Me-WOW, Mariska Hargitay.

It appears that Taylor Swift has welcomed a new cat, and named her fab feline addition after Hargitay’s most famous character: Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’s detective Olivia Benson.

On Wednesday, Swift shared an Instagram of a fluffy white kitten sitting sweetly in her lap with the simple caption, “Meet Olivia Benson.” No confirmation on whether or not the cutie is actually her kitty, though the rest of the Twitterverse seems to think so.

Hargitay’s Twitter feed, however, is so far mum on the matter, and we’re pretty certain that Swift’s other cat, beloved Scottish Fold Meredith has little to contribute to the kitty conversation either.

“She’s not impressed by anything,” Swift said on The View in 2012. “I’m like, ‘Look at this hotel suite, Meredith, this is crazy!’ She doesn’t care.”
