113 Gender-Neutral Cat Names

There's nothing wrong with names that identify your cat as a boy or a girl. But a unisex or gender- neutral name is unique. A gender-neutral cat name is like a badge of honor for your cat. It indicates that they have a personality so unique it doesn't have to fit into a gender box!

Here's a personal example of why gender-neutral cat names work so well: I had a kitten I was sure was a boy. I named him Sid, as in Sid Vicious, because he was white with a black stripe down the center of his head that looked like a punk haircut. But Sid got pregnant! Oops. She became a Sidney, and it all worked out for the best. I was so attached to her as a Sid that changing names from something more gender-identifying would have been hard.

Here's a list of 113 gender-neutral cat names to inspire your Sid or Sidney, whichever they happen to be.
