About This Quiz

Let's face it: cats get a bad rap. Many people consider dogs to be superior pets because of their loyal and affectionate natures. But cats can be just as sweet and loving as dogs. They might also be more aloof, persnickety, mischievous, or adorable because cats have remarkably diverse personalities. Unlike dogs, they're not obsessed with pleasing others, which gives them more psychological range. But that's precisely why we love them, isn't it?

If your answer to that question is "yes," we want to hear more from you! Because this quiz is designed with true cat lovers in mind. We think that there are distinct patterns in how people name their cats, which are based on their cats' personalities. So, we need cat owners like you to put our theories to the test! 

We're going to ask you all about your cat, from their look and breed to whether they like to maul blankets. Your answers will be used to help us create a personality profile for your feline friend, which we'll match to various names in our database. When you finish the quiz, we'll give you our best guess as to what your fur baby's name is. Want to see if we get it right (or wrong)? Take this quiz!
