Hello World!

By Category: How To Name A Cat, Cat Names, Hello World!
OMG! I’m so excited! My own blog! I even have a pen name. My real name’s Jessie. Or that’s what our human calls me. Cats don’t call each other human names.

Our human put a lot of thought into my name. She knows cats like the sound of “s” in a name and respond to names that end in “eee.” And here’s something else you should know if you’re naming a cat. We don’t only hear our names, we pick up on your thoughts when you’re saying them. So if you call a cat Stinky (ugh… I hope you won’t!), he’ll see himself as smelly and disgusting every time you say his name.

Here’s one more thing to know: Always try to say your cat’s name the same way. If our human called me Jessie sometimes and Jesss-eee other times, I wouldn’t know who the heck she was talking to.

Oh. Oops! Our human just said if I want to use a pen name, I shouldn’t tell you my real name. Okay. So just think of me as Thomasina. I really like that name, even though it doesn’t end in “eee.”
