We have an inkling that when Taylor Swift named her cats after her favorite fictional television characters, she was hoping for a moment like this.
Just in case you don’t follow the lives of Swift’s felines, she has two kitties: Olivia Benson and Meredith Grey.
Some people know the names of the cats (only Taylor Swift could make her cats household names), but they don’t know where the names came from.
We wouldn’t put it past Taylor to give her pets creative first and last names, but when it comes to her kitties, she isn’t as clever as some may think.
Her cats were actually named after two of her television heroes.

While Meredith has yet to meet her maker, Swift’s kitty Olivia met her name’s inspiration yesterday, and according to this instagram video, all went well:
It looks as though this meetup was bound to happen, as Mariska acknowledged Tay’s feline friend months ago.
Is it just us, or is anyone else in love with this story?
Come on Ellen, it’s your turn!
