How To Name Your Cat

There are so many ways to pick a name for your cat! You might choose a common human name like “Bob” or decide on one based on a mythological character. You could go with a name that references the color of their fur or one based on their origins. You also might want to mix and match physical characteristics and elements of their personality for the perfect name.

Whichever way you go about choosing a name for your cat will be the right way for you. Still, it might help to consider not only something physical like their size but also their personality. This will open a world of names, enabling you to find the best fit for your kitty.
