It is sometimes said that man’s best friend is a dog…but there is controversy: for many, the best pet is a cat. Moreover, according to statistics, there are almost 7 million pet dogs in France … compared to 15 million cats. So the French prefer felines. Felines that you have to find nicknames for (preferably more original ones than Félix or Minou) when you adopt them.
There is no strict rule in determining the first name of a cat, but there are symbolsEspecially for purebred cats, male or female. When adopted or purchased from a breeder, cats registered in the Official Book of Cat Origins (LOOF) will have a surname, that is, a family name, which is most often, the name of the nursery in which he was born, where he was raised. The owner can then choose a prefix, i.e. the first name.

Cat’s first name: 2022, year of the letter T.
For pedigree cats, the rule is to give the animal a first name that begins with the chosen letter corresponding to the year of birth determined by the Official Book of Cats’ Origins (LOOF). The rule that cat owners can overcome if they wish but allows to know immediately the year of birth of the animal. Moreover, many masters of non-pure cats follow this rule. 2022 is the year of names with the first letter T.
The letter T is an interesting letter for a cat’s first name because its explosive sound allows the animal to hear it easily. Sounds really matter in choosing a cat’s first name, male or female. Cats and kittens will remember more easily Short designations, of two syllables for example, with high tones, such as the vowel “i”. Thus “Titi” is easier to memorize than “Grosminet”.

Cat’s first name: personal name
No need to hurry. Before choosing the first name for his cat or cat, the master has time to make a decision. Unlike the declaration of civil status of a child (human) which must be made by the parents within three days. Thus, the owner of the cat or cat can take the time to study the behavior, habits and reactions of the animal to choose the first name that corresponds to it. Prefer ‘Dormer’ for less active cats or ‘Grumpy’ for unfriendly cats.
