Help Choosing The Right Name
Naming your new red/orange kitten or cat is a big responsibility. One that you want to be sure you are able to fulfill before you bring your furry friend into your home. However, it will take your new feline a few days to get used to his new name, so if you haven't settled on one, don't stress too much. Unlike with children, whom you have to register almost immediately after they are born, you can change your pet's name as many times as you want. Though, it isn't recommended that you make too many changes, or else you will find yourself with a non-responsive pet when you finally do settle on a name.
When you get your new orange kitty home from the breeder or bring your newly adopted ginger cat home from the shelter, try out the name that you like best and see if it fits. If it does, then great! Your job is done. However, if you call out to your pet and the name just sounds weird to your ears, go ahead and try another. At this point, your cat is far more influenced by your actions, than by what you are calling them. Make sure you take the time to really test out your favorites and go with the one that you love the most, and that suits your new pal the best.
Some Things To Keep In Mind When Choosing A New Name For Your Cat
Always keep these few simple things in mind when you are finding that perfect name for your orange cat.
Choosing a name for your new cat shouldn't be stressful, and it shouldn't inspire any type of anger or conflict between your family members. Keep in mind that bringing a new pet home to become a member of your family should always be something that is greeted with excitement and joy. No matter the issue, there are tried-and-true ways to decide which name to go with that doesn't need to involve a lot of complex emotions. Even something as simple as a coin toss can really help to maintain a positive attitude. If you are still undecided, you can possibly try one name for the first day and the second for the next day to really feel which name works best for your new friend.
Choose a name that you can shout down a busy street without drawing too much confusion, panic, or embarrassment. It may seem like an amazing idea to call your new cat Bomb because let's be honest, he is the bomb, but when you are shouting his name and people are fleeing or calling the police, you will likely regret your decision.
Try your new cat's name out a few times before making it official. It may seem silly, but practicing calling your cat's name can tell you pretty quickly if you like it or not.
Remember, you can change your cat's name at any point in the future if you feel like the name that you chose just doesn't fit.
Regardless of the name that you decide upon, your new cat or kitten will love you for being a great owner and companion. So, don't fret too much about the name that you decide to go with. Your cat won't know the difference between a great name, a funny name, a cute name, or just a silly name. All they really know is that they have a new home to call their own.
Remember to treat them right and care for their well-being and your cat will spend their days purring away in your lap, chasing their toys, and lounging on literally any flat surface that is available.
Though, if you really want to inspire love in your new feline, just pick up an empty cardboard box on the way home from picking up your new furry friend and watch their mysterious fascination with this simplistic toy as they claim it as their own.
