardashian and Kanye West over Taylor’s alleged dishonesty regarding her knowledge of Kanye’s newest song “Famous.” Kim took it a step further and shared video footage of Kanye telling Taylor about portions of the song, in an attempt to discredit Taylor’s narrative.

In the aftermath of Kimye’s Snapchatapocalypse, T-Swift posted a photo of a note on Insta and Twitter, shutting down and refuting the accusations on July 18th, and then virtually vanished from social media for the rest of the month.

Until now.

Taylor’s back online, breaking her social media silence, and we’re thrilled that she seems to be moving on from this controversy, leaving all the haters in the dust.

Taylor hasn’t been super active on Twitter for a while now, for whatever reason, but she fairly regularly used to update her Instagram account (usually with pics of her fabulous parties, hang-outs with the dazzling crew of BFFs, and concerts). The T-Swift Instagram well ran dry over the past few weeks, save one super-duper throwback photo of teenaged Selena Gomez and Taylor, in honor of her friend’s 24th birthday.

Fittingly, Taylor has returned to us with an adorable cat video via Instagram Stories which, truly, is the best possible way to reemerge into the spotlight after a huge controversy. Who could possibly hate on a cat video?!

In the video, one of Taylor’s cats Olivia (notoriously named for Law & Order: SVU’s badass Detective Olivia Benson) is lounging around with Taylor on her bed. “What’s going on? You feeling less like a cat and more like a squirrel today?” Taylor jokes. When Olivia rears up on her hind legs (very squirrel-like indeed), Taylor deadpans, “Yep.” LOL!

And about an hour ago, Taylor posted an Instagram in honor of one of her besties, Karlie Kloss, who turned 24 today (happy birthday Karlie!).

Welcome back, Taylor! Now, let’s all move past this T-Swift/Kimye feud, please?
