Taylor Swift suffered a fashion mishap on Monday (05May14) as her pet cat attacked her as she was getting ready for New York's Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The country singer was being fitted when her manic moggy Meredith got her claws out - literally!

Swift tweeted, "That moment when your cat casually walks up, then abruptly Attacks your custom satin Oscar de la Renta gown during your fitting for (the) Met Ball."

The Love Story star is expected to show up on the red carpet in the gown this evening. It is not known if any damage the cat did has prompted the singer to rethink her outfit.
