If you still aren't set on the perfect name for your cat, there are some other ways to come up with a name that will fit your feline's personality.

  • Think about some of your own favorite things: movies, books, TV shows, music, etc. Reference a favorite character, celebrity, movie, or song title when coming up with a good pun name for your individual cat. Love Disney? Name your cat Simba.
  • Though puns can be so much fun, make sure you still pick a name that is easy to say or give your cat a nickname that you use to train her. Cats don't come when called as easily as dogs, so a shorter, easy-to-pronounce name makes her more likely to react to you (Example: If her name is Kitty Purry, maybe use Kitty for short).
  • Clearly if you're reading this you enjoy humor. Think about what makes you laugh, or what qualities make your furball hilarious and come up with a funny cat name that will bring a smile to your face every time you see your feline companion (Nugget, Tater, or Gandalf are a few of our favorites).

Whatever name you choose for your cat, we hope this list has sparked some inge-mewity!
