The boys who break Taylor Swift's heart are not all that different from cats when you think about it.
Charming, handsome, furry (we're looking at you, Jake Gyllenhaal), cunning, indignant ... you get the point. So it's no surprise Swift, mom to a kitty named Meredith, loves both.
But it's her unabashed ability to turn said boys into hit songs that's sending her to Sunday's Grammy Awards, where the four-time nominee is hoping to add some more accolades to her name. Her album Red, in all its tear-stained, girl-power glory, is up for album of the year and best country album.
Until Sunday, we'll be listening to our favorite cat lady's Grammy contender. But instead of dissecting each lyric to figure out which famous ex she's singing about, we'll leave the interpretations, track by track, up to these felines.

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, we'd like you to meet Perry, a cat recently found living in a Riverdale, N.J., sewer.
When Marcia Scott got a call from her friend about a sweet adult cat who'd taken up residence in a sewer, she just couldn't say no. The friend lured the feline out of the sewer, where he'd been hiding out as temperatures dipped into the single digits, and Scott made room for the "very friendly" pet at her Happy Cat Rescue, based in Albany, N.Y.

It's time to come clean. Here at PEOPLE Pets, there's a certain animal kingdom stereotype we've sometimes helped promulgate: That cats are jerks.
But in light of new evidence, we've decided to amend our stance. Turns out, cats aren't the only ones who can sometimes make life at home for their owners a living nightmare. Dogs are just as guilty of it. And the ones we've brought to your attention below, they might even be doing it on purpose.

The start of a New Year often means one familiar resolution: to get in shape. This year, PEOPLE is honoring five individuals who managed to lose half of their weight, but they're not the only ones worthy of some applause – or should we say ap-paws.
Over the past year, these three overweight animals also decided to get back on track (with a little help from their human friends) and shed their excess weight. Much like with their owners, obesity in pets can lead to a variety of health issues and complications, some of which were at fault for for the death of 33-lb. cat Sponge Bob in August 2012. Check out how this trio turned things around:

Just when you thought Puppy Bowl couldn't get any cuter ...
For the show's 10th year, Animal Planet has booked some very familiar faces to make an appearance: YouTube stars Keyboard Cat and Lil Bub. The musically inclined cat will perform during the halftime show, reports EW, while Lil Bub will "check in throughout the game."

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, we bring you George Bailey, a cat abandoned at the Helen Woodward Animal Center in Rancho Sante Fe, Calif., on Christmas Eve.
George's former owner didn't leave much explanation for why he had to let the black-haired feline go, just a heartbreaking note left alongside the cat.
"I cannot take care of him anymore," the anonymous letter read. "He is a great indoor/outdoor cat that loves people ... I didn't know what to do with him and I know you are a no-kill shelter. I'm sorry."
