The Lord of the Rings trilogy—along with other J. R. R. Tolkien works—are beloved for their fantastical storytelling and themes of fellowship and friendship. The bonds made in Tolkien's works are truly iconic and one-of-a-kind, just like the bond we have with our cats. If you've just welcomed a new kitty into your family and are searching for the perfect name, a Lord of the Rings cat name could be just the right moniker for your adventurous feline.
