Taylor Swift jokes that cat owes her $56 million after scratching her thighs

Taylor Swift has joked her cat needs to cough up US$40 million (S$56 million) after she scratched her slim pins following reports she is planning to insure her legs for the eight-figure sum.

The 25-year-old singer has mocked a report she's planning to splash out the eight-figure sum on insurance for her slim pins by insisting her pet kitty Meredith will have to cough up the money after she viciously scratched her thigh over the weekend.

Alongside a photograph of the gash, Taylor wrote: "Great work Meredith I was just trying to love you and now you owe me 40 million dollars."

She later posted another photograph, showing the gash covered with a bandage that read "meOW", with the caption: "Couldn't help but make it into a pun, could I..."

The intense cat fight came just two weeks after a report emerged that the 'Black Space' hitmaker's management were trying to push her to take financial cover out on her enviable legs in order to protect her hugely successful career.

A source said at the time: "It seems like a ludicrous sum, but if something was to happen to her legs, Swift wouldn't be able to give her signature stage performances.

"Her US$200 million career would be in big trouble."

However, the blonde beauty - who kicks off her world tour in May - was believed to be "embarrassed" once she found out how much her legs were actually worth.

The insider added: "She thought her legs were possibly worth a million. But US$40 million shocked her. She's even a little embarrassed about it."
