You might recall that a few months back, Taylor Swift adorably introduced the world to her cute and fluffy new pet—a white-haired, blue-eyed kitten—and we fell in love. Named Olivia Benson after Mariska Hargitay’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit character, Swift's feline friend has since become a superstar in her own right after the songstress posted a video of the cat's first trip on an airplane.

Yesterday, Hargitay finally responded to the cat sharing a moniker with her famous TV role—and she did it in the most hilarious way possible. The actress posted an Instagram photo (above) of herself wearing a white cat collar featuring a heart-shaped "Olivia Benson" name tag. The caption read, "@taylorswift this came in the mail." And Hargitay also tacked on a bevy of priceless hashtags:

Talk about amazing! Here's hoping that Hargitay will one day meet Swift's Olivia Benson (below) in real life.
