The Naming of Cats; In The Naming of Cats, Can an Animal Communicator Help You Understand Your Cat's Real Name?

In the Sci-Fi film classic Logan's Run,  two-time Academy Award-winning actor Peter Ustinov, surrounded by several hundred cats, explains the naming of cats and why they all have three names in this folklore poem...

The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter,
It isn't just one of your holiday games;
You may think at first I'm as mad as a hatter
When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES.

First of all, there's the name that the family use daily,
Such as Peter, Augustus, Alonzo or James,
Such as Victor or Jonathan, George or Bill Bailey -
All of them sensible everyday names.

There are fancier names if you think they sound sweeter,
Some for the gentlemen, some for the dames:
Such as Plato, Admetus, Electra, Demeter -
But all of them sensible everyday names.

But I tell you, a cat needs a name that's particular,
A name that's peculiar, and more dignified,
Else how can he keep his tail perpendicular,
Or spread out his whiskers, or cherish his pride?

Of names of this kind, I can give you a quorum,
Such as Munkustrap, Quaxo, or Coricopat,
Such as Bombalurina, or else Jellylorum -
Names that never belong to more than one cat.

But above and beyond there's still one name left over,
And that is the name that you never will guess;
The name that no human research can discover -
But THE CAT HIMSELF KNOWS, and will never confess

Now to go beyond this legendary poem, as animal communicators we can dig deeper into cat (and pet) names. Cats within their own circles have names for each other. Animals communicate telepathically, so there are names that they share and recognize each other by within their own communication means. Sometimes these names can correspond very closely (if not exactly) to the pet family names we have chosen. Perhaps some of those kitties have been able to communicate their preferred name to their pet parents through the deep connection they share.  More and more people are able to communicate with their cats than they realize, as it's an ability we are all born with.

In one recent communication session with a client  we were doing a new family check in before an adoption of a new kitten into a multi-cat home.  The family's kitties were all accepting the new arrival with ease, making their adjustments and setting some minor negotiations, and all was going according to plan. The pet parent wanted to talk with the new kitten and her birth mom to make an easier transition for the kitten and hopefully reduce any separation anxiety. During the conversation we discovered the birth mom's name for the kitten. The pet parent was so overwhelming in love with the name she decided to honor the mother and keep the original for the kitten's real name. Everyone was so happy, the session was surrounded in so much love. When the kitten met his new family he had a great start to a new life.

It's been many months since the kitten found his new home and I'm happy to report he is doing very well with his new family. Family introductions to your new pet are just one of the many ways that animal communication can benefit your pet family.

A similar situation occurred for an Alaskan Malamute puppy going to a new family 600 miles away from his momma. While talking with his new family we had a brief talk with his birth mom and a whole new name for this gorgeous new sled pup came up. The kids and the whole family were so excited to meet this high energy puppy, who seemed to know every corner of his new house, and particularly seemed to know the established dog, a Chihuahua. While they may have been about the same size when they first met, the sled pup must be at least ten times his best friends size by now!
