Taylor Swift has made a major impression on the lives of millions of people around the world, but what influences the pop singer in her own life?

As E! News reported, the “Blank Space” singer recently opened up about the three most influential factors in her life in a new video for TIME, and taking the top spot are some furry four-legged friends.

“Number one for me, most influential factor in my life is cats,” the 29-year-old explained.

While her choice may seem odd to some, Swifties know how great a role the felines play in the singer’s life. Taylor Swift has two cats, Olivia and Meredith, who are incredibly special to her. They felines even have their own highlight reel on her widely-followed Instagram account.

“I have cats. I’m obsessed with them. They’re just a real joy to live with,” she told the publication. “I love my cats so much that when a role came up in a movie called Cats I just thought that I had to do this. This is my calling in life to do this for the ladies.”

But the reasoning behind her biggest influence goes beyond the fact that she has two of her own.

“Cats are just really cool. They’re really great. They’re very dignified. They’re independent,” she said of her favorite animal. “They’re very capable of dealing with their own life and if you fit into that on that day, they’ll make some time for you maybe.”

“I just really respect it,” she added.

Taylor’s “purr-fect” pets have also lent a paw in the build up towards a special announcement that the singer has in store for her millions of fans. For the last two weeks, the singer has been teasing the date April 26 on both her Twitter and Instagram accounts, leading many to believe that her highly-anticipated seventh studio album is getting ready to drop sometime in the next 24 hours.

Along with a special appearance from her feline friends, hearts and pastel colors have also been a common theme as of late. Everything from her social media posts to her clothing choices have been drenched in these common factors over the last few weeks.

On Tuesday night, the singer was honored at the TIME 100 gala, which celebrates the magazine’s “100 Most Influential People” issue. Swift stepped onto the red carpet in a stunning pastel pink and yellow gown that exuded some serious “Love Story” vibes.
