<p><a href="https://ift.tt/8IygZwV Swift</a> fans know that the singer is obsessed with her three pet cats – to the point that she even appeared in <a href="https://ift.tt/ySRud1I movie <em>Cats</em></a>. Here’s everything Swifties need to know about the singer’s cats, Meredith Grey, Olivia Benson, and Benjamin Button.</p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-full"><img loading="lazy" width="1200" height="893" src="https://ift.tt/tf2WGJe" alt="Taylor Swift, who has three pet cats, poses at the premiere of "Cats."" class="wp-image-3128224" srcset="https://ift.tt/tf2WGJe 1200w, https://ift.tt/IoVUCTD 640w, https://ift.tt/uOxpk9i 768w, https://ift.tt/BPECv23 1024w, https://ift.tt/38Ofv2m 81w, https://ift.tt/vcFLxDs 150w" sizes="(max-width: 1200px) 100vw, 1200px" /><figcaption>Taylor Swift | Bruce Glikas/FilmMagic</figcaption></figure> <h2 id="h-taylor-swift-s-cat-meredith-grey-is-really-private">Taylor Swift’s cat Meredith Grey is ‘really private’</h2> <p>Singer Taylor Swift got her first Scottish Fold cat on Halloween 2011. She named the cat Meredith Grey after the titular star of the <a href="https://ift.tt/QcvNsSw show <em>Grey’s Anatomy</em></a>, portrayed by <a href="https://ift.tt/haSTQ9O Ellen Pompeo</a>. </p> <p>“Meredith is one of the best cats,” Swift once said of her pet (per <a href="https://ift.tt/IUKhi8k" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Inquisitr</a>). “She doesn’t leave fur or fur balls and she is never aggressive or afraid of being around people.” </p> <p>Meredith Grey occasionally shows up in Swift’s music videos, but besides those appearances, fans don’t see her much. In April 2021, the singer shared an <a href="https://ift.tt/0hHOI2i" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Instagram</a> video about why she doesn’t post many photos of her first cat. </p> <p>“She’s just a really private little cat,” Swift explained in the clip. “She likes her business kept to herself. She doesn’t like a camera shoved in her face, and who can blame her. So there’s your update on Meredith.”</p> <figure class="wp-block-embed is-type-rich is-provider-twitter wp-block-embed-twitter"><div class="wp-block-embed__wrapper"> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-width="550" data-dnt="true"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Which One Of Taylor Swift's Cats Are You? <a href="https://ift.tt/hvmbYRZ> <a href="https://t.co/AweIg6QNip">pic.twitter.com/AweIg6QNip</a></p>— BuzzFeed Celeb (@BuzzFeedCeleb) <a href="https://twitter.com/BuzzFeedCeleb/status/1054854246506541056?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">October 23, 2018</a></blockquote><script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> </div></figure> <h2 id="h-taylor-swift-s-cat-olivia-benson-is-the-second-richest-cat-in-the-world">Taylor Swift’s cat Olivia Benson is the second richest cat in the world</h2> <p>Meredith Grey isn’t Swift’s only cat named after a strong female character on a TV show. Her second cat, another Scottish Fold, is named Olivia Benson after the detective played by <a href="https://ift.tt/0QpM9Uh Hargitay</a> on <a href="https://ift.tt/EevA082 & Order: SVU</em></a>.</p> <p>According to the <a href="https://ift.tt/3nqTP4x" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">New York Post</a>, Olivia Benson is the second richest cat in the world, with only the famously memed Grumpy Cat earning more than Swift’s pet. Olivia Benson has a net worth of $97 million, while Grumpy Cat has a net worth of $99.5 million.</p> <p>Swift’s second cat doesn’t seem to share the camera shyness of her sister. Olivia Benson earned her vast fortune by appearing in several commercials, including ads for Diet Coke and Keds. She has also appeared in several of Swift’s music videos. </p> <p>Olivia Benson is so camera-friendly that she has her own <a href="https://ift.tt/zHS1ZVY" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Instagram</a> account, where her bio says that her nicknames are Fufu and Dibbles.</p> <figure class="wp-block-embed is-type-rich is-provider-twitter wp-block-embed-twitter"><div class="wp-block-embed__wrapper"> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-width="550" data-dnt="true"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">This is Benjamin Button.

Swift’s other cats, Meredith Grey and Olivia Benson, also appear in the video. </p> <p>The singer adopted the Ragdoll cat after falling in love with him on set, saying he was “special.” According to <a href="https://ift.tt/gi6OlVo Cats World</a>, the breed is “known for their uniquely sweet and gentle nature, their stunning blue eyes and long silky coat.” They are also more “dog-like” than typical cats, as they crave attention and follow their owners around. </p> <p><strong>RELATED: </strong><a href="https://ift.tt/Jnshzvo ‘Summer House’ Cast Member Starred in a Taylor Swift Music Video</strong></a></p>
