Crazy and Creative Cat Names

Is there anything cuter, cuddlier, and more boisterous than an adorable little kitten, or more regal, graceful, and beautiful than a cat? Cats and kittens make wonderful pets, and add so much to our lives. With that in mind, you’ll want your kitty to have a special name, one that you will both like. The people at the Wisconsin Humane Society have quite a knack for coming up with unusual names for the cats and kittens that come through there. Read on to see the crazy and creative names they have come up with!

 The Humane Society of Wisconsin’s Crazy and Creative Names for Cats

People find names for their kitties in many ways. It may be a name that fits their personality or their appearance, a hooman name, or a celebrity or superhero name. The name may already be attached to the cat when you get it, and you may keep that name or change to another. Here are some crazy, creative names that the folks at the Wisconsin Humane Society came up with for the cats that stay there till they find their furrever homes. Wisconsin Humane Society Cats

Here we have Professor PuddinPop, Provolone, and Wompus.

Other kitties at the Wisconsin Humane Society were given names that included Colonel Snazzypants and the Good King Snugglewumps, Lester, Zena, Vespa, Mighty Mouse, Waldorf, and Adrien Brody. Three gray 3-month-old littermates were named Wuzzy Woo, Fuzzy, and Wuzzle.

They named a dog Pepsi, and two guinea pigs Snickers and Sherlock. Some pretty creative names! I think a few were based on what someone was eating that day!
Name Your Cat The Humane Society names gave the author of the post, Kelly Faircloth, an idea for a more creative cat name:

“It’s almost enough for me to reconsider my firmly held conviction that human names are the best names for cats. “Tom,” say, is pretty good, but this makes me think, “Mister Tom T. Bombadil Attorney at Law” would be better.”

We like it! Mister Tom T. Bombadil, Attorney at Law is a great name. Of course, I’m sure it would be shortened back to just “Tom”, or maybe “Mister” for everyday use, but for anything legal, or for when Mister Tom gets into things he shouldn’t, his full name could be used.

We found even more crazy and creative names in the comments for that post.

 Sneakys says: My cat is not Eleanor. She is Eleanor of Aquitaine, Queen Dowager of England. And don’t you forget it.

Code Name V says: My local humane society had a cat up for adoption named Edgar Allen Purr. I WANTED HIM SO BAD.

Will they or won’t they? says: When my cat Bittens was at the humane society, they named her Angel. it’s like they didn’t know her at all.

Kind shoe says: Best name ever seen on a shelter site: Lord Business, for a wrinkly brown puppy with eyebrows.

Molliemlf05 says: I would name all of them after the entire company of Cats. “Would you like to adopt Grizabella, Macavity, or Mr. Mistoffellees?”

Cats the Muscial

Edgar Allen Purr! Love it! And speaking of the musical Cats, those cats had some pretty crazy names, too. Besides the three mentioned above (Grizabella, Macavity, and Mr. Mistoffelees), how about these?
