Cat names - the right name for your cat

Which cat name is the right one for your cat?

You have a cat, but it doesn't have a suitable cat name yet. Besides that, is she not just your cat, is she very special? "Cat" or "Puss" is not good enough for you - of course they shouldn't get a name like many other cats, but one that suits them well and expresses it, who and how she is?

- Then you are exactly right here!

What cat names are there?

There are an infinite number of cat names: What a mess. But there is also everything - from home-made or dignified, to weird and bizarre. You go on a search, at first you dig your way through, but at some point you are totally exhausted and frustrated - so many cat names ... But somehow none of them really fit?

How do cats listen to their names

In the animal kingdom, the cat's hearing is one of the best; it is so well expressed that you can hear even the slightest whine of a mouse.

Even when cats dream, they hear! This is vital - because in the wild they would be easy prey for their enemies while they sleep.

Japanese researchers were able to demonstrate experimentally that cats can also assign and understand expressions of people. They could clearly distinguish their own name from other words. Especially when they hear from their tone of voice that something pleasant is most likely coming their way, they suddenly seem to grow wings ...

The reason that they do not always react immediately is because cats have their own mind: you decide when and how they perceive what that means for them and not the onewho speaks to them determines that.

The body language then underlines this sometimes impressively: Your cat sits only a meter away from you and when you speak to it (provided it is not hard of hearing) it blinks at you, turns its head to the left or right - i.e. away from you - and tells you like this: "The cat you call, is temporarily not available." In good German: NO RECEPTION.

What are the best names for cats?

A cat name should be short and sweet. Double names are also too much of a good thing. Cats like names when they are two-syllable and include a light vowel. Since cats hear super well, they can even hear a bright vowel when you are far away and they are calling. A vowel is a vowel: a, e, i, o, u and umlauts like au, ei and ui are also considered a vowel. The light vowels include e and i, dark vowels are a, o and u.

Here are a few examples for you:

  • Charly
  • Cherry
  • Corky
  • Eddi
  • Foxi
  • Fleurie
  • Gipsy
  • Jerry
  • Jimmy
  • Kiki
  • Lucky
  • Marty
  • Minka
  • Minke
  • Minou
  • pussy
  • Puss
  • Kitty
  • Maxi
  • Mimmi
  • Nicki
  • Pinky

Teaching a cat names - this is how it works!

Your cat can have the best of hearing - if you keep giving it new names, it has little chance of memorizing it in the long run. When you have decided on a name, you should stick to this one; associate the name with pleasant experiences: playing, petting and feeding.

You can also read about how you can train your cat to do certain things in our article on cat training.

Cats learn quickly. Are you tempted by a special Schmackofatz or a detailed cat massage? - Then your cat will come in no time!
