Deciding what to name your new cat or kitten can be overwhelming. One way to narrow it down is to consider names inspired by a specific theme, or in this case, a season!

How to Name Your Cat

Even if you narrow your choices down to fall-inspired names, that still leaves plenty of options. You’ll need to dig deeper as you decide what to name your cat. Choose a name based on your cat’s physical appearance, such as their color or pattern.

Take some time to get to know their personality, and it could help you decide if a sweet or scary name fits better. Another option is to consider your personal favorites. Do you love a certain fall holiday, food, or drink? No matter what you decide, be consistent. Cats can learn their names, so don’t confuse them by changing your mind once you pick one.
