She’s on her way to ‘crazy cat lady’ status, and Taylor Swift introduced an adorable new kitten via Instagram on Wednesday (June 18).

Along with a heartwarming photograph, the “Everything Has Changed” chick added the caption, “Meet Olivia Benson.”

Of course, the furry feline’s moniker was taken from Mariska Hargitay’s character on “Law & Order: SVU,” which Swift has stated is one of her favorite television shows.

Taylor previously told Teen Vogue that Benson would be her top choice if she could have dinner with a television, book or movie character.

"[I would choose] Detective Olivia Benson from Law and Order S.V.U. I sit in my apartment and watch hours of that show. So I sort of feel like me and Olivia are BFFs."
