Taylor Swift Explains Why She Carries Cat Olivia Benson Around New York City!
Most people don\'t take their cats out for a walk.
Then again, most people aren\'t Taylor Swift , nor do they have cats like Olivia Benson! The 24-year-old "Shake It Off" singer has been spotted toting her adorable Scottish Fold kitten like a stylish sidekick through New York City—but there\'s a perfectly logical explanation for why!
"The kitten freaks out about being put in the cat carrier," Swift, 24, recently told
. "So I was just like, \'OK, all right, we\'re gonna just do this!\'"

"It was like a 10 foot walk from my door to the car!" she said. "What I thought was funny about those pictures is that, like, the cat is looking straight at the cameras!"
Indeed, Taylor\'s feline friend is as camera-ready as her famous mama. Olivia found a home with Taylor in June, joining the singer\'s 3-year-old cat, Meredith Grey.
Recognize those names? They\'re Taylor\'s favorite
characters, respectively. "Strong, complex, independent women," she explained to

As much as Taylor loves her kitties, though, she admittedly had some fears about becoming the stereotypical crazy cat lady.
"I asked around: I was like, \'Does two cats count as cats?\'" she said. "But then I thought, what imaginary guy\'s perspective am I thinking about this from? Someone is going to think I\'m undateable for a lot of reasons before they think I\'m undateable because I have two cats."
