In June of 2014, Taylor got a new cat she named Olivia Benson after the character portrayed by Mariska Hargitay on Law & Order: SVU, one of Taylor's favorite television shows.
Like Meredith, Olivia Benson is a Scottish fold cat.
Olivia was featured in one of Taylor's Diet Coke commercials, and has also appeared in many of her Instagram videos/photos. She and Meredith even appeared in an Instagram photo taken by Taylor's then-boyfriend, Calvin Harris, which he captioned "Moment".
Olivia is seen at the beginning of the music video for Taylor's 2019 single, "ME!", alongside Olivia on a couch.
