Part of the joy of adopting a new pet is knowing you've just added a new addition to the family. From this day forward, they'll greet you when you come home, rely on you for affection and care, and keep you company. Another highlight? Getting to know their personality and picking out a special name to suit it. However, this isn't necessarily an easy process. (Especially if you have multiple people in the family who all have different ideas of what you should call your new cat.) A lot of thought tends to go into selecting a name for a pet, which makes sense seeing as your cat will keep this name for the rest of its life. If you search around for cat names, you'll find a variety of options, including ones inspired by food and others that come from famous warriors. For those with a black and white cat, you might also consider a moniker that will reflect your cat's beautiful coat color. For example, a cat's black-and-white coat resembles a tuxedo, a panda bear, or a classic Oreo cookie. As you're reading this list of names, you might choose a few that you like. If you need assistance deciding on the best option, try calling your cat each one and monitor how they respond to help you choose.
