How To Name Your Cat

It’s fun to give your cat a name that reminds you of a film that moved you. Maybe your cat has a particular quality that makes him similar to a character from one of 2017’s summer blockbusters or maybe he simply purred when you spoke the name aloud to him. Even if one of the names seems a little ludicrous, don’t cross it off the list until you try it out on your cat. After all, many movie star cats have silly names. Cameron Diaz named her cat Little Man. Snoop Dog has a cat named Frank Sinatra. If you still can’t decide, try naming your cat after a feline star. You can’t go wrong with a name that’s already been pinned on one of the most famous cats on screen.
