If you have decided to adopt a cat into your home, you should bear in mind that these are pets that, although many claim to be very independent, love their owners. They are very intelligent animals that are capable of understanding many things if you teach them.
With the approach of Christmas, many households are preparing to add a new member to their family. In addition to consulting a veterinarian about its health, it is essential to know how you will name your kitten.
When naming a kitten, some people take into account whether their cat is sturdy, slender, playful, calm, others even look for a name related to its coat color, the way it walks or a characteristic that defines it more deeply.
You should keep in mind that experts say felines learn short names faster, i.e. names with no more than three syllables. In addition, it’s important to use repetition and ask all family members to call the cat by the name you choose.
Also keep in mind that if you want to train your cat, the name should not resemble or rhyme with a command or word used in training.
