Taylor Swift is not having her cats Meredith Grey and Olivia Benson vet potential boyfriends, despite a completely ridiculous tabloid story that claims the singer is “putting her love life firmly in the paws” of her beloved pets.

Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this story, which first appeared in the pages of OK!, a magazine that has spent years making up rumors about Swift’s love life in a desperate attempt to gloss over the fact that its sources are clueless.

A fake insider tells OK!, “Taylor no longer trusts her own instincts with men. So if she meets a guy, the cats have to meet him, too. She’s not walking her cats around for exercise… they’re her man-meter.” The outlet claims that any suitor who “elicits hisses” from Swift’s pets or “lacks chemistry” with them will be “struck from the list” of would-be boyfriends.

Because Swift has a well-documented passion for cats, OK! apparently thinks it can get away with this drivel, except the timing of this story couldn’t be worse, with Swift repeatedly stating that she’s not even looking for a boyfriend at the moment, let alone one who charms her pets. Regardless, a source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop the story is “amusing but completely stupid and wrong.”
