Have you recently brought home a new kitten? Congratulations! Then, to start the excitement, it’s time to choose the best name for your little furry kitty.
Naming a cat Muffin or Max is really old fashioned! Keep in mind that your cat is a lively, breathing person. Why not choose a name that can capture your kitten’s disposition or appearance?
Here are some recommendations for choosing cat names.
Pick a name that you can shout from the porch. While it is easy to scream and say, it will be much easier for your cat to recognize and get used to the name. Research shows that cats respond best to names that have 1 to 2 syllables.
Pick a name that can grow with your cat. For example, if you name your cat “Fluffy” this may not be an adequate description once the cat is an adult.
Start looking at your cat’s unique personality. Each cat is unique, and your cat’s specific habits will help you find the best name. Good examples are “Cuddles” and “Bouncy”. Try to capture your cat’s unique personality with a name.
Here are the funniest, most unique, and cutest cat names we’ve discovered.
