If you've decided to adopt a new cat into the family this summer, then congratulations. That cat or kitten is probably thrilled to have a new home. To commemorate the occasion, consider a July cat name for your newest four-legged family member. These cat names inspired by Independence Day, as well as summer itself, are sure to please even the most picky of felines.
Plus, by adopting a cat in the summer months, you're helping shelters get through kitten season. Running from late spring through early fall, kitten season is the time of year most kittens are born, as explained in the Animal Shelter Assistance Program. The influx of kittens can put a strain on shelter's resources, so it's an especially helpful time of year to adopt (although there's no bad time to adopt an animal, really). Plus, you will literally have the pick of the litter, because there's likely to be a huge selection of cats in need of homes.
For plenty of people, July is a time of celebration. It means Fourth of July festivities, backyard cookouts, and beach vacations. And this celebratory time is also pretty ideal for bringing a new kitty into your home. Grace your cat with one of these summery, patriotic names inspired by the fun and festive month of July.
