Taylor Swift’s Cat Olivia Benson Is Richer Than All of Us

Taylor-Swift-Benjamin-Button-Olivia-Benson-and-Meredith-Grey-1-768x960Taylor Swift made headlines this morning as she kicked off her The Eras Tour with 44 songs presented to the audience over three hours last night. However, a different member of the Swift household is in the news, as her cat, Olivia Benson, has landed the number three spot on the Forbes-style list of World's Wealthiest Pets.

AllAboutCats.com calculates a pet's net worth using Instagram data and estimates how much each pet could make per Instagram if they posted. While not scientifically perfect, as Olivia Benson does not even have an Instagram account, the site believes the Scottish fold's net worth is around $97 million.
