Another day, another meme-ready Taylor Swift song. On Friday, Oct. 20, Swift released her new single "Gorgeous," and the internet had jokes at the ready. Whether you are deeply in love with the new anthem or are already loathing it, these memes & jokes about the cat lyric in Swift's "Gorgeous" are hard not to appreciate. Hey, if nothing else, "Look What You Made Me Do" proved that the new Taylor can laugh at herself, and "Gorgeous" is reminding the internet of this fact with the so-real-it-hurts line about stumbling home to your cats.
In "Gorgeous," Swift sings about longing for a beautiful man with deep blue eyes like the ocean (who could be anyone from Tom Hiddleston to Joe Alwyn, the jury is still out), and when this life ruiner doesn't go home with her, she finds solace with — who else — her beloved cats. Old Taylor would approve, and so does the internet, because honestly, this line is way too relatable for anyone who has ever been turned down by a crush.
Who hasn't had a "guess I'll just stumble home to my cats" moment? Even if you don't have any cats, it's a universal sentiment. And Twitter is having a ball with the meme-ready lyric. Forget trying to figure out who "Gorgeous" is about — the cats have officially stolen that poor dude's thunder. Because gorgeous guys are fleeting, but your cats will always be there to silently judge your life decisions and demand food.
One thing that won't earn you a judgmental glare from your feline companion? That would be laughing at these "Gorgeous" cat memes that are already taking over the interwebs.
Wait, Isn't The Old Taylor Dead?
Because this sounds an awful lot like something the old Taylor would say, new Taylor. And you better believe the internet noticed.

There are worse things in life than stumbling home to a fur baby. They're not a guy with baby blues you can drown in, but they're reliably awesome and super cuddly.
