How to Name Your Cat

To find the perfect name, you have to do a little thinking. First, check out your cat’s personality. Does anything stand out? Are they playful, shy, stand-offish, creepy? You can also take their looks into account, or someone they look like; think fictional characters, classic figures, or generic figures like a policeman or hippie.
If those things don’t add up to anything, think about your own hobbies, interests, careers, or just things you’re naturally attracted to like thunderstorms, plush grass, taffy pulls, or monster trucks. Anything you can think of to give your purring friend a unique name will work!
