Taylor Swift’s pussy Olivia Benson is richer than all of us


Taylor Swift’s cat, Olivia Benson, has landed at number three on a new list of the world’s richest pets.

The Forbes-style list was compiled by website AllAboutCats.com, which calculated the animals’ net worth using Instagram data to estimate “how much each of these animals could earn per Instagram.” Additionally, the online tool, Influence Marketing Hub, was used to estimate each animal’s Instagram earnings per post, as well as the average number of likes.
It’s not necessarily the most scientific or demanding methodology, especially when it comes to Olivia Benson, who doesn’t even have her own Instagram account and is essentially reaping the benefits of Swift’s massive career. (Another nepo baby!) Still, according to AllAboutCats, that makes Olivia Benson worth an estimated $97 million.

“The Scottish Fold made his fortune starring alongside his owner in several music videos, created his own product line and made appearances in numerous big-budget commercials including Diet Coke and Ned Sneakers,” explained the website.

(It’s unclear if Swift’s other two cats, Meredith Gray and Benjamin Button, are worth the same as Olivia, as they weren’t mentioned on the list at all. It’s really true what they say – no one wants to work these days.)

Olivia Benson wasn’t the only famous pet on the list, although she was ranked highest after more traditional pets known on the web, German Shepherd Gunther VI (net worth $500 million) and Nala Cat ($100 million). As for the other famous pets on the list, there are Oprah Winfrey’s four dogs, each of whom will inherit $30 million via their own trust when Oprah dies (seriously); late fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld’s Birman cat, Choupette, who inherited $13 million after Lagerfeld’s death (seriously); and Pontiac, the Golden Retriever adopted by Betty White, who inherited $5 million after the actress died (again, seriously).
