Taylor Swift and Aziz Ansari pose with matching cat shirts and it’s what we needed today

If you woke up this election day concerned about the fate of America, Taylor Swift and Aziz Ansari are here for you. Queen of the squad Swift threw Lorde a birthday party and celebs like Lena Dunham, Karlie Kloss, Rachel Antonoff, Mae Whitman, and Ansari showed up to get their birthday celebration on.

While we might be bummed we couldn’t attend such an A-list party, we’ve got evidence of the epicness, thanks to the Instagram gods. And the epicness included Swift and Ansari bonding over matching cat shirts. That’s right. Cat shirts.

No, the pop princess and the comedian didn’t have the exact SAME cat shirt on, but they proved great minds think alike when it comes to feline-inspired clothing.


Swift and Ansari channeling their inner cats for this photo is pretty much the perfect encapsulation of the type of fun you’d want to have a birthday party. And the birthday girl looked to be having a grand time too.


As the host of this 20th birthday bash, Swift’s attire was key. Her classy cat shirt not only fit the whimsy of the event, but it was also totally in character since Swift is a known cat lover. She frequently posts about her adorable cats Meredith Grey and Olivia Benson on Instagram.



Despite his majestic snow leopard shirt. Ansari’s social media actually points to him possibly being more of a dog guy. (Don’t tell Swift!) He even offered his talents to Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls’ video series Heavy Petting to help raise awareness for pet adoption. Just listen to Ansari voice the cutie-pie Buddy the Maltese!


No matter what their levels of love for cats big and small are, this photo of two of our favorite celebs having fun with their matching cat shirts is just what we needed to see today. Because nothing says joy like the powers of Swift, Ansari, and cats combined.
