It was Garfield who placed ginger cats on the map and not only did he become a household name, he also became the namesake of thousands of other ginger cats.

It's really not that hard if you have one cat but it could be a something to think about if you have many cats at home. You can try to look for some cat name suggestions to help you out.

Black Cat Names for Your New Cat

It’s a sad fact that many black cats never get adopted from shelters, especially when they are some of the most beautiful cats you will ever see. When many people see a black cat, they are automatically superstitious, and think that the cat is going to bring bad luck.

In days past, black cats were associated with witches, and were said to be evil. But think about this. In North America, the superstition is that it is bad luck to have a black cat cross your path. In the UK, it is good luck. Now, doesn’t that just tell you that superstitions, at least this one, are a bunch of bunk?

If you are planning on adopting a black cat, congratulations. You are not only giving a shelter cat a fabulous home where it will be loved and cared for, but you are also bringing a sleek and gorgeous best friend into your life. You may be wondering what you should name your new furry friend. May we suggest that you take a look at some of the names on the following list?

Each has a description, and one may be the ideal name to suit the personality of your new pet. Many of these names are associated with the dark, including witchcraft, but they are still pretty cool names.

1. Grimalkin

If your cat is female, this is a great name, especially if she has a mean face. Grimalkin was a very mean looking female cat, and was associated with witchcraft in the middle ages. If someone were to possess a Grimalkin, it was proof that they practiced witchcraft and led to being burned at the stake.

2. Grimoire

Pronounced “grim-war,” this is the name given to a book of magic spells used by magicians and witches. Spells included creating magical objects, summoning the spirits, placing curses or charms on people, etc. You may already know about one famous Grimoire, “The Book of Shadows.”

3. Imp

This is an adorable name for any cat. An imp is a character from German folklore, a small goblin that was said to be very mischievous. How perfect is that for a cat, especially when cats are known for their mischievous nature? But, imps love friends, and they seek friendship, which is exactly what your shelter cat will need.

4. Raven

A black cat with sleek-looking fur would be proud to be called Raven. In folklore, ravens are said to be cunning and sneaky, which is the same personality we see in a lot of cats. Plus, ravens, like cats, are highly intelligent animals that can and do respond positively to interaction with humans.

5. Ebony

This is a different word for black, and it is a very nice name for a pet, particularly a black cat. If you are bringing home a male cat and feel that this name is too “girly” for your boy, shorten the name to “Ebon.” It sounds cool, and you can be guaranteed that no one else you know is going to have a pet with the same name.

6. Hollyhock

Here is an interesting and cute name for a black female cat. The Black Magic Hollyhock is a gorgeous black flower, and it is a great name for a black cat, especially if she is very fluffy. A luxurious looking cat deserves a beautiful and luxurious name, and Hollyhock fits the bill quite nicely.

7. Onyx

Onyx is a beautiful, shiny, black gemstone, and it is also a wonderful name for a black cat. The best part about this name is that it can work for both female and male cats. This would be the ideal name for a short-haired, black cat that has shiny, sleek fur that shines just like the onyx gemstone.

8. Ink

If you are an artist, you may like this name for your black cat. After all, you work with ink and other mediums, and black fur can be very inky looking. In fact, you could even call your cat “Inky,” which is not only an apt name for a black cat, but also a very cute one, and good for males or females.

9. Vader

Star Wars fans may love having a black cat named Vader. Of course, this is a name that is probably best for a male cat, since Darth Vader is a male. A lot of people jokingly say that cats are planning on taking over the world someday. Vader wanted to do the same thing, so what better name could you give to your cat?

Conclusion

These are just a few of the cool names you can give to your new black cat. Another option is to combine some of these names to come up with something that is really creative, and truly unique to your furry friend.

Birthday Cat: Hosting Your Cat’s Birthday in Style

It’s no secret that you love your cat. If you are someone who entertains the idea of reading about ways to make the life of your cat even better, then you’ve obviously come to the right place. Hosting your cat’s birthday is an activity to show your love for your cat, and get together with friends and family members. A birthday cat would certainly love that.

The best thing you can do is to make sure you invite all your cat-loving friends and it’s probably a good idea if stick to a human-only guest list. The cats we’ve come to know and love aren’t always inclined to interact… or to play nice with other cats. So, to keep things peaceful, keep your cat happy and half-asleep on the couch… unless they wish to investigate the curious new creatures in the house or perhaps even pick a new lap to lie on.

