Taylor Swift’s Cat has a Higher Net Worth than Travis Kelce

Travis Kelce may be a star on the football field, but when it comes to net worth, he’s not quite on the same level as his girlfriend Taylor Swift’s cat, Olivia Benson. The Scottish Fold, adopted by Swift in 2014, boasts an impressive estimated net worth of $97 million, making her one of the world’s richest pets.

According to a ranking by AllAboutCats.com, Olivia Benson has accumulated her wealth through appearances in music videos, a personal merchandise line, and cameos in high-profile advertisements for brands like Diet Coke and Ned Sneakers. Named after Mariska Hargitay’s character in “Law & Order: SVU,” the cat has certainly carved out a lucrative niche for herself.

In comparison, the Kansas City Chiefs tight end, Travis Kelce, has an estimated net worth of $40 million as of 2024. Despite his success and endorsement deals with McDonald’s, Papa John’s, Nike, and Dick’s Sporting Goods, along with a substantial salary from a four-year $57.25 million contract with the Chiefs, Kelce’s fortune pales in comparison to that of Olivia Benson.

Fans have taken to TikTok to humorously compare the feline’s fortune to Kelce’s, with one noting, “If Travis is lucky, he’ll be as successful as TS’s cats one day.” Others expressed astonishment at the cat’s wealth, with comments about how Olivia Benson has more money than they could ever imagine.

Kelce himself has been vocal about feeling “underpaid,” especially in light of his teammates’ lucrative contracts. In a January 2023 interview with Vanity Fair, he mentioned his desire for a higher salary, reflecting on former Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill’s $30 million a year deal with the Miami Dolphins and how it significantly outstrips his own earnings.

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift’s net worth is reported to be an astounding $740 million, according to Forbes, dwarfing both her boyfriend’s and her pet’s fortunes. As Swift continues to dominate the music industry, it’s clear that both she and her beloved cat Olivia Benson are in a league of their own when it comes to financial success.
