Meet Meredith Grey & Olivia Benson. No not, the famous TV characters on Grey’s Anatomy or Law & Order, Taylor Swift‘s cats.

Though named after the popular TV series characters, these two cats are probably the most high-profiled celebrity pets. Meredith Grey, the eldest of the two, was brought into the fam on Halloween in 2011, while Olivia Benson, the newest addition to the “party,” came in June 2014. Taylor has shown enormous amount of love for her two pets in various ways over the years.
