Olivia Benson is one of Taylor Swift's cats. In June of 2014, she was adopted as Taylor's second cat, named Olivia Benson after the character portrayed by Mariska Hargitay on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, one of Taylor's favorite television shows.

She is the younger "sister" to Meredith Grey, and older "sister" to Benjamin Button.

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 was a feature in Taylor's music video for "Blank Space", featured in the scenes with Taylor sitting on the bed of her mansion. She and Meredith even appeared in an Instagram photo taken by Taylor's then-boyfriend, Calvin Harris, which he captioned "Moment". On Taylor Swift's now unavailable mobile app The Swift Life, there was a collection of Taymojis featuring Olivia. Olivia is seen at the beginning of the music video for Taylor's 2019 single, "ME!", alongside Meredith on a couch.
