For Pets Best Insurance
It’s said that laughter is the best medicine, and as a practicing veterinarian and pet insurance enthusiast, I know this this true! So here’s a dose of laughter that is sure to keep you healthy. I’ve always been amused by the funny names people choose for their cats. Here are some of the best that I’ve come across in my time as a vet.
1. Bird Dog
It’s what the owner really wanted to get, but a cat fit his lifestyle better. The poor kitty has to bear the brunt of the owner’s wishful thinking.
Technically that’s what a cat is, so I can’t argue with this one.
3. Dog Food
A cat could be this too, I suppose. But I hope not! Unfortunately, we’ve seen our share of cats that have been chewed on or bitten by dogs. It’s instances like these where cat insurance can come in handy.
My colleague examined this cat. But his demeanor wasn’t as scary as his name implies.
5. Albus Percival Peanut
He started out as just Peanut, but that was too plain and his owners thought his name needed more bling! I’d say they achieved this goal.
6. Buttsey Wiggle
This is one of my all time favorites! It’s descriptive and cute. I always laugh when I see my own cats do their impression of “buttsey wiggle” when they’re about to pounce on an object.
7. Chunky Butt
There’s just something about those big, fluffy, kitty posteriors that captures owners’ imaginations!
8. Monk E. Buht
Of course, a guy came up with this one! Need I say more?
9. Skimbleshanks and Grizabella
They’re both from the T. S. Eliot poem and Broadway play “CATS”, but the first one is much harder to roll off the tongue.
10. Leonardo DiCatrio
There’ s plenty of famous people to play off their names.
11. Harley Davidson
If you have a cool last name, why not take advantage of it?

12. Nickat Knight
Another last name you can work with. This refers to Nick at Night on the Nickelodeon channel, I belileve.
Also known as “Not Bill’s Cat.” When this stray was found, Bill said “This is not going to be my cat.” The cat had other ideas. Sorry Bill.
14. Very Delicious Omelet
This wins my category of most bizarre. This kitty suddenly appeared on the back deck one morning when the owners were cooking an omelet. Apparently they were good cooks, too. So what else could they call her, right?
