25 Meowtastic Names Cat Parents Gave Their Little Furballs That Never Fail to Amuse Vets
Giving your loved ones hilariously cute pet names is your absolute birthright and this is often demonstrated when we name our pets.
But sometimes pets can have names that raise eyebrows—if not their own, then their veterinarians'. Twitter users cracked up over some particularly creative and hilarious names cat parents have given their little furballs after author Brittany Means shared how her feline's name always sparks joy when introducing her to new people.
A lot of people with animal companions related to Means' anecdote and used the thread to share similar tidbits about their cats' names. Especially when it's time to go to the vet.
Here are 25 times the vets were left amused by the names of cats. Introducing you to:
1. Mister Daisy
This is Daisy. When we got him we thought he was a girl. When the vet asked "Well, what are you going to change his name to?" I told him "I'm not, just put a "Mister" in front of it." pic.twitter.com/sUW5mKFxcV— DAISYMAY722 💙 (@LouLouNCowboy) April 14, 2022
2. Baby Jeff
One of my greatest joys in life is when Jeff calls the vet to make an appointment and they ask for his name, and he says, Jeff. Then, they ask for our cat's name, and I watch him gather his strength before he tells them, Baby Jeff.— Brittany Means (@BrittanyMeansIt) April 13, 2022
3. Lord Tubbington
my cats name is Lord Tubbington, and every vet and nurse giggles before saying his name. he’s 18 this year 🥰 pic.twitter.com/ZUes7vGJiU— roxxsetti spaghetti (@roxxyroxxyroxxy) April 14, 2022

5. Montresor and spaghetti
Montresor (Monty) and Spaghetti. Monty found Spaghetti living under our deck and they've been best friends ever since. She went missing for 75 days last year and he was distraught. Took a few days for him to believe it was really her when we found her. pic.twitter.com/pLSwiqn1Nw— You look like I need a drink (@grumpy_bisexual) April 14, 2022
6. Mrs. Thoman Houdini Pickles

7. Mr. White Chocolate Mousse Mouse Mocha Munchkin Moon
He passed away in 2017 at the age of 16, but I still get teary eyed when I tell people about White Chocolate Mousse Mouse Mocha Munchkin Moon Pie. Mr Munch, as we called him, was just the sweetest ever…and now I’m crying 😿 pic.twitter.com/NkQYzrizHS— D (@d_poppyseeds) April 14, 2022
8. Elvis Presley a.k.a The King
This is Elvis Presley. Whenever we go to the vet the staff at the front desk just writes “The King” on his paperwork and predictably says “Elvis has left the building” as we leave. pic.twitter.com/Oro6ciUgMy— charters harrison (@chartersny) April 14, 2022
9. Aye Aye! Captain puff puff
Ha! I do enjoy my hearing my husband making vet appointments for Captain Puff Puff. But what else could we call him? 😸 pic.twitter.com/cn8JI2rnoX— honofhons 💫 (@patriciaoak) April 14, 2022

12. Lady David
This is Lady David, our daughter named her David when we thought it was a male cat - when we found out it was a girl, daughter refused to change the name, so we titled her. She is quite the Lady. pic.twitter.com/PiTtVUTR2F— katefdavy (@MeKatedavy) April 14, 2022
13. Her Royal Highness
Growing up we had a cat named Her Royal Highness.— Ash Okhotnik (@AOkhotnik) April 14, 2022
We called her HRH.
The vet insisted on listing her full title on the reminder cards.
"This is a reminder that Her Roysl Highness is due for her shots this month."

My cat's name is Chicken. I made her first appointment with the vet online, so when he walked in he thought I was the wrong client as he was expecting a chicken and not a cat. pic.twitter.com/SRH7tdDxOk— NutMeg*an* (@awkward_19) April 14, 2022
16. The Terrorist
I adopted a *very* curious kitten when my sons were all home from college for the summer. Despite my best efforts but for obvious reasons, my kiddos called him The Terrorist and it stuck. Try calling the vet and giving that name for an appointment. 🤦🏼♀️ pic.twitter.com/KmhmWyXd9m— Lucy Lloyd (@LucyALloyd) April 14, 2022
17. Outlaw Josey Wales
This is The Outlaw Josey Wales. Vets always enjoy the name. pic.twitter.com/tdB8W9GNrh— Clare (@ClareandPresent) April 14, 2022

This is our cat Bumblebee. Full name Comrade Bumblebee.He's a big chonky boi and an excellent cat, sweet, soft and super cuddly and affectionate. And yet sometimes I think I love him even more because of his name! pic.twitter.com/3toJBc2N0g— Suzanne Wlaschin (@SuzanneWlaschin) April 14, 2022
19. Azrael Simmons
When I take my cat in they have my last name as my cat's last name so I make an appointment for Azrael Simmons pic.twitter.com/DwvfkymW0t— EldritchKvn, M3gan's Bestie (@KvnRaptor) April 14, 2022
20. Miss Liza Minelli and Miss Judy Garland
Liza Minnelli and Judy Garland. The younger vet techs took it in stride not knowing there were human equivalents. The older ones struggled. Liza Bennett? Liza Minnelli Bennett? I told them it was Miss. Miss Minnelli, Miss Garland. pic.twitter.com/nHBKy07xpr— Nancy Bennett (@Nancy178) April 14, 2022
21. The Goblin of the Bibimbap Deville

23. King Paul Falafel
King Paul Falafel. He was a stray who visited every day for a couple of months during the first lockdown. He would only eat salmon Felix and Dreamies....wouldn't touch the supermarket's own brand. pic.twitter.com/CbIu0HvEv5— Helen Hall (@JellyheadNelly) April 14, 2022

25. Frank Sinatra
This is Frank Sinatra. He’s a big deal. Once the vet called over the PA, “Frank Sinatra is ready for discharge”, a gentleman next to me said, “Damn, this must be a great vet!” pic.twitter.com/mPVnpP8tFd— RJG (@notgross) April 14, 2022
