It’s fun to wander into naming your pet with a topic in mind, like the fabulous world of mysterious hags and ghastly ghouls. But I always try to swing my focus back occasionally to reality (I know, boring right?) when i’m naming an animal that has as much freedom as dogs and cats do.
Because your kitty is going to free range in your home, and maybe even your backyard and local town, you probably want them to know their name and come when you call it. Whether that’s from down the road or upstairs at dinner time, it makes a big difference to the ease of living with a furry companion. So whilst thinking up brave and unusual ideas, just make sure your kitty’s handle is something distinctive, fairly short and easy to announce!
