For whatever reason, many cat lovers just can’t resist the charm of a tubby kitty. Maybe it’s their chubby belly or the fact that they tend to be content just to snuggle on the couch with you, thanks to the amount of energy it takes to move their bulk around!

If you’re bringing a fat cat into your home, you’ll need just the right name for your portly new pal. We’ve got you covered with over 300 options to choose from for your big, bold kitty. Check out our picks, inspired by everything from a Thanksgiving turkey to a big green superhero (don’t make him angry).

Note: While fat cats may be cute, they are far from healthy and likely very uncomfortable in their bodies. We encourage all those with overweight pets to speak to their veterinarian about putting their animals on healthy food regimens that can increase their comfort and lifespan.

How To Name Your Fat Cat

If you’re naming any cat, you want to be inspired not only by their looks but their personality as well. This is especially true when naming a fat cat because chances are your vet will put them on a diet for health reasons and they won’t be overweight forever! Spend a little time getting to know your cat before you decide on just the right name.

Conclusion

There you have it! Over 300 possible names for your fat cat. Just remember while it’s fun to be creative with a name for your overweight cat, obesity can actually lead to serious health concerns.

Speak to your vet about getting your cat on an appropriate weight loss program. The best part of choosing fat cat names is that they can always be used ironically once your cat slims down to a healthy weight.