Some people might ask: “Why would you want to host a party for a cat? They’re so… aloof.” Well, that’s exactly why. We would do this so that hopefully, our cats would love us more. Plus, it’s a good excuse to have like-minded people over.

How Will You Get This Show On the Road?

Determine a Theme

Your cat might not be able to verbalize what they want or like, so you’ll just have to take the lead on this one. Chances are good that your cat will approve of your initiative in their own special way.

Themes have to be age-appropriate. That is the rule that applies not only to people, but also to our feline friends.  There is no better time to host a Japanese-themed sushi party.  Not only will the enticing aroma of salmon serve as one way to get your cat involved, but we’re also banking on the possibility that your pet will be as affectionate to the point where you’re wondering: “Who’s cat is this?”

Prepping

You’re not cutting corners here. You wouldn’t want that for your own party, so feel free to plan this soiree like Kim Kardashian is invited. Naturally, this all depends on your budget, so get into the details.  You can choose to either make use of e-vites or hand-created ones to set a really quirky tone for the party. Remember, the devil is in the details…

Begin with your guest list and work from there.  Once you’ve determined your budget, theme and guest list, you can get to work. 

Since you are inviting human guests, you’ll have to cater to their specific palates (a little bit more on birthday cakes for cats later).  When in doubt, opt for tapas. It’s easy to serve and can blend in seamlessly with any theme you select for your kitty’s birthday bash.

Tuna Tunes

Every party needs a playlist. No matter how ridiculous the thought might be to sing the happy birthday song to your cat. You’ll want to sneak in a few tracks to ensure that you can solidify your status as a kitty caterer of sorts. There are songs produced specifically for cats and yes, you need to go big, or go home.

If your party is very niched in its theme, then it should be easy to create a playlist that gets the party started. A party isn’t a party without a few tracks to loosen the vibe.

While not all of your guests might be fine-tuned (so to speak) into the subtle nuances and feline references on your playlist, you’ll do well by creating a drinking game where guests can ask the host whether or not the current song that’s playing is cat-related. It’s up to you to determine their fate in the game… Line those shots up and test your musical knowledge.

Getting The Purr-ty Started

Even if this were “just” a fete for your cat, you would still have to bend over backwards to make sure that your guests are happy.  You will have to prepare well in advance like you would with any other get-together.

Only this time around, the birthday cake would have to adopt a cat-friendly approach.  We’re thinking tuna, shrimp and maybe even some cheese. Don’t roll your eyes… its quite easy to make and you are already invested, so make this happen.

A cake! For your cat! Who would’ve thought?

Now that you know who’s coming, what the theme is and how to maximize its authenticity with delectable snacks and drinks, you can draw up your planning sheet and start downloading those tunes.

Here are 5 simple ways to celebrate a birthday cat:

What’s the one thing that you can tick off from your list without even lifting a finger? Grooming. Your cat’s got that one covered…

Black Cat Names and History

For the longest period of time, black cats were seen as tokens of  all types of luck and despite this, they still bring joy to their owners. The most prominent black cat, black cat names and history we all know of is probably from TV Cartoons named Felix 🙂 Not only did he garner a huge fan-base, but he was also one of the earliest cartoon characters to appeal to a universal audience. Historically, most black cats have been seen as bad luck, but our dear Felix only possessed the goods for besting even the most undesirable situations.

Luckily, not all black cats have been thought of in such a negative way. Many cultures in history have considered black cats as a godsend.

Ancient Egypt

Many are aware that Egyptians are well-known for worshiping cats. One such example was the goddess Bastet, who stood as a symbol of both honesty and prosperity. In images, we see her as a being with a female human body and bearing a cat's head. Most often, the coloring of the cat is black. In their efforts to please this goddess, many Egyptian households cared for their own black cats.

England and Ireland

Those who are familiar with mythology in this area will be aware of the trickery that can come from fairy folk. One of these tricky fairies came in the form of a fairy in the body of a large, black cat. Known as Cat Sith, this black cat bore a single white spot which helped to tell it apart from others. It's from beings like Cat Sith that the thoughts of bad luck came to be. While many believed it was a fairy, there are also some who thought it was a witch trapped in the body of a cat instead.

North America

During the early ages of America, as it was still being settled, rumors of witches came into being. However, not only did people fear the witches themselves, but also their familiars. If you don't know, familiars are generally animal sidekicks to witches that help to do their bidding. One such familiar was the black cat, which sometimes included witches taking on the form of the animal themselves.

