Taylor Swift took her gorgeous cat Olivia Benson for a walk in New York City yesterday.

The 'Love Story' singer was pictured rocking a bit of a preppy schoolgirl look as she clutched her two-month-old pet in Manhattan on Tuesday (16 September).

Off to the vet, perhaps?

Cat lover Taylor welcomed Olivia Benson - named after a main character in Law & Order: SVU - to her family earlier this year. She's already mum to cat Meredith Grey, the namesake of the Grey's Anatomy character.

Taylor has two cats: Meredith Grey and Olivia Benson

Bit of a theme here, right?!

"Strong, complex, independent women," she recently told Rolling Stone of her cats' names. "That's the theme." She also joked that kitten Olivia was currently a "stage five clinger."


Later, after spying paparazzi pictures of herself and Olivia on their day out, singer Taylor tweeted them to Law & Order: SVU actress Mariska Hargitay - who plays Olivia Benson.

Taylor joked: "Hey, @Mariska and @nbcsvu, if you noticed less crime in NYC today.. It's cause the other Olivia Benson was on patrol."
