Cat Names

Updated on September 13, 2010

Find the Purrfect Cat Name

My very first cat was deaf, so I got a late start on the whole cat-naming thing. If I wanted to call him, I'd thump on the floor. He had a name. In fact, he had lots of names, since he wasn't going to come when called no matter what. Since that time, all of my cats have had multiple names. I've learned a cat that can hear you isn't much more likely to come when called by name than a deaf cat. For some reason, a can opener always works better. Here's a collection of cat names for you. You're welcome to add to the list, since you can never have too many names. Also, you may have more than one cat, so there are names for duos and trios of cats!

      I have a male Siamese called Neo and a female Siamese called Trinity. Both are daredevils in their own little way.
