How To Name Your Cat
Naming your cat might come easy, but it might not. Here are some tips to consider if you are having a hard time making your decision:
Get Everyone Involved
Unless you are single and living alone, why not try getting everyone in the house involved in the naming process? This can be fun and enriching for the little ones, they may even come up with some great ideas all on their own. Getting the family involved is a great idea, especially if this kitty is considered a family pet.
Keep it Short
Shorter names with one or two syllables are much easier for your cat to learn and remember. Even if you’d like to choose a name that is longer and even more complex, think of a one or two-syllable nickname that you can call for short. It’s always rewarding when your cat comes to their name as opposed to “kitty, kitty.”
Make Sure It Fits Well
It’s no secret that some names just fit certain personalities. You want to get to know your cat before sticking them with a name. Their personality traits may very well help you make this difficult decision. When thinking of your cat’s personality vs. the choices of famous names, try considering what kind of influence and personality type that famous cat or person had.
Your cat is going to have this name for life. Make sure you name them something you won’t be embarrassed to tell the veterinary staff or the groomer. In addition, you may want to keep the name appropriate for the sake of family gatherings with grandparents or the in-laws.
