Naming a pet can place a lot of unnecessary stress on a pet parent. You want a great name that shows your pet’s individuality but you’re constantly worried that you’ll choose one that simply won’t fit as your pet grows older. This is especially difficult when it comes to naming cats.

Cats are known as curious animals with a bit of an attitude to them, but calicos are famous for their charm and their beautiful tri-color coats. Their name should show their true nature. This means it may take a bit of thought, research, and time to find the perfect name for your kitty.


How to Name Your Calico Cat

As we said above, naming your cat takes a bit of time. Why? You need to learn a bit about your newest friend before you attach a name to them, especially charismatic calicos. You want their name to show off their individuality while also promoting how you see your kitty. Don’t forget to keep things you like in mind also. If your kitty is an adventurer, and you love action movies, maybe you want to include a favorite character name. If your cat likes chilling with you while you sip coffee in the morning, then perhaps a morning brew-inspired name is right up your cat’s alley. Whatever name you choose, make sure it seems fitting. Your cat may think you’re a bit odd if you randomly changed it in a few years.
