Olivia Benson, Meet Karma: Mariska Hargitay Returns the Favor and Names Her Cat After Taylor Swift
2023/12/26

THESE CATS NEED a playdate! On Thursday, Mariska Hargitay shared a photo of her new pet cat on social media — and revealed that she named it Karma after a Taylor Swift lyric. It's a full-circle moment for the kitties (and celebrities), since Swift named one of her own feline friends after Hargitay's character in Law and Order: SVU: Olivia Benson.

"Karma is a Cat @taylorswift Meet Karma. My Cat.," Hargitay wrote on Instagram, quoting the lyrics to the Midnights song with hashtags #MeAndKarmaVibeLikeThat and #KarmaIsACat.

"Please bring this baby to work," Ryan Buggle, who plays her son on SVU, commented on the post.

Swift is a proud cat lady and owns three kitties, all named after TV or movie characters: Benjamin Button, Olivia Benson, and Meredith Grey. Swift even featured Hargitay in the music video for 1989's "Bad Blood" alongside Ellen Pompeo, who famously plays Meredith on Grey's Anatomy.
