We Demand More Clever Cat Names!

A lady at the Wisconsin Humane Society is a talented cat namer.

Until September 7th I will give 10 cents to an animal charity for every comment. It is a way to help animal welfare without much effort at no cost. Comments help this website too, which is about animal welfare.

I think they’re great names but it’s all a matter of taste. However, imagination must play a role and a good name does catch the eye. Therefore, naming a cat imaginatively is probably one aspect of marketing cats at rescues who need new homes. The names might be inspired by the names cat breeders give to their exotic fancy purebred cats.

At the moment I don’t know this lady’s name. The picture below is of her and “the dear Professor PuddinPop on Ozaukee University (I work at the Ozaukee Campus of this humane society)”. She works at the Ozaukee campus of the Wisconsin Humane Society as I understand it.

The ‘professor’ (PuddinPop) got his Ph.D. in string theory! Entre-Purrrr-neurship. Dr PuddinPop spent 6 years at Cute Cat University.

These observations come from the Reddit website. It is said that all cat people have a Reddit account! A very clever commentator made the following comment:

Your wife names all the cats with a title, then one stressed syllable followed by two unstressed syllables. I guess that makes her polydactyl?

That is what I call subtle. You need to have an English degree to get it.

  1. I love those names!

    I usually keep mine sort and sweet. The first little lady on the left is my beloved Cujo. She was a Manx cat, a very cranky little girl who was definitely not a cuddle cat. Whenever we did cuddle Cujo would give me this look of extreme irritation: “Are we done here, woman? Unhand me!” She never became aggressive. She always tolerated my attention. Why Cujo? I always wanted a female cat with that name.

    The second cat on the right is my current furchild, Samirah. Her name is Arabic for “Entertaining Companion” and she’s definitely been that. Her previous name was Cherub. My vet tech friends always joke that any cat named Honey, Sweetie or Baby will most likely rip your face off. You can add “Cherub” to that list. We’ve had our moments.

  2. This is Sealy’s wife Mrs. Gizzy Houdini. She’s the reason the front door can never be left unguarded while we get in groceries.
