Tips For Naming A Cat
Choosing a name for your furry cat companion is exciting, but also daunting at the same time. Below are a few helpful tips to help you feel confident that your cat has the best name for a lifetime.
- Make it personal
- Take into account the coat color of the cat
- Tabby cat patterns should provide inspiration
- Brainstorm and then brainstorm some more!
- Keep It Short
The more personal your cat name is, the more meaning it will have. Personal names that you associate with good memories or situations can help build a really strong bond with any cat. The coat color of a cat can help greatly with choosing a name. The pattern on the cat’s fur can also provide plenty of inspiration.
For example, a cat with spots everywhere could be named “Spotty”. Another example is a mackerel tabby cat who could be named “Jaws” or “Tigger”. Ultimately you want to think outside of the box so that the name is fun and unique.
Testing out some names with your cat to see what they respond to can also help with choosing a name. Our best advice is to always keep the names short and to the point. Shorter names are easier to remember and your cat will thank you for it! Following these tips along with the list of names below will help make the process much easier.
