Taylor Swift has accomplished many things in the past 25 years of her young life. She's become one of the top-selling artists of all time, she successfully challenged Apple (and won), but by far one of her most impressive feats is that she's somehow made being a cat lady cool.
For the majority of recent history, a cat lady has not been something you'd want to call yourself. The stereotypical "cat lady" is an old single spinster type of woman who's not necessarily all there in the mind department.

T-Swift essentially "swift-ed" the whole idea, embracing the cat lady moniker like a badge of honor. It has inspired people to rethink the cat lady label, and even happily adopt the title themselves.
Swift is known for frequently posting about and with her cats, Dr. Meredith Grey and Detective Olivia Benson, all over social media. Her cats are frequently spotted in her arms in paparazzi photos and have even made cameos in her musical videos and commercials.
With Swift being the reigning princess of pop, her influence has made it so that obsessing over your cat(s) is now more than just socially acceptable, it's cool. So cool in fact, people have begun showing their fondness for felines in their wardrobe.

And although you could argue that Swift isn't the sole reason for the immense uptick in cat lady pride, you can't deny all the good work she's doing for the cat lady cause.
