Taylor Swift’s cat Olivia Benson is reportedly worth $97 million. Yes, you definitely read that right. Miss Tay Tay’s pet is way richer than most people on earth, barring maybe a handful of wealthy humans.  

Taylor Swift’s cat Olivia Benson is the world’s third-richest pet

As per a new list titled The Ultimate Pet Rich List curated by allaboutcats.com, Taylor Swift’s cat, Olivia is the third richest pet in the world with a staggering net worth of estimated $97 million to its credit. The report has been created based on Instagram analytics. While some cats become rich by climbing the ladder of social media fame, in the case of others, the outside projects they were involved in were taken into account as well.

Take, for example, Taylor’s kitty Olivia herself. She has appeared in a number of commercials alongside the 33-year-old singer-songwriter including DirectTV, AT&T, and Diet Coke. She has also featured in Taylor’s music videos like Me! and Black Space.

“Olivia has found success outside of the world of Instagram influencing,” the list said. “The Scottish Fold earned her fortune starring alongside her owner in several music videos, has crafted her own merchandise line, and has had cameos in many big-budget ads.”

Olivia’s net worth was outranked by a German shepherd named Gunther VI, owned by Gunther Cooperation, and whose estimated net worth stood at $500 million, followed by an Instagram-famous cat named Nala with a reported net worth of $100 million. Olivia did outrank Oprah’s five dogs, the late Karl Lagerfield’s cat Choupette, and the late Betty White’s dog Pontiac.

Taylor’s two other cats Benjamin and Meredith did not make it on the list.
