When we get to hold our kittens for the first time, we instantly notice how incredibly soft and fluffy our little furball is–often, nothing short of a cashmere blanket! Beautiful and unique in their coloring, a few of the most common breeds of long-haired cats include Maine Coons, Himalayan, and Persian. Although we can’t seem to keep their hair off our clothes, there is just something so special and warm about our felines with great manes!
Rather than becoming a Tiger King of your own, you can get a mini tiger with a mini-mane instead, for safety, grooming ease, and many other reasons, of course.
Interestingly enough, we humans often like to name our kittens after their physical traits. So, of course, we compiled a list of names inspired by their long-hair! Check out our top picks for females and males, as well as few specific to the most common coat colors!
