150 punny cat names… and counting

I was browsing the list of terms that bring people to this blog (as you do), and I realized that quite a few people are searching for punny cat names. I’ve shared several on the blog, but I’ve never compiled them into one post. Today, that changes.

Dear Cat Lover:

Thank you for visiting this blog in search of punny cat names, despite the puppy-focused title. Although I’m currently a crazy dog lady, my first love was a cat. I still consider myself one of you. Honestly, a more accurate title for this blog would be “I Still Want More Puppies and a Cat or Two, But My Dogs Would Chase Them so I Can’t Actually Have a Cat.” Catchy, right? I totally should have gone with that one.

someecards.com - There's nothing like watching cat videos to help me pass the time until I can see my cat again.

… or to fill that cat-sized hole in my heart.

I tend to make a lot of puns. One might even say that I make a lot of bad puns. However, if even one of those puns can bring joy to your life – or a punny name to a feline in search of an identity – then all of this punning will be worth it.

Over the years, I’ve shared several punny cat names on this blog. Although last year I shared a list of punny names to date, it wasn’t cat-specific. So, in order to make your life easier, I’ve compiled them all into one comprehensive list below.

(As a bonus, I added a few new ones. You’ll also find a few that I thought could work for both dogs and cats. If I found it somewhere else before I thought of it myself, I’ve linked to that source.)

  1. i call my cats “muss” instead of “puss”, so…

    mussolini or (if you’ve ever seen the nz film ‘once were warriors’, jake the muss. neither one i’ve used, for kind of obvious reasons, but i can’t stop thinking they’d be great punny names!

  2. my latest cat is a real handful… always getting the better of me, I can’t win…
    name = Mission imPUSSable…

  3. Great list. My 10 yr old daughter and I are trying to name our kitten and cant agree on ANYTHING! I love this list—many she doesnt get but she liked William Shakespurr. I am a huge Beatles fan—I came up with Pawl McCatney–get it—Paul McCartney. Ha. Ha.

  4. These are NOT puns, these are names with cat phrases and such. For example of a REAL punny cat name would be, a few years back I was asked to help someone name their kitten who had survived against all odds when found in a bad condition and I suggested Sir Vivor, THAT is punny because the cat was a survivor. Again I was asked for help on a cat’s name recently who was adopted from a shelter and likes to watch her new owner, just staring at her and I suggested Sir Veillance (Lance for short). Changing real life people’s names for cats is cute, not punny.

    • Have you ever thought that sometimes everyone else is wrong and you are right Heather?
      Well, let me tell you Heather, this isn’t one of those times…

      you have two alleged puns you thought of a few years ago about cats that are based on the same word, this does earn you a phd in cat puns…

  5. I don’t know why Heather’s comment frustrates me so much, but here are a few possible reasons. While these names do not adhere to the literal definition of the term “pun,” there is also a socially accepted definition which is more loosely translated as a play on words. Secondly, this is just a fun little list for people to enjoy… No need to be rude. And third, when telling everyone that you ACTUALLY created several feline names that were more traditional puns, you come across like that obnoxious kid at college that loves to raise their hand to prove the professors wrong, the kind that starts most sentences with “well, ACTUALLY…” So perhaps, be polite next time. It’s a list of funny cat names for goodness sake, not SAT prep.

  6. Payton Catting (Payton Manning)
    Cattin America (Captain America)
    Purry Farrell or Feral (Perry Farrell – Jane’s Addiction)

  7. We named a cat after the great Olympic hurdler Edwin C. Moses. This cat could jump to the top of a 8 ft. Privacy fence in one leap. Therefore he became Edwin C. Meowses.

  8. We have four cats. Their names are Kathmandu, Mitt Jagger (he is polydactyl with mitten shaped feet.), Mr. Meowgi, and Kat Sajak. They are beautiful Highlanders.

  9. We recently lost our beloved Rottweiler/Lab mix. Big old boy, all black, built like a Rot, cropped tail… His name was Donovan McNubb… he was a Super Star too ! loved your puns ! thanks… Anna

  11. My neighbors moved and left a purrfectly loveable cat behind so my husband and adopted her we never knew her name so we called her ” Asker “

  12. I recently got a new kitten. I was looking at this list and bouncing off names to my mom, then she came up with a clever name that’s currently pop culture-y:

    Stephen Purry (after NBA star Stephen Curry).

  13. Ingrid Furman
    Grace Kitty
    Mary Pickfur
    Lauren Backclaw
    Sally FieldCat
    Joan Clawford
    Maureen O’Hairy
    Clawdette Colbert
    Puma Therman
    Jessica Tabby
    Marhissa Tomey

    And of course…. Robert Redfur

  14. what about the great songs written about cats?

    More Than A Feline – Boston
    You’ve lost that lovin’ Feline – Righteous Brothers
    Feline Making Love – Bad Company

  15. These cat puns are my life. Before I found these my life was dull and boring but I have since seen the light. Neil Catrick Harris is without a doubt the best name for anything in the world. I hope to someday find a blonde, homosexual, blue-eyed cat of which I can name Neil Catrick Harris. Leonardo DiCatrio is also a personal favorite. In fact, I want to adopt 60 cats to fulfill my need of punny cat names. To the creator of this blog; thank you. Your creativity has made my life meaningful once more.
