Now that you have a new friend in your home, it’s time to name them something worthwhile. Before going about and giving them any random name, it’s important to examine their personality and see what fits. Just as human beings feel disrespected when abused or neglected, so may cats. A great name is a sign of care and effort, since it shows that you put enough time to think of something that isn’t just ‘black cat.’
