Choosing a nickname for your pet is no less painstaking task than choosing a name for your child. First of all, check what sounds the kitten reacts best to.
Cats are most susceptible to nicknames with the letters "w", "h" and "s". But do not try to come up with a name with all the consonants at once: even if the nickname does not contain any of them, the cat will get used to it.
Pay attention to the length of the nickname. The shorter the nickname for a cat, the better. Double and triple names sound majestic and unusual, but even exhibition cats with blue ribbons are not called that in ordinary life. Five-letter names are the easiest to remember.
If you still prefer the long nicknames of cats, think about pet names. During your life, side by side with your beloved, you will come up with more than one such thing. But it’s better to immediately make sure that the chosen name produces harmonious derivatives.
Know that the choice of nickname depends not only on you - consider cat tastes as well. Call the pet with your chosen name several times, changing the intonation. If the cat responds to the nickname, then she likes her. Otherwise, come up with another option - in stubbornness with cats it is better not to compete.
There are some other factors that may suggest good nicknames for cats:
- breed of pet: Persian cat - Pusya, Persephone, Siamese - Sima, Simka,
- behavior: a tender kitty can become Weasel or Murlyka, a lover of sleep - Sonya,
- color: based on it, you can come up with cute cat names - Haze, Snowball, Peach,
- your profession or hobby: programmers can call a cat Mouse or Claudia, astrology lovers - Venus or Stela,
- favorite artists or characters, including those from the cat family - Luna, Nala, Bagheera, Matilda.
While the kitten is small, I just want to call it gentle, playful names. Sometimes children's nicknames - Sausage, Bead, Manyunya - remain with a cat for life.
It so happens that the nickname was chosen before the appearance of the pet, but when looking at the cat they realized that the name was not at all right. Do not be discouraged, for certain new options will come to mind that will correspond to your darling.

What names for cats are undesirable
Although it all depends on imagination and tastes, there are names for cats that are best avoided:
- nicknames of deceased pets - start with a new animal from scratch,
- curses and derivatives from them - neither the cat nor those around will appreciate such dubious humor,
- names that do not fit the cat. So, a bully and a minx named Chanel will not cope with the fashionable burden placed on her,
- nicknames, consonant with the names of other pets in the house, because you call one - everyone will come running,
- the names of family members - and get confused for a short time, especially when talking with friends,
- Trendy or pretty nicknames you don’t like. The cat does not need self-affirmation. So why do you need it?
Since cats are considered guards of the owners from evil spirits, it is not recommended to call them names associated with evil spirits. Even the most harmful kitten does not deserve the nickname Witch or Azaazel.
Calling a cat simply a Cat is also not worth it, although fans of the movie "Breakfast at Tiffany's" will not agree with this. Sometimes this is done not at all from a lack of imagination, but from philosophical considerations: the main character of the picture left the cat nameless, believing that she has no right to give a name to another independent being.
Whatever your choice, it must be final. Renaming a cat is a bad and ungrateful undertaking. Therefore, choose wisely.
