WESTERLY, R.I., June 19 (UPI) -- Self proclaimed 'cat lady' Taylor Swift has added a new kitten to her collection.

The 24-year-old country music star took to Instagram Wednesday to introduce her latest pet to her followers.

"Meet Olivia Benson," Swift captioned the photo, which finds her sitting with a white kitty on her lap. The singer's new pet is named after her favorite Law & Order: SVU character.

"I sit in my apartment and watch hours of that show. So I sort of feel like me and Olivia are BFFs," Swift told Teen Vogue in 2011.

While the internet has had an overwhelmingly positive response to Swift's new kitty, not everyone is happy about Olivia Benson's arrival. The singer's other cat, Meredith -- named after Grey's Anatomy's Meredith Grey -- took to Twitter to proclaim she needed love too.

News of the singer's new kitten comes one day after three people were arrested outside her Rhode Island home Tuesday.
