How to Name Your Cat

Drawing inspiration from a list of Disney-themed cat names can help when naming your cat, but it’s only part of the battle. You still have to choose your favorite and make sure it matches your cat’s personality. It should also be something that you don’t mind calling out in front of guests!

The best advice is to take your time. Give yourself a few days to get to know your kitten and learn their personality before settling on a final choice. Use that time to gather a list of names that you like, both from lists like these and ones inspired by the cat themselves.

Naming your kitten should be fun and rewarding. It’s also a great way to start bonding with your new pet. Their name might just surprise you!
