Mariska Hargitay is finally responding to Taylor Swift's newest cat being named Olivia Benson, after her Law & Order: SVU character.

The brunette actress posted a photo of herself donning a cat collar on her Instagram, along with several accompanying hashtags that are equal parts hilarious and endearing.

"Taylor Swift this came in the mail," she wrote as the caption, before adding:

"#WrongAddress #GotThisByCatccident #DontHaveACatniption #Collared #GonnaWearItAnyway #CatsOuttaTheBag #MeowliviaBenson #ScratchThat #PurrrfectName #TaylorMade #3MonthsLater #ALittleLateToThePawty #ThisCollarNeedsACat #PawAndOrder #OliviaBensonPetDetective."

Boom. She wins.

Back in June, the "Shake It Off" singer introduced the world to her newest pet with a precious pic of the white kitty in her lap and wrote, "Meet Olivia Benson."

Swift has made no secret to the fact that she's a massive fan of the series.

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

And in her latest interview with Rolling Stone magazine, the songstress dished that she prefers to name her pets after "strong, complex, independent women" and that Olivia in particular is a "stage-five clinger."

T.Swift has one other feline, Meredith, named after Meredith Grey from the hit series Grey's Anatomy.
