Top 10 Most Recent Popular Cat Names


Did you know that cats have been domesticated pets since 10,000 years ago, and that the ancient Egyptians used to worship a cat god as well as have their pets mummified and buried with them so they can be together in the afterlife? Now THAT’S love. What can we say? Cat owners really adore their feline companions and with good reasons. Cats have quirky personalities, sass, and are very affectionate and bonded to their owners!

I thought it would be fun to list the most recent top 10 cats names:

Your Chandler pet sitters have pet sat for an Olive, and a Stella. We love to hear the different creative names you and your families come up with for your furry family members.

What do you think? Do you like the names on this list? Would you consider naming your next cat one of these names? I’m rather fond of the names Winston, Cooper and Bentley for a male and Luna, Fiona and Willow, of course, for a girl.

Did you know that when you name a new pet, generally a one syllable name is easiest for them to learn and understand? How about really out there names? Anyone have a REALLY strange name for a cat? Your Chandler pet sitter wants to know if your cat made the list and to hear your ‘different’ names.

Now wait a minute, what about dog names? Fear not, this cat sitter in Chandler will be posting those soon too! Stay tuned. 🙂
