Fun Fact

Dogs perceive that humans are different from dogs. However, many experts agree that cats think humans are cats. These intelligent creatures are smart enough to know that humans are larger, hairless, and clumsier. Nonetheless, humans are a different version of a cat to them. Evidence of this includes their purring, rubbing their noses and faces up against your legs, kneading their paws on you, or trying to lick your skin with their sandpaper tongues.

Tips for Naming Your Unique Female Cat

When thinking of a name for your cat, make sure you pick something that has lasting power. Cats can live up to 16 years and sometimes longer. Also, remember, whatever name you decide, choose something you feel comfortable sharing with your friends, family, and cat's vet's office. Some other ways that you can come up with a cat's names can be from observing your cat's actions, quirky mannerisms, or physical characteristics. You can take cues from fur color or breed, too. For instance, the regal Persian breed yields popular names like Diva, Sheba, and Princess.
