Taylor Swift's cat Olivia is a meerkat: An investigation
Darling, I'm a meerkat dressed like a cat
We still remember when Taylor Swift introduced her new kitten Olivia Benson to the world. The little Scottish Fold joined elder 'sister' Meredith Grey in their famous owner's home and has since become an Instagram phenomenon. Clearly the more social one between the two felines (Meredith doesn't like you, you or you), Olivia has one very obvious trait: she often sits around like a meerkat.
Even Taylor can't shake off her kitty's strange habit. Just hours ago, she posted a photo of Olivia the meerkat sitting, well, like this. And so we were prompted to search for more proof that Olivia is indeed part meerkat, if not one in disguise.
Look, she even uses her tail for balance, as do meerkats.
When she's trying not to be obvious about it, Olivia uses armrests to stand.
Standing upright is that easy for her.
We're pretty sure Olivia has better posture than most of us, as far as 'human postures' go.
Taylor doesn't need CCTV to help her catch Olivia being a meerkat. The flat-eared kitty does it all in the open.
To be honest, we'd need less proof to believe that meerkat blood runs in Olivia, but there are moments where she does normal cat things (these could just be a ruse to confuse humans, though).
Slouching; what else are couches for?
Getting along with the other cat of the house, Meredith, is something that only happened after a long time.
Her not-so-secret skill: catching treats.
Scratching and destroying your owner's belongings are very cat-like things to do. Well done, Olivia.
Finally, sleeping like a cat is a great way to send sceptics packing.
You may have us fooled, Olivia, but nothing makes the world a little more interesting than a meerkat cat.
