CAT NAMES ARE IMPORTANT. BECAUSE CATS DO LISTEN.
Some people think cats don’t listen to names. Not true. Cats listen very well, and if you say its name often and clear it will soon recognize it. If you consequently call your kitten’s name, it will associate the sound of it with food, play and other pleasant activities.
A name becomes even more important if your kitten comes from a planned mating between pedigree animals, because then the name has to be registered. Professional cat breeders will tell you more about this.
