Use our quick tips to try your hand at coming up with your own creative name, or use our fun lists to choose a name for your furry pal!
Tips For Naming Your Cat
Given how individualistic cats can be, their name can give everyone a hint to their true personality! Spend a few days with your new cat before choosing a name. Their personality is sure to come out. Take note of how they behave around you. Are they aloof? Silly? A troublemaker? You also might want to take their physical appearance into consideration. Fur color and size can play just as big a roll as attitude when selecting a name. Check our lists below for some creative and funny cat names to get started!
