Oct. 29 is National Cat Day, which means it's the perfect time to celebrate the actual royal family: felines. Have you ever met a cat that didn't think it was better than you? No, and that's the beauty of cats. Which is why having cat names picked by kids is the ultimate way to keep your new furry little friend humble. Yeah, you don't seem quite as snarky when your name is Pudding, my friend.
But cats are the best. We adopted a 3-year-old cat two years ago named Cowboy Bob (we didn't change his name), and he is everyone's favorite family member. (Except for when he's whining for food or attacking our feet under the covers, etc.) Our 1-year-old will find him in the house purely so she can rub her entire body on him, and our 5-year-old loves for him to sleep directly on top of her. Basically, he's a keeper, but our favorite thing is telling someone his name. "We have a cat. His name is Cowboy Bob," our 5-year-old will tell complete strangers in the grocery store, and everyone laughs.
So if you're gaining a new family member for National Cat Day, or just need some unique and adorable cat names in your back pocket, I present this list of 14 from real kids. You will love every single one. (Olives! Banjo! Butterfly!)
