Tips for helping your cat learn their name
Cats are very intelligent animals but it can take time for them to learn their name, so it is important to be patient. During the naming period be sure to only use their chosen name positively and during positive experiences such as petting and receiving treats.
Say their name gently and softly. Avoid high pitched voices, aggressive tones or shouting. A negative experience with their name could lead to them associating their name with a bad experience.
We often end up having various names for our cats. They can get shortened or over time, as we learn their personalities more, nicknames will form. However, it is important during the learning period only their full name is used (for example, if the cat is called Baymax only call them this while learning, do not interchange between Baymax, Bay, Max, etc) this will help prevent confusion.
Each time your cat responds to their name reward them! This can be with either a tasty treat or their favourite toy.
Ideally, you will not want to let your cat outside until you are confident they will respond to their name. However, to ease any concerns you may also want to look into getting your cat a GPS Cat Tracker Collar.
Bringing a new cat home is an exciting time and choosing their name is often one of the hardest things to do. By choosing a travel-inspired pet name you will forever be combining your love of felines and adventure.
