2023 MTV VMA Winners: Meet Their Celebrity Pets!

The 2023 MTV Video Music Awards have wrapped up with plenty of hype and controversies surrounding it. But here at Celebrity Pets, we’re not about gossip – The only tea we’re sipping is literally with our pets at home. So our priority is to share what proud pets the 2023 winners have cuddled up at their homes! (Note: if any winners aren’t listed below, they sadly don’t have any pets)

Taylor Swift – Three cats (and two dogs)

Taylor Swift swept the VMAs with five total, including Video of the Year, Song of the Year, and Artist of the Year. So she has one to give to each of her five pets to play with! Taylor is an extremely proud cat mom, with her three cats all having A-list celeb status themselves. (her kitty Olivia Benson is considered one of the richest celebrity pets, with an estimated net worth of $97 million!) But people often forget she also has two min Doberman Pinschers, that don’t see much of the spotlight. Meet her whole fur family here.
