After weeks of comfortably strolling towards eighty-year-old cat lady status, Taylor Swift began her sprint towards the big leagues. Now, Ellen DeGeneres has taken full advantage of Tay's passion by just throwing her off of that cat-loving cliff. On "Kitty Corner," the new show from Ellen and Taylor, she wears cat-eye glasses, in a cat-patterned vest, beneath a cat blanket, in front of framed photos of cats and a cat play house. The episode airs on Ellen today, should you want to witness the fall.
