Life is good for Taylor Swift’s cat — watch her meet the woman she’s named for

Taylor Swift has a cat she calls Olivia Benson — named for Mariska Hargitay’s character on Law and Order: SVU. And over the weekend, Olivia Benson the cat got to meet the woman who inspired her name when Mariska Hargitay joined Taylor Swift during the first night of her 1989 tour in Philadelphia.

“This is Olivia Benson meeting Olivia Benson and, um, things are going well so far,” says Taylor as she narrates the video of the big meeting. Watch it here:

Maybe the most amazing part of this whole thing is that Taylor Swift brings her cat with her on tour!
