How to Pick the Best Spooky Cat Name
Choosing the very best name for your spooky cat comes with a bit of effort and possibly some research involved.
Below, we’ve laid out several important questions you should ask yourself before committing to any one spooky name for your cat:
What Color is Your Cat?
The color of your cat is one of the main factors that may be helpful in finding its perfect name. If your cat is black, grey, or multi-colored, it’ll be even easier to find a great spooky name for it.
Certain cats, like white fluffy ones, aren’t exactly as naturally spooky-looking, so finding them a spooky name will be more of a challenge.
How Spooky is Your Cat?
The spookiness level of your cat is another great factor to consider while searching for and selecting the right spooky name for your new kitty.
Is it a solid black cat? Or, does it have a feisty attitude, and the brains to match, the combination giving it a witchy vibe?
Pay attention to this factor and weigh in on it before committing to any old spooky-sounding cat name for your new pet.
How Does the Cat Behave?
The behavior and personality traits that your cat displays are another great source for naming inspiration. The way it walks, the way it purrs, and the way it reacts to other people and pets are just a few of the cues you can look for to help peg the right name for your cat.
Where Did the Cat Come From?
The origins of your cat, meaning, exactly where it came from, how you came to be its new owner, and any other interesting factors, are another great help when searching for that perfect spooky pet name.
Did you rescue the cat? Was it a gift from a family member? It is a therapy pet? All of these little questions may help you think of the most suitable name for your cat.
Do You Have Other Pets?
Whether or not you have other pets is one factor that many folks overlook when naming a new kitty.
However, if you have several pets, with themed names, you may want to take the extra time to come up with the best fitting name for your family of pets, rather than focus on the perfect spooky name.
What Are Your Favorite Spooky Things?
Taking the time to think of, and possibly write down, a list of all your very favorite spooky things, and the various aspects of spooky stuff that make you fond of it is a great practice when you’re in search of a great and spooky cat name.
Is it the Halloween cat names that you consider spooky? Or do you prefer spooky subject matter, such as paranormal creatures and/or serial killer-type stuff? The answer makes a world of difference in nailing down the right name for your new kitten.
Final Thoughts About Your Spooky Cat’s Name
Your spooky cat deserves just the right name, whatever that may be in your case.
Hopefully, with the giant list of names above, you’ve successfully found the purrfect name for your new kitty.
