OMG, adorable alert! Taylor Swift posted a photo of a never-before-seen, teeny-tiny kitten on June 18. The adorable kitties name? Olivia Benson, just like the famous ‘Law & Order: SVU’ character. It looks like Taylor has adopted the kitten — here’s why!
It seems like Taylor Swift, 24, has added another cat into her life. Taylor is already the mom to Meredith, an adorable Scottish Fold cat that the singer adopted in November, 2011. Taylor posted a photo of herself on Instagram on June 18 with a cute white-fur, blue-eyed kitten sitting on her lap and looking up into her eyes. Is Taylor now a cat mom of two?
Taylor Swift: Singer Poses With A New Cat Named Olivia Benson
Alongside her Instagram photo, Taylor captioned: “Meet Olivia Benson.” How sweet! Taylor clearly named the new feline friend after her all-time favorite TV character. “Detective Olivia Benson from Law & Order S.V.U,” Taylor once revealed to Teen Vogue about who she wished she could have dinner with. “I sit in my apartment and watch hours of that show. So I sort of feel like me and Olivia are BFFs.” We love the name!
We know the Instagram photo of Taylor with the kitty was taken today — we just spotted Taylor walking around New York City today in the outfit featured in the photo.
It’s fitting that Taylor named her new kitten after a TV character since she did the same with Meredith. “Her name is Meredith — Meredith Grey because she’s a gray cat, and because I love Grey’s Anatomy,” Taylor revealed to Us Weekly. We love that Taylor’s keeping the TV character tradition with this naming of her newest pet!
Taylor Swift: Justin Bieber Hurting Her Friendship With Selena Gomez
We gotta wonder if Taylor’s adopting the new kitty for company since she’s not spending much time with Selena Gomez now that Sel’s back with Justin Bieber. “Taylor and Selena are still friends even though she went back to Justin,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com. “But Taylor has set some boundaries which include no talking about Justin.” Taylor’s living in New York City right now, while Sel’s spending time with Justin in Los Angeles.
We can’t wait to see the next adorable photo Taylor posts of Olivia Benson! What do YOU think of Tay’s new pet, HollywoodLifers? Let us know in the comments below!
