Cat lovers, how long has it been since we've had a good old cat name showdown? Cosmo has a list of 50 of the best cat names that are popular right now, and I must admit, many of them are adorable. From Simba to Oliver, Loki to Cleo, there are lots of great ideas, not to mention cute cat photos to peruse!
At my house, right now we've got our beloved eight-year-old, Noke (pronounced No-key, because originally he was Princess Mononoke), my teen's companion animal and best friend since age six; Sally, also known as Tardigrade and Sally-Bear, who is three and so fluffy she has to get haircuts; Gizmo, short for Gizmo-Spock, our youngest, who is still part kitten even after her recent spaying; and Pumpkin, which is short for Pumpkin Spice Latte, my "rebound kitty" after my heart, Sky, died last year. We decided to name her something I love so I think about it when I say her name and while I wish I'd waited, since she's not exactly my favorite kind of cat, she's growing on me.
What do you think? What kind of names do your cats have? Share them in the chat! If you're looking for a great new name, be sure to ask that, too.
