Like Olivia Benson, Meredith Grey is a Scottish fold cat and named after a TV character, in this it’s Ellen Pompeo’s character of the same name from Grey’s Anatomy. She got Meredith on Halloween 2011 and she’s been featured in plenty of photos and videos from Taylor.
Olivia Benson was a Scottish fold kitten picked up by Taylor in June 2014. Named in honor of the fictional Sergeant and Commanding Officer played by Mariska Hargitay on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, you could say this is the official Olivia Benson. Safe to say Taylor Swift is a fan of the popular TV series. While most cats live a mundane life of eating, sleeping, and soaking up attention, this cat has done more in its lifetime than 99% of the world. As if flying first class, sitting backstage at a Swift concert, or appearing in a music video and Diet Coke commercial wasn’t enough, the real Olivia Benson has even met her TV counterpart, Olivia Benson. To top it all off, this even cat has a modelling contract. Due to her endorsements and high profile lifestyle, Olivia Benson is estimated to be worth $97 million.
Taylor Swift is known as ‘Swifty’ in some circles. She’s known to love cats, specifically Scottish Folds. Her cats Meredith Grey, Olivia Benson and Benjamin Button are semi-famous. Taylor gained international fame with her music career and eventually got into acting, notably in the live action movie Cats. She has won numerous awards.
Taylor Swift’s Career
Taylor Swift was born December 13, 1989 and is worth an estimated $250 million. She is one of the most popular pop music artists in the last 10 years, with a series of massively successful albums and concert tours. Selling over 40 million albums and 130 million single downloads, her commercial success is matched by her critical acclaim with 10 Grammy Awards, 23 Billboard Music Awards, 19 American Music Awards and many more. She is currently dating Joe Alwyn as of 2021.
Taylor Swift is well known and highly followed on all social networks by her admittedly rabid fanbase. And, besides Taylor’s long and successful career, her cats have ALSO held a spot on screen during their cameo for Ryan Reynolds‘ Deadpool 2.
Taylor Swift’s Cats
Almost as astonishing as the success of her career are the lives of Taylor Swift’s three cats: Meredith Grey, Olivia Benson, and Benjamin Button. All three of them make an appearance in Swift’s “ME!” music video and are referenced in her song “Gorgeous”.
Meredith and Olivia hold a competitive rank on the Pet Rich List with a net worth of $97 million each (yes, EACH). Swift has done a heck of a job capitalizing on her kitties, even trademarking each of their names for merchandise including clothing, housewares, accessories, luggage, toys and more! She also has two Dobermans, Baby and Bug, but they keep a much lower profile.
