What Makes A Great Name For Your Cat.

We all give our cats all sorts of strange and unusual names and for all sorts of reasons, some simple, some more intriguing. Generally we name them after some physical characteristic like the colour of their fur, I.E Ginger, or a personality trait like being cheeky I.E Rascal. But for whatever reason we choose a name, it is never silly.

For instance my last cat was called Mouse or Little Mo for short. We called her this because she was so small and petit, just like a little mouse, plus we thought this was a cute name to give a cat. However for the first week she spent with us she was called Prickles because she used her claws all the time (including our legs). But the name did not stick and Little Mo just seemed to suit her more and that's the name she had for the next 15 years.

My current two cats are called Shelley and Byron (see picture) after the famous Poets, so as you can see if the name suits the cat then there is no such thing as a silly name.

Submitting Your Own Cats Name

When you submit the name of your cat it becomes its own page here on the site and so there needs to be at least 300 words to your submissions and a picture.  (Submissions which do not meet this requirement will be deleted) 

To give you an idea of the sort of think you can tell us about, here are a few guideline:

  • Why not tell us, where you found your cat
  • Why you think your cat suits its name
  • Where the idea for the cats name came from
  • What makes your cat so special

All of these things will make your submission more interesting. Don’t forget  a picture of your cat, we would love to see that too.

I really look forward to receiving your cat names submissions. You never know your cats name may be chosen by another visitor to this site looking for inspiration as to what to name their own cat.

Tell Us Your Cats Name

Please tell us all about your cat and why you gave your cat their name. Tell us what he looks like, his character, his funny little way etc.

It makes it more interesting for other visitors if they can read something about the name and may help them to choose it for their own cat.
