How to Choose a Name for Your Cat

Cats can be finicky critters and some are even persnickety about their names. So, how can you find the right name for your cat, one that he/she will acknowledge and respond to? Here are some tips to keep in mind when choosing your kitty’s Disney name:

1). Color: perhaps your cat or kitten has a distinctive, pretty color. This may be the inspiration for her name! Look for Disney characters that have similar colorings—this might be the perfect name for your cat.

2). Personality: another idea is to choose a Disney character with a personality that matches your cat. Is your cat like Lucifer and enjoys getting others into trouble? Or maybe she’s more like Duchess, elegant and caring.

3). Gender: you can also choose a Disney character name that matches your kitty’s gender. For example, if you have a boy cat, names like Thomas O’Malley, Aladdin or Jiminy Cricket might make great choices. For girl cats, you could choose names such as Ariel, Cinderella or even Snow White.

Take your time to choose just the right name for your cat. It may help to get to know your new cat or kitten by observing their behavior, how she plays, etc. Be sure to keep your cat’s name short, as complicated names are difficult for cats to recognize. Once you’ve chosen a name, then it’s time to see if your cat likes her new name. If she responds, that’s great! If not, then you’ll have to work on finding another name she prefers. When you’ve both agreed on the new name, then be sure to repeat your cat’s name often. Use her name when you feed and play with her, during snuggle time, etc. She’ll soon become familiar with her name and may even come when you call!

We hope this article has helped you find just the right Disney character name for your new cat or kitten! We wish you both all the best!
