What’s in a Name?

What’s in a Name?

After over 5 months of providing our free poisons advice service to pet owners we thought we would share with you the cats who seem to find themselves in need of help the most.

Burmese and Ragdolls are the pure breed cats we receive the most calls about. However, the majority of our calls concerning cats were for the domestic cat.

But what about names? Cats with the following names seemed to find themselves in trouble the most:

1. Bella
2. Charlie
3. Luna
4. Simba
5. Oscar
6. Missy
7. Tiger
8. Max
9. Misty
10. Coco

Of course these names likely reflect their popularity among pet owners, but it does make us wonder whether if you have a Bella or a Charlie, or a Luna and a Simba, maybe just be extra careful to keep poisons out of reach.

If your cat has ingested anything they should not have, please call the Animal Poisons Centre on 1300 869 738 (Australia) or 0800 869 738 (New Zealand) for advice. Our service is free for all pet owners.
