Cats bring joy to our lives any time of year, but bringing one home during the long summer months is a special treat. Not only does it mean helping out the animal shelters that are overburdened during warm-weather season, but italso means you'll have a cat born or adopted under the Cancer zodiac sign. When you bring your new kitty home, think about giving it a name that goes along with its sign.
The sun enters the sign of Cancer on July 23 and hangs around until August 22, so pets as well as people born in this period tend to have similar personality (or purr-sonality, if you will) traits. Cancerians are home-loving, happiest being around their families, per Astrology.com, and enjoy entertaining (especially when it means preparing and serving good food). Like their human counterparts, Cancer-born cats are sensitive and wear their emotions on their sleeve — er, fur. Because they demand a lot of love and attention (per the Dr. Standley website), it's wise not to leave your pet home alone for too long.
These Cancer-inspired cat names should help you make that all-important "what should we call it" decision once your get your fur baby home. Whatever you choose, be sure to give it plenty of love (and water — because kitties need plenty of summer hydration).
