Why should you find a good name for your cat?

Cats are known for their independent character, but that doesn't mean they're not able to communicate and interact with you. Cats can actually remember lots of words, which is why it's very important to decide on a name for your tomcat. That way, he will understand you're talking to him.

Cats usually take between 5 and 10 days to internalize their name and respond to it. In order to train them to recognize their name, you'll have to repeat it often when talking to him and follow these tips:

  • Choose a name that's easy to remember and easy to pronounce.
  • Don't choose a very long name, since it will be harder to learn.
  • Try to find a unique name so that your cat doesn't mix it up with other words for your daily vocabulary.

Now that's been said, we can move on to our list of unique names for tomcats.

My cat always shared my own surname. After all, we were family. The vets inevitably used my surname to identify him whether I mentioned it or not, such as when prescribing for him. It just makes sense.
