Why were claws flying the way of Taylor Swift?

Before the country megastar stunned on the red carpet at the 2014 Met Gala in New York City, she battled one ferocious feline, her cat Meredith.

“That moment when your cat casually walks up, then abruptly ATTACKS your custom satin Oscar de la Renta gown during your fitting for Met Ball,” she tweeted.

The “Red” singer, who just notched four CMT Music Awards nominations, attended the annual event in a “blush satin faced organza gown with matte gold sequins, pearl beads, silver-lined seed beads, rose gold metallic threadwork leaves and organza petal embroidery,” according to E! Online.

Taylor later told Us Weekly wearing the gown is “a daydream realized.”
