Celebrity Cat Name Considerations

How do you choose the right celebrity-inspired cat name? We recommend taking some time to think about your favorite movies, TV shows, and musicians.

Then, decide whether you want something simple or special. Celebrity cat names like Paul (Newman), Gary (Oldman), and Norman (Reedus) won't raise any eyebrows. But if you really want to stand out and choose a wacky name, why not put a punny spin on your chosen celebrity? Hugh Catman, Henry Catvill, and Bill Purry are just a few examples.

Don't "furget" to consider your cat's temperament. Lucy Liu is a good choice for a feisty cat quick to draw her talons. Rebel (Wilson) fits the bill for a stubborn cat who never listens to you.
