How To Chose A Name For Your Cat

There’s 133 names in this list and it can honestly be overwhelming. You probably figured going with an old lady cat name would be easy, but it’s not! Here are some tips to pick the perfect name for your cat


Obviously your cat or kitten’s looks is the first thing to consider when picking the right name for them. A slender, dark cat who is very elegant might make a great “Zenobia” whereas a light-colored ditzy cat might be better suited as an “Elle Woods!”


If you’re unsure of what to name your new cat or kitten then hang out with them for a few days to get to know their personality a bit better. An old girl who lounges around might make a great “Doris” whereas a feisty and strong kitty might make a great “Xena!”


Above all, try and pick a name that you feel your cat will grow into. Your fluffy kitten might look great with a matching name now, but how will your kitten look when they get older? Will that same name fit them just as well?
