Taylor Swift got a new kitty, and guess what she named her?

Olivia Benson, as in Mariska Hargitay’s character on Law and Order.

The tiny white cat sits on Swift’s lap in an Instagram photo with the caption, “Meet Olivia Benson.”

Apparently Taylor Swift has been a fan of the popular crime television series for years. “I sit in my apartment and watch hours of that show,” she said in an interview with Teen Vogue a few years ago.

Mariska Hargitay has yet to comment on the name choice.

Olivia is Taylor Swift’s second cat. Her first feline friend is named after Ellen Pompeo’s Grey’s Anatomy character Meredith Grey. She’s a Scottish Fold cat who’s “friendly and fun and she’s perfect for the road because she doesn’t ever get freaked out,” Swift said in an interview with Us Weekly. “She’s awesome. She’s like one of those cats that give cats a good name. She doesn’t hide under furniture and get weird around people.”

I think Olivia is adorbs!
