In honor of National Cat Day on Oct. 29, Pumpkin Pet Insurance, a pet health insurance and wellness provider, released the nation’s most comprehensive list to date of cat names. With the recent spike in pet adoptions, Pumpkin has seen increased demand by new pet parents looking for the purrfect names for their furry companions.
Drawing inspiration from the company’s extensive roster of insured animals along with conducting its own independent research, Pumpkin’s team of pet experts compiled popular and creative names to complement the most common types of cat breeds and fur colors. Each feline name has a detailed description of its origins and meaning to help pet parents find the identifier that best suits their animal’s persona.
- For Siamese Cats: Cleopatra, Warhol and Safira
- For Tabby Cats: Ripples, Marbles and Tabitha
- For Black Cats: Blackjack, Onyx and Zorro
- For Orange Cats: Blaze, Marigold and Pumpkin
In creating a go-to resource for new cat moms and dads, Pumpkin hopes to make the process of selecting a name as personalized as possible, and as fun as welcoming a new pet into the fur family.
