When adopting a pet, the first thing you need to do is to name your cat or dog. Pet names range from common people names (Charlie) to celebrity names (Madonna) to attribute names (Spot). Whatever you decide to name your pet, it should be something that you’ll be comfortable with for a long time as your cat or dog will quickly identify with that name and will respond accordingly when called.

During the naming process, be sure to get all people responsible for the pet (e.g. family members, housemates) involved in the process. Everyone will feel more connected to their new furry friends if they have a say in the process. Coming to a consensus on a name can be a trying process but worth the work to ensure that everyone is happy with the decision. If you are a parent, you know how much effort you went through to ensure that you and your spouse were happy with the choice. Go through a similar process when naming your pet.
