Did You Catch Deadpool 2's Subtle Taylor Swift Homage?

Taylor Swift's squad runs deep — so deep, in fact, that she pops up where you'd least expect her, like in the middle of Deadpool 2. Swifties in the audience of the Ryan Reynold's sequel got a furry surprise when they noticed that Swift's two cats, Meredith and Olivia, appeared on a shirt worn by Deadpool in the film.
Spotted by BuzzFeed, Reynold's character sports a shirt that reads "Olivia and Meredith, Friends Furrrever" along with a graphic of the two felines.
While this may seem random, it's not that surprising considering Reynolds' snuck in a number of other tongue-in-cheek references, including one to his wife, Blake Lively. Plus, Swift and Reynolds and Lively go way back. In fact, it's the voice of Reynolds' and Lively's daughter James in the opening of Swift's song "Gorgeous." Swift and Lively's friendship was well-documented on social media before Swift cleared all of her Instagram posts ahead of Reputation, and Swift even once dressed up as Deadpool for Halloween back in 2016. Safe to say, she's a fan of the franchise, and clearly, the franchise is a fan of her. And especially a fan of Olivia and Meredith.

For context, here they both are in one of my favorite of Tay's Instagram posts:

In this house, there is no correct or incorrect way to relax.

You can see the shirt very briefly in action in the trailer:
The next question is: How can I buy an Olivia/Meredith shirt of my own?
