- Taylor Swift (opens in new tab) and Joe Alwyn (opens in new tab) famously keep their relationship ultra-private, rarely speaking about each other or appearing together in public.
- But Alwyn just dropped a major indicator that the couple are in quarantine together.
- On his Instagram story, he shared a series of photos of Swift's (opens in new tab) cat, Benjamin Button.

Why are we looking at Benjamin, aside from the evergreen fact that he is a perfect angel? Well, Joe Alwyn posted a series of photos of one perfectly angelic, very familiar cat on his Instagram story Monday. Behold:
The obvious conclusion? At the very least, Alwyn and Benjamin Button are quarantining together, but it seems pretty likely that Swift's there too.
Neither Swift nor Alwyn has spoken much about their relationship, though Swift said in her Netflix documentary, Miss Americana, that it was Alwyn's "wonderful, normal, balanced kind of life" (opens in new tab) that appealed to her. In a 2019 Guardian interview, Swift explained why she doesn't speak publicly about her boyfriend. "I’ve learned that if I do, people think it’s up for discussion, and our relationship isn’t up for discussion," she said. "That’s where the boundary is, and that’s where my life has become manageable. I really want to keep it feeling manageable."
Alwyn, meanwhile, has said next to nothing about Swift, commenting only on how he feels about being her muse. "It's flattering," he told (opens in new tab) the Sunday Times. Cute!
