What’s In The Perfect Cat Name 

You might find yourself wondering what makes a great cat name so … well, great! Every cat will be distinct in its own way. If you are looking for a name that sets them apart, we recommend playing off of their adorable features or quirky personality. A name can be as representative of your new addition as you choose. So if you are truly stumped when it comes to choosing the right name, allow your kitten (or lovely matured rescue!) to become acquainted with you and their new environment and a name might develop naturally. Most importantly, your kitten will grow into whatever you decide and will ultimately enjoy your friendship more than their name. So have fun and try not to overthink it!
