There's one member of the Swift family who's had a BIG year. No, not that one.

In summer of 2014, the world said hello to Detective Olivia "Dibbles" Benson. 

No, not the Law And Order: SVU character - the latest addition to the Swift family.


Meet Olivia Benson.

Since her introduction, we've all grown to love Taylor's new Scottish Fold through her cameos in Tay's Instagram, Tumblr, and even her music videos.

In fact, Olivia has been virtually unstoppable; in the past six months she has skyrocketed to fame in a career that puts all of our 2014 achievements to shame, and almost surpasses that of her owner. Let's have a look at the triumphant rise of Dibbles:

First she took the important step of mastering the selfie.

Then she got headshots taken by Tay's parents - and they blow yours right out of the water.

In fact, she immediately got a gig as a spokeskitten for Diet Coke.

And then went straight into releasing her own line of shoes.

She's become the shining star of one of the year's biggest music videos.

She's become a style icon for the OTHER Olivia Benson.

She's become a meme.


And she's even gotten her first celebrity hater.

In fact, she's become such a big deal that she's even hired this person to be her personal chauffeur.

But fame hasn't changed her too much - she still helps Taylor out with the hard work.

 And she still gets plenty of beauty catnaps - even while jetsetting.


Not even kitten right meow.

So that's why they call it a Scottish FOLD.

Congrats on an epic 2014, Dibbles. You'll never go out of style.
