Taylor Swift has 3 cats. What breed are they?

The names and breeds of the three cats that are ‘owned’ by Taylor Swift are:

  • Olivia Benson: a Scottish Fold, off-white in color.
  • Meredith Grey: a Scottish Fold, tabby-and-white.
  • Benjamin Button: a Ragdoll kitten becoming an adult, a pointed cat.

Here is Olivia as a kitten:

That is the answer in a nutshell.


Comment: the Scottish Fold is a cat breed which arguably should not be bred because the cartilage defect due to a defective gene can affect other parts of the cat to the detriment of the cat if the breeder does a poor job. They are the product of what Germans call ‘torture breeding’.

Ragdolls are great cats. They are large, beautiful, great indoor cats, calm and friendly. I am generalising because all individuals are different but the Ragdoll is popular.
