Taylor Swift adopts new kitten

Taylor Swift has added another kitten to her brood and named her new pet after one of her favorite TV characters.

The Love Story hitmaker introduced her new cat on Instagram.com on Wednesday (18Jun14), showing off a tiny white kitten, which sits in her lap.

Swift added in a caption, "Meet Olivia Benson," a name in honor of Mariska Hargitay's detective character on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, which the singer has previously cited as one of her favorite TV shows.

She told Teen Vogue, "If I could have dinner with anyone it would be Detective Olivia Benson from Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. I sit in my apartment and watch hours of that show. So I sort of feel like me and Olivia are BFFs (best friends forever)."

The kitten joins Swift's other beloved cat, Meredith, who was named after Gray's Anatomy surgeon Meredith Gray, played by Ellen Pompeo.
