Our “Wildest Dreams” have officially come true! Madame Tussauds San Francisco unveiled their new wax figure of Taylor Swift on Wednesday, Nov. 8, and we’re honestly speechless. Why? No, not because of the sculpture’s eerily identical appearance to the 27-year-old pop star. We’re more impressed with the fact that T. Swift’s wax likeness is currently covered in adorable — and adoptable! — kittens.

Madame Tussauds teamed up with the Give Me Shelter Cat Rescue for a launch featuring cats who are looking for forever-homes. According to the San Fransisco location’s general manager, Dalia Goldgor, Madame Tussauds was inspired to collaborate with the cat adoption agency because of Tay’s unwavering love for her own Insta-famous feline friends, Meredith and Olivia.
“As huge fans of Taylor’s, we really wanted to have some fun with this launch,” she said in a statement. “Anyone who follows her on Instagram knows Taylor is a huge cat-lover so this was a very fitting, fun and furry way to celebrate her new figure and upcoming album [Reputation].”
Most of the cats featured in new photos with Taylor’s statue are adoptable through Give Me Shelter Cat Rescue, which holds adoption events every Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 4 p.m. at Petco on Sloat Blvd. and Petco at the Petrero Center in San Fran. Of course, Taylor has never been shy about her love for all things cat-related.
During a November 2014 appearance on Live! With Kelly and Michael, the “Call It What You Want” singer said that she is not worried about being labeled a “crazy cat lady.” “I kind of talked to my friends about it, and before I got the second cat, I was really kind of canvasing everyone I knew…” she said at the time. “[But] they told me three cats is a ‘cat lady,’ two cats is a party!”
