About Us

Hi, we’re Gary and Sian, and we love cats!

Some years ago we were coming home from a walk when a tiny Tabby kitten came dashing out of the bushes. She was infested with fleas and quite obviously a stray, and we decided then and there to adopt her.

For a while we struggled for a name, but she was such an adventurous little thing – always climbing up on things and getting herself into bother, that we decided on Indiana, after the action hero, Indiana Jones.

Indiana, is 10 years old now, and shares our home with our other two cats and two dogs.

There’s Abbey, a tiny tabby, who’s very prim and proper, and expects to be treated like royalty, and then there’s DC, a white tom cat, who is also known as Doodle. If there were a competition for the world’s naughtiest cat, DC would win hands down!

What does all of this have to do with Cat Names HQ we hear you ask? Not a lot, except that as pet owners ourselves we understand how frustrating it can be to come up with the perfect name for a new cat or kitten.

We hope that this site can help in some small way, so we’ll keep updating, upgrading, expanding, and (we hope!) improving our lists.

If you have any suggestions, ideas, corrections, compliments or criticisms, or even if you just want to say “Hi”, give us a shout using the contact us form.

Wishing you years of love, joy, fun and companionship with your new cat.