Because of this, many began to fear black cats and their ability to roam the night without being seen. As people became more suspicious, such stories about these poor creatures only grew.

Continental Europe

Meanwhile, there were similar fears about black cats going on in European countries. As a result, many would kill off black cats out of fear that they were something evil in disguise. Some also thought that this also played into the increase of rats and disease that spread around that time.

Below are some of the cutest, funnies and adorable black cat names for your cat:

Types Of Black Cats

1. Bombay

This rather common breed was once nicknamed the “panther for your parlor.” The Bombay is a hybrid of the black American Shorthair and a Sable Burmese and originated in 1953. The Bombay achieved acceptance into the Cat Fancier Association’s (CFA) championship class in 1976.

2. Persian

One of the CFA’s most popular breeds, the black coat of the Persian cat is sleek, shiny and soft. This short-legged sweetheart commands attention and happily reciprocates with equal amounts of love.

3. Exotic

This Persian breed is another favorite with the CFA. It is known as the perfect cat for busy people, who loves the breeds, but lack the time for the required daily grooming. Panelists of the CFA dub exotics as the best-kept secret of the cat world.

4. Ragamuffin

Typically with large, expressive eyes and a coat as soft as silk, the show-stopping Ragamuffin is a calm, patient cat who’s more than eager to please. They are usually heavily boned, medium-sized cats with coats that do not mat, which is a definite standout feature of the cat.

5. Scottish Fold (long and shorthaired)

Their impish ears give the Scottish Fold a look of mischief. The cat is also known for a cute voice that sharply contrasts to their sturdy, rounded body. This hardy breed is born with straight ears that usually start ‘folding’ at three to four weeks of age.

6. American Bobtail

While this cat might have the appearance of a wild animal, their affectionate nature and intelligence will instantly change your views. American Bobtails are active and enjoy playtime. They are strongly devoted to their humans and remain loyal in their expressive nature.

“If you want to concentrate deeply on some problem, and especially some piece of writing or paper-work, you should acquire a cat. Alone with the cat in the room where you work ... the cat will invariably get up on your desk and settle placidly under the desk lamp ... The cat will settle down and be serene, with a serenity that passes all understanding. And the tranquility of the cat will gradually come to affect you, sitting there at your desk, so that all the excitable qualities that impede your concentration compose themselves and give your mind back the self-command it has lost. You need not watch the cat all the time. Its presence alone is enough. The effect of a cat on your concentration is remarkable, very mysterious.”

98. Helen Brown

“Guilt isn't in cat vocabulary. They never suffer remorse for eating too much, sleeping too long or hogging the warmest cushion in the house. They welcome every pleasurable moment as it unravels and savour it to the full until a butterfly or falling leaf diverts their attention. They don't waste energy counting the number of calories they've consumed or the hours they've frittered away sunbathing.

99. Helen Brown

Cats don't beat themselves up about not working hard enough. They don't get up and go, they sit down and stay. For them, lethargy is an art form. From their vantage points on top of fences and window ledges, they see the treadmills of human obligations for what they are - a meaningless waste of nap time.”

103. Catherynne M. Valente

“Because I’m a cat. A big one, the Panther of Rough Storms, in fact. But still a cat. If there’s a saucer of milk to spill, I’d rather spill it than let it lie. If my mistress grows absent-minded and leaves a ball of yarn about, I’ll bat it between my paws, and unravel it. Because it’s fun. Because it’s what cats do best.”

104. Denise Flaim

“I hated cats. I was a dog lover," Des says with a shrug. "What's the point of a cat? They're not affectionate. But that's because it's not my cat. I mean, your wife wouldn't jump on my lap. That's because she's your wife, not mine. Until you have your own cat, you really don't understand.”

105. William Lyon Phelps

109. Kij Johnson

“Cats have a sort of game they play when they meet. A player alternates between watching the strange cat and ignoring her, grooming or examining everything around herself - a dead leaf, a cloud - with complete absorption. It is almost accidental how the two cats approach, a sidelong step and then the sitting again. This often ends in a flurry of spitting and slashing claws, too fast to see clearly, and then one or the other (or both) of the cats leap out of range. The game can have one exchange or many - and is not so different from the first meetings of women.”

110. Charles Bukowski

“Cats tell me without effort all that there is to know.”
