Both Christmas and our feline friends bring us so much joy, why shouldn’t we combine them and name our cats after Christmas? Christmas cat names are ideal for people who have a soft spot for the holidays.
This includes folks (like me) who start singing Christmas carols in September, do all of their holiday shopping as early as November, know all the Home Alone movies by heart, and watch every Hallmark holiday movie ever made.
If you get your new cat around the holidays, giving it a Christmas-inspired name is a terrific way to commemorate the event.
