Olivia Benson joins Swift’s other cat, Meredith, who reminded fans that she wanted to be shown some love too on her fictional Twitter page. “Love me too pls,” she wrote.

It seems Swift is following a theme, as she named Meredith after her favorite character from ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy - Ellen Pompeo’s character Meredith Grey.

She said back in 2011, "Her name is Meredith -- Meredith Grey because she's a gray cat, and because I love Grey's Anatomy!"

As we previously reported, Swift was in the headlines this week when three people were arrested outside her Rhode Island beach house on Sunday after they allegedly threw beer bottles at the country star’s security.
