Now that you've decided that you should add a cat to your family, it's time to think about what you're going to call your furry friend. Whether you're a chef, a home cook, or maybe just enjoy delicious food, a food name for your cat can be an excellent choice. Just how cats all have different demeanors, there is a variety of names on this list to fit your pet's personality. If your cat is sweet and cuddly, then you might like some dessert-inspired options, such as Brownie, Candy, Cupcake, or Oreo, especially if your cat is black and white, like the cookie. For the feistier felines, the names Cinnamon, Anise, Paprika, and Tobasco are a few spicy names.

If you're really searching for something outside the box, don't worry, we have you covered. We doubt you know a four-legged friend named Anjou, Basil, Rangoon, or Wonton. Any of these choices would make your cat one-of-a-kind.

Food Cat Names

The nice thing about these options is they work for all breeds, all sexes, and all ages of cats. If you're having a hard time finding the perfect name for your pet, think about which foods you like best. Are you a cheese lover? Maybe you should call your kitty Brie or Colby Jack. Are you always snacking on fruit? Think about naming your feline Cherry, Clemintine, Fig, or Plum. All of these options are unique and fun, so no matter what you choose, you can't go wrong.
