Meredith, who has her own Twitter account and 11,000 followers no less, was also named after a TV show.
‘Her name is Meredith Grey because she’s a gray cat, and because I love Grey’s Anatomy,’ Taylor told Us Weekly, referring to Ellen Pompeo’s character on the ABC medical drama.
‘She’s awesome. She’s like one of those cats that give cats a good name. She doesn’t hide under furniture and get weird around people.
‘She’s really friendly and fun and she’s perfect for the road because she doesn’t ever get freaked out. So I’m really glad that she has a cool personality.’
