Is Taylor Swift in cats

Taylor Swift: Cat is called like a TV cop

Musician Taylor Swift named her new kitten after a television investigator - Olivia Benson from Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

Taylor Swift, 24, is excited about her new kitten, who has a special name.

The new addition to the singer's house ("Love Story") was named after the "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" character "Olivia Benson" and the blonde introduced the white ball of fur to her Instagram fan base on Wednesday evening (June 18) . "This is Olivia Benson," she wrote, referring to TV actress Mariska Hargitay, 50, who played the said detective on the hit show. The snapshot shows Taylor gazing lovingly at the kitten she is carrying on her lap. Within minutes, the musician with the picture secured a number of comments and likes from followers who are enthusiastic about the new addition with the blue eyes.

The artist seems to have a weakness for naming her animals after television characters. Her other cat's name pays homage to Grey's Anatomy doctor Meredith Gray.

While Taylor is now adding a new animal to her pack, the star appears to have no plans to take more free time. It was recently reported that the Grammy-winning songwriter, who is reportedly working on a sequel to her 2012 record "Red," is eager to make a name for herself in Hollywood. The country singer was allowed to practice a bit with small roles in the romantic comedy "Valentine's Day" and in the hit series "New Girl". Apparently she now feels ready to take the next step. "Taylor is dying to be a movie star," an insider tucked Radar Online this month. "She wants to prove herself as an actress and not just be seen as a singer who gets involved in films a little." It seems she has a strong will and will continue to tackle the project this year. At the side of cinema icon Meryl Streep (64, "Die Eiserne Lady") Taylor Swift will soon be seen in the sci-fi production "The Giver".
