How Do You Pick The Right Name?

Here’s an important question: how do you know if you’ve picked the right name for your cat?

After years of helping new cat owners find the perfect name, here are some tips we’ve picked up along the way:

  • Is it easy to say? Some names are great on paper but tough to pronounce in everyday life. Before you become set on a name, make sure it rolls off the tongue because after all, you’ll be saying it many times a day once the cat joins your family!
  • Does it fit your cat? Check to see if the name matches your cat’s personality and appearance before committing to a name.
  • Say it out loud. Can you imagine calling for your cat with this name? If not, then it’s not the right choice. Move on and select something more appropriate.
  • And finally, trust your gut. Ask any new cat owner: when you find the right name, you’ll know it!
