How to Name Your Cat

Choosing the right cat name is no easy task. Below, we’ve included some tips that may help you come to a conclusion for your new beloved family member.

Short and Sweet is Best

Shorter names that only have one or two syllables are going to be much easier for your cat to learn. Have you ever wondered why your cat is so responsive to “ Here kitty, kitty!” rather than his or her name? That’s because the two syllables stand out and are easy for them to recognize when you are trying to get their attention.

Of course, you can name your cat whatever you’d like, but if you want your cat to learn their name quickly and easily, short and sweet is the way to go.

Keep Their Personality in Mind

You want a name that fits the personality behind it. This goes for humans and animals alike, and you may be able to come up with the perfect name simply by knowing your cat’s personality and behavioral characteristics.

Think Long-Term

Cats can live anywhere from 12 to 20 years, so choosing a name that can grow right along with them is a great idea since there is a good chance you will be calling their name for many years to come.  There are a lot of options out there that are suitable for both kittens and adults.

Involve the Family

It’s always a great idea to get the whole family involved in the naming process. You should take the time to sit down with the family discuss your likes and dislikes and narrow down the best choice for your new feline companion.
