According to an article by Time, “Studies Show Cat People Are Smarter Than Dog People” researcher Denise Guastello, an associate professor of psychology at Carroll University in Waukesha, Wisconsin presented findings at the annual Association for Psychological Science meeting that pointed to the differences in personalities of cat owners vs. dog owners as their reasoning behind the why cat owners tend to read more than dog owners.
Dog owners usually need to exercise their dog out of the house. So, even if the owner is an introvert, the dog will help push them to leave the house. Cats, however, are the ideal companion if your idea of a good day is settling down with a book and shutting out the rest of the world.
This was a long way of explaining why people often search the internet for inspiration to name their cats and kittens after famous authors or literary works. In my own research, I discovered people search Google for literary cat names daily.
And, that is why we’re here. There are centuries of authors’ names at our fingertips and you’ll likely grow exhausted if you think too hard or too long in an attempt to be thorough with the naming of your little fe-lion.
To assist the weeding process, we at KittyMews.com have decided to create a simple tool that will help you decide by your cat’s most distinguished personality trait. After selecting your cat’s trait, a shortened list of famous authors’ names will match those traits.
Please keep in mind that this list is evolving, not a finished piece. Your feedback can make this a much more comprehensive list.
