Getting a new cat and need a name? Unisex cat names are a traditional way of naming your cat. Often, unisex cat names focus on the color of your cat, the way they move, or some other personal attribute associated with their character or essence.
The best cat names tend to be short, easy to pronounce, and clear sounding. It helps if you can shout them clearly if needed. Many unisex cat names fulfill those criteria!
Half the attraction with a unisex name is that your cat’s gender is totally irrelevant – no one will know the gender of your cat and you can pick a name without having to consider if it fits their gender. Simples…
