Taylor Swift caused a tizzy on Instagram when she posted a photo of her new white kitten, whom she's named Olivia Benson after the Law & Order: SVU character played by Mariska Hargitay. Look at those tiny paws!

Why Law & Order? Taylor, who was just in Kuala Lumpur mid last week once said that she can sit and watch the show for hours, and "so I sort of feel like me and Olivia are BFFs."

She is yet to reveal if she's introduced baby Olivia to her Scottish Fold, Meredith Grey (named after the titular character from medical drama Grey's Anatomy). We're not sure how the grey feline would take the new addition to the family, but according to the Taylor's BFF Ed Sheeran, Meredith "doesn't like anyone."

"There's moments when she doesn't even like Taylor. She's just a very ungrateful cat. She just expects it to come to her and if it doesn't then she'll just glare at you," the British singer said.

However, Taylor says otherwise. "[Meredith is] awesome. She's like one of those cats that give cats a good name. She doesn't hide under furniture and get weird around people. She's really friendly and fun and she's perfect for the road because she doesn't ever get freaked out."
