Cats may be cute and cuddly most of the time, but most also have a switch they can flip that turns them mischievous and maybe, just a tiny bit evil.

divider-catclaw1How To Name Your Cat

When it’s time to pick a name for your cat, there are many ways you can go about the task. You might select a single aspect of their personality, like their mischievous nature, and choose a name that matches. Or you might go with a name that’s based on the color of their fur. Better yet, you could consider your cat as a whole and work from there.

However you decide to pick a name is up to you, but the way you choose to do so will give you different names to look at. So, it could be wise to consider names from every angle—personality, the color of their coat, or as a whole—to open up a world of cat name options.
