Drake’s allegedly buying toys for Taylor Swift’s cats: ‘He’s going for it in a big way’

Is that velvet? 🌺

Remember last week, when one of our biggest concerns was whether Taylor Swift was going to make Drake wear an “I Heart T.S.” shirt? Good times. The last week of October, the speculation began about Drake and Tay-Tay. She made a special point of going to Drake’s birthday party, and they apparently seemed especially close and flirty. He even introduced Taylor to his mom, and posted the above Instagram, which is from Drake’s birthday party. Sources quickly said that Drake and Tay were actually just working together, not getting it on. But now sources are saying that Drake is trying to woo Taylor… but buying gifts for her cats, Olivia and Meredith.

Drake thinks Taylor Swift is the cat’s meow. Amidst rumors of both musical collaborations and romance, Rihanna’s former flame has reportedly been gifting Swift and her feline friends with some serious loot.

“Drake knows the way to Taylor’s heart and he’s going for it in a big way,” an insider recently told Hollywood Life. “He stopped in PetCo and went buck wild on cat accessories for Taylor. He went all out. He’s also preparing to send her this sick designer bag that she can put her cats in when she’s traveling.”

A source told E! News the pair, who have a combined 11 Grammy wins, 56 nominations and 7 chart-toppers between them, that “the music they have been wokring on is different,” but “very catchy. “Both are having a great time in the studio.”

And given Drake’s parade of presents for the “Wildest Dreams” singer, we don’t doubt it.

“It’s Drake being Drake and his way of letting her know that she’s good people and keeping her close to him,” the Hollywood Life source said. “He knows how much she adores her cats and Drake wants her to know that he adores her just as much.”

Yes, this is Hollywood Life by way of the NYDN, and yet… this sounds like something Drake would do, right? What do we know about Drake, for sure? That he’s a total cheeseball. That he’s the guy who will dance like a dork in a music video. That he’s always going to be a little bit extra. That he wears his heart on his sleeve. That he’s Mr. Sensitive. So of course I’ll believe that Drake buys cat toys for Olivia and Meredith. The quickest way to Tay’s heart is through her cats.

U ok bro?

    Jeez. Is everyone contractually obligated to date her?

  2. Alleycat says:

    I think the most shocking part of this story is that they have 11 Grammy wins and 56 nominations between them. I know their music is catchy, but not award winning. Also, I really don’t think this is happening. I believe they both like the attention this is getting them but they aren’t secretly dating.

  3. LiterallyaShambles says:


    I can’t live in a Trump America where Drake and Taylor Swift are a thing. It’s just too much

  4. Lama Bean says:

    I will not buy this unless Drake randomly pops up at the local hipster coffee shop here in Nashville.

  5. kri says:

    “He went buckwild in Petco” is phrase that will live in my heart forever. Ain’t publicity grand!! OTH, that cat’s pose is me when I have a hangover.

  6. Jess says:

    Even though I know thathat it’s probably a lie, I’m choosing to enjoy this lol.
    It’s what I need after this horrible week.
    And it sounds like something Drake would do

  7. JenB says:

    Previously I agreed that there is just no way a man can go from Rihanna to Swifty. But after this week, sure.
    Her cats and her charity are some her best qualities!

  8. Sage says:

    Drake loves big booty girls he’s not “dating” her.

  9. guest says:

    Well may be he can get that stick out of her arse……never seen a person who is as uptight as this wannabe superstar. Can’t believe that she destroyed Hiddles for me. Good old days……

  10. Lolo86lf says:

    Why do Taylor’s manager insist on making such publicity stunts? No one, absolutely no one believes that Drake and Taylor are interested in each other romantically. They are not each other’s type, although I think she should try a black man for a change.

    • Fiorella says:

      No idea if they are dating but I disagree on the type thing. People like to try/experience different things in dating, both in looks and personalities. They are both young. Harry dated blonde girls short and tall his age and young and now a girl who is not at all blond and is older than him. Scarlett went from that hot josh guy to Reynolds who seems nice but not hot to me, to Sean penn. k stew has a varied history too. i could go on. English men have been disappointing to Tay perhaps?

  11. Susannah says:

    I want that to be the way all men woo me from now on. I want a constant stream of gifts for Daisy, Elektra and Snickers (although Snickers will just steal them all eventually.)

  12. ElleBee says:

    It will be interesting to see how this turns out since both of them adopt the personality of whoever they are dating at the time.

  13. MI6 says:

    So he’s buying the pussy presents.
    Good luck with that.

  14. Tia Maria says:

    Maybe she’s just looking to marry him to get Canadian citizenship! Desperate times post election!

  15. Melody says:

    You don’t date Swifty. You rent her…with your dignity. When it’s all gone, she is too.

  16. kimbers says:


    April came earky

  17. Elisa the I. says:

    so his insta name is champagnepapi. O_O Based on that I’d say they deserve each other.

  18. jerkface says:

    He was buying toys for her WHAT now? hahaha Yeah buddy get you some. Gross! LOL

  19. BunnyBabe says:

    Buck wild at PetCo?! Are you kidding me? You better find your way to a posh Beverly Hills petstore immediately if you want to impress Taylor. C’mon man

  20. jerkface says:

    “Yo baby, want to come over and go buck wild in my PetCo?”
    Its the new Netflix and Chill.

  21. LinaLamont says:

    After Tuesday, I could use that cat picture. The expression is how I feel. (I don’t know anything about Swift, so, I don’t know which cat that is).

  22. GinT says:

    Is anyone buying these stunts and her “straightest girl in the world” act?? Anyone??? Personally, I am tired of her. There are more important things to worry about than her fame hungry ass. Just go away. Drake too.

  23. Sean says:

    I wonder what his boyfriend thinks of his spending?

  24. minx says:

    Isn’t he gay, and why is she always bearding?

  25. lightpurple says:

    She’ll find her way back to Tom, I know it will happen.

  26. Mylène - Montréal says:
