Taylor met Benjamin on the set of her music video and immediately fell in love with him. The handler of the cat told Taylor that Benjamin was a “purr box.” Taylor then asked the handler if she can have him, to which the handler responded with, “He is available.” Taylor knew then that she needed to adopt him. Throughout the shooting of the music video, Taylor kept mentioning how adorable she thought Benjamin was, saying that she would watch the music video and think about how that was the first time she saw him.
Taylor debuted Benjamin on Instagram on Friday, April 26, 2019. “And then there were three…” she captioned the picture, which showed the adorable, mostly white animal laying next to her.
