Names For A Pet Cat
Are you looking for a name for your pet cat?
Kittens often seem to develop their names through their personality, or appearance, so many times a cat's name will reflect one of these features.
Check out your cat to see if there are any distinguishing physical traits which may be used to name him or her. Otherwise perhaps one of the names in this article will be the perfect name for your cat or kitten.

Names for a pet cat or kitten sometimes just develop naturally.
Cats really are very independent yet affectionate pets to own. Instead of you being the master a cat often winds up owning you.
So when you are naming your kitten keep in mind that cats definitely have a distinct and sometimes aloof personality. Cats are different from other pets because they may not come when they are called even if they appear to know their name. Don't worry too much about your cats casual treatment of it's name. Your kitty will eventually respond to the name which you choose for him or her.
Also don't be surprised if your cat's name changes with the passing of time. This is a common occurrence when naming a cat. A cat's personality grows parallel to their physical stature, so as your pet's characteristic attitude emerges, so will the appropriate name for them.
I once named a cat Lady but she eventually morphed into being named Beans. Her character was so beautiful that I would lovingly whisper to her, "You have always been a Lady - haven't you always a lady been."... and Beans she became. Don't be surprised if your cat names his or her self.
More recently, our current cat we adopted from our local animal shelter. His name was Noah which was a nice name but hardly fit his personality. We as a family decided to rename our new pet Sheldon Cooper.
Our cat before our current one was renamed as well. She was given to us by a family friend. The cat was very old and was named Spatz. We named her Gammas because of her age.

If your female cat acts like a Ralph, and responds to this name, then this just may be the perfect name for her. Only you and your cat can decide which is the perfect name to bestow upon your pet.
Don't forget to have your cat spayed or neutered.
Help insure that all pets have the chance to find a good home by having your pet spayed or neutered.
Provide your kitty with plenty of love.
A cat tree allows your cat it's own personal space in which to romp, climb, jump, play and sleep. Cats love to play so give yours the perfect play ground.
