How To Pick A Name For Your New Cat

Picking a name for your new cat is a vital decision you will ever make. The name must be used to relate to the cat for his/her entire life. If you don’t know how to do so, here are some tips to help you out:

 

  • Do not choose a name that sounds like a command.

Pets depend on “sounds like” instead of what they really mean when they attempt to comprehend what we are telling them. Thus, names such as “Puff,” “Joe” or “Rum” could end up sounding like “off,” “no!” or “come.” Because of this, your cat might not distinguish which way to turn if you call.

 

  • Prevent names that sound like other names.

The name of your cat must not be similar to the names of other household member either animal or human. This would confuse your cat in the long run.

 

  • Make the name short.

Some things to think of are the name’s length. Generally, shorter names that have one or two syllables will be simpler for your pet to know compared to longer names.

 

  • Pick a name that your cat can grow into.

The moment you name a kitten, keep in mind that he/she will eventually grow into an adult cat. So, you must pick an appropriate name that suits every stages of his/her life.

 

  • Be willing to shout the name in public.

Lastly, guarantee that you choose a name that you’ll feel comfy calling in public. A name you think is cute yet personal might get on a changed connotation if called in your yard when your cat goes outside. Moreover, do not pick a name that seems funny to avoid “cat-bullying.”

My 15 month old is called Purrcy. I picked the name when I knew him a little better. I’ve never known another cat who purrs so much and so intensively, so this seemed to be the right name.

I’ve found the best way to choose NAMES for both cats and dogs is to let them choose it. Make lots of sounds until they respond, then make a name using those sounds.all mine respond to the name immidiately.
