Taylor Swift and her cat Meredith both seem to have a soft spot for ball gowns — which Swift found out with near-disastrous consequences the night of the Met Gala, when Meredith went after her gown.

“I’ve never seen more fashionable people lose their composure quicker than when a cat walks up to a satin, custom Oscar de la Renta gown and then decides to make a home inside of it,” the singer told PEOPLE of the cat’s Met Gala antics while at the Keds Style Icons Event at Nordstrom at The Americana at Brand.

“She just passed, dug her claws in and started to roll … like when you see a crocodile attack an antelope on National Geographic,” explained the star, 24. “That’s what she tried to do to the dress.”

Luckily, Swift’s little ball of fur — who “fancies herself as quite a hunter” — didn’t cause any real damage to the “Red” singer’s frock. Said Swift, laughing, “She’s a chubby housecat. She’s not very strong!”

Aside from the near feline-fashion disaster, the rest of the getting-ready process for fashion’s biggest night went off without a hitch.

“I got ready with Karlie [Kloss],” Swift said. “We were both wearing Oscar de la Renta, and we kind of shared a hair girl and got ready in a hotel room. It was so much fun getting ready with one of your best friends.”

Has your pet caused any near fashion disasters? Would you have killed to get an invite to Swift and Kloss’s pre-party? Weigh in below!

“Shared a hair girl”?!?!?!?!? A trained and licensed professional is referred to as a “hair girl’?!?!?? Why not just call her your minion.

Too funny!

Way to belittle someone who is a professional hair styler. It’s also hard to “share” a human being, she probably should have said they were even styled by the same person. It sounds less passive about a persons career.

Ugghh, she’s annoying

If you look at little Meredith’s mouth she has FANGS on the inside of her mouth. Do not underestimate little Meredith again!
