It's National Cat Day: Here Are Our Favorite Celebrity Cat Fans

It's National Cat Day: Here Are Our Favorite Celebrity Cat Fans

Taylor Swift

We're celebrating National Cat Day with our favorite celebrities and their feline friends.

From Taylor Swift to Robert Downey Jr., celebrities are obsessed with their furry friends and aren't afraid to show it.

Taylor Swift

The queen of cats! Taylor Swift is known for being the ultimate cat mom and even asks her cat, Meredith Grey, for advice. These two and her other cats, Olivia Benson and Benjamin Button, can always be seen on Swift's Instagram lounging around and having a chill time.

Do these names sound familiar? Swift named her cats based off of famous film and television characters: Meredith Grey from Grey's Anatomy, Olivia Benson from Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and Benjamin Button from The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Ricky Gervais

If Taylor Swift is the queen of cats, then Ricky Gervais is king. Comedian Gervais has basically dedicated his entire Instagram page to his cat, Pickle. Pickle takes up more of Gervais's feed than Gervais!

Mandy Moore

Actress and singer Mandy Moore, most known for her role as Rebecca in This Is Us, always plays with her cat Peanut. In this post, Moore can be seen hanging out with her husband, singer Taylor Goldsmith, and Peanut at home.

Alison Brie

Alison Brie, known for her role as Annie in Community and Ruth in GLOW, welcomed two new kitties in August. Brie is known for being quite the cat mom and introduced Otis and Max to her family through MaeDay Rescue, a Los Angeles rescue. Brie co-parents these kitties with husband, Dave Franco.

Nikki Reed and Ian Somerholder

Nikki Reed from the Twilight saga and her husband Ian Somerhalder from The Vampire Diaries spend quality family time with their feline friend, Sohalia, and daughter, Bodhi. These two adopted their cat from Rockdale County Animal Shelter in Conyers, Georgia and urge others to consider adopting a pet.

Lea Michele

Lea Michele, widely known for her role as Rachel Berry in Glee, recently welcomed her son to the world in August, but this hasn't stopped her from still posting her other furry baby, Sheila.


Singer Kesha and her cat Mr. Peeps go way back. These two met while Mr. Peeps was in a garbage can outside of the club Kesha was at. Kesha rescued Mr. Peeps and the rest is history.

Robert Downey Jr.

Robert Downey Jr. is an animal lover all around. Iron Man and Dr. Dolittle himself is always surrounded by cats, dogs, llamas, and more!

Kat Dennings

Kat Dennings from Dollface and 2 Broke Girls advocates for pet adoption consistently. She can be seen with her cat Millie as they are cuddling and loving each other!

Dennings can be seen in her role as Darcy Lewis in the new Disney+ series, WandaVision.

Kate Beckinsale

Kate Beckinsale, known for her role as Selene in the Underworld movies, relaxes with one of her two cats as its nails take the spotlight of this photo. Beckinsale has two cats, Persians Willow and Clive.

We hope you and your furry friends are staying happy and safe today and Happy National Cat Day to all!
