Battersea Dogs and Cats home have published a list of very original and often amusing list of pet names either chosen by owners or by themselves. We also have some Vetsure pets with very imaginative names indeed! Pictured is Senor Snuggles who is an Anatolian Shepherd Dog in need of a good home.
Other names worthy of a mention include: Mr Bongi Muggles, Pickwickywoowoo, Mister Fuzzy Mittens and Strawberry Surprise.
Rob Young, Operations Manager at Battersea says: “Unlike humans, animals don’t really know what they are called so you can be a bit bonkers when it comes to naming your four-legged friends – just remember you may need to shout it out in the garden or at the park!”
The charity, which take in around 9,000 dogs and cats a year, also get creative when it comes to naming their residents, with Señor Snuggles the Anatolian Shepherd and Cuddle Bear the cat. Mr Young adds: “Around half the dogs and cats we take in are strays so we constantly have to come up with names to give our new arrivals.”
“We have to be quite imaginative and names like Señor Snuggles and Cuddle Bear really help animals stand out from the crowd. We love the wacky names in our top 20 – they are truly original. You never know, they may inspire us when it comes to naming some of Battersea’s furry residents.”
