Mariska Hargitay Has the Best Response to Taylor Swift’s Cat Olivia Benson [PHOTO]

Swifties, Mariska Hargitay (aka the “real” Olivia Benson on ‘Law & Order: SVU’) has taken to Instagram to react to Taylor Swift naming her kitten after the character. And yes, her response is just as amazing as you think it would be.

First of all, the actress literally took a selfie wearing a cat collar with the name “Olivia Benson” engraved on the tag. And just in case that isn’t enough for you, she went ahead and hashtagged over a dozen incredible cat puns. We’re talking things like ‘#GotThisByCatccident,’ ‘#DontHaveACatniption,’ ‘#CatsOuttaTheBag,’ ‘#MeowliviaBenson,’ ‘#ScratchThat,’ ‘#PurrrfectName,’ ‘#ALittleLateToThePawty’ and even ‘#PawAndOrder,’ ‘#OliviaBensonPetDetective.’ Not gonna lie — we can’t get over it.

And in case you’re wondering, Ellen Pompeo (aka Meredith Grey, aka the namesake of Swift’s other cat, Meredith) has also responded to the adorable naming, gushing over Meredith on ‘Ellen’.

Check out Mariska Hargitay’s hilarious Instagram pic above, and see Ellen Pompeo’s response in the video below.
