Best Christmas Themed Cat Names

Christmas is a time for coming together with good friends and family. And for most, that includes furry family members as well. Around the holidays, breeders and shelters alike see an increase in adoptions. Whether you’re bringing home your first kitten or your third, it can be tempting to get swept up in the holiday cheer and bring home a new friend. But we would say a word of caution. The holidays can be an excellent time to bring home a new kitten for those who are planning to stay around the house and relax, but it may not be the best time to adopt if you’re planning on going on vacation for either Christmas or New Years. While cats are a little more hands off than other pets, like a dog, for example, they’ll still need love and attention to help them become accustomed to their new home.

And don’t forget about kitty proofing. The holidays can be a dangerous time for pets, including young, curious kittens. Even older cats can become enamored with dangerous holiday staples like Christmas lights or tinsel on the tree. You’ll need to make sure that your home is kitten-proofed before bringing home a new furry friend, and doing so during the holidays can be tricky.

We aren’t trying to counsel you away from bringing home a new kitten or adult cat this holiday season; we just want to make sure that you’re prepared for the reality of bringing home a living being. If you’ve prepared, and have planned ahead, then bringing home a new kitty for Christmas can be a wonderful and rewarding experience.

One of the most exciting aspects of bringing home a new pet is deciding on a name! And what a better way to utilize the holiday season than by giving your Christmas kitty and holiday-themed name? From Angle to Zuzu, we’ve compiled some of our favorite Christmas-themed cat names to help you find the right name for your new furry family member this holiday season. Enjoy!
