Taylor Swift Names Cat After "L&O" Character Olivia Benson
Jun. 19, 2014
(Undated) -- Taylor Swift's new kitten has the same name as a tough TV detective. The singer introduced her pet on Instagram Wednesday with the caption, "Meet Olivia Benson." A big fan of "Law & Order: SVU," Taylor named the cuddly ball of fur after Mariska Hargitay's character on the long running crime drama. The Instagram photo shows the tiny white kitten looking up at Taylor while sitting on the singer's lap. In a 2011 interview with "Us Weekly," Taylor revealed that her other cat Meredith was also inspired by a TV character. That would be Dr. Meredith Grey, played by Ellen Pompeo, on "Grey's Anatomy."
