How to pick a cat name

Now just because you adopted your cat around Halloween (or even just because you love Halloween) doesn’t necessarily mean you have to give your cat a Halloween inspired name!

Picking a name for your cat should be fun, but you’ll also want to carefully consider things like her personality and the fact that she’ll have this name forever — and not just during Halloween.

So as long as you’re comfortable calling your cat Cobweb no matter the time of year, give your cat the name you think is the most fitting — and fun — for the both of you.
