Olivia Benson is a character on the popular show, Law & Order: SVU, played by the lovely and talented Mariska Hargitay.

Olivia Benson is also Taylor Swift's cat.

Olivia Benson the person posting pictures of herself and tagging the owner of Olivia Benson the cat is the essence of why we all love social media.

Taylor Swift had an absolute fan girl freakout when Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), Meredith being the name of her other cat and also a person, posted a pic on Instagram together.

Then, they tagged Taylor Swift, and the world ended for her.

The caption reads, "This one goes out to @TaylorSwift13 @taylorswift #CatsOutOfTheBag #NFL #NationalFelineLeague #MeowMeow #CatsMeow."

Taylor's reply to the Olivia Benson and Meredith Grey pic speaks for itself:


It's just so funny how a person can be so famous and yet so starstruck at the same time!

This isn't even the first time that Olivia Benson, the person, sent out a pic to Taylor swift involving Olivia Benson, the cat.

The hashtags themselves are worth reprinting the caption, which reads, "@taylorswift this came in the mail #WrongAddress #GotThisByCatccident #DontHaveACatniption #Collared #GonnaWearItAnyway #CatsOuttaTheBag #MeowliviaBenson #ScratchThat #PurrrfectName #TaylorMade #3MonthsLater #ALittleLateToThePawty #ThisCollarNeedsACat
#PawAndOrder #OliviaBensonPetDetective."

Hehe, Paw & Order. I wish that was a real show!

What do you think of the cat-tastic pics from the real Olivia Benson to Taylor Swift?
