Once you have chosen the perfect moniker, it is time to put it to use. Keep in mind that cats are more likely to respond to tone, so try to keep your tone consistent and calm when using his name. You may consider a British accent if your cat is a British breed, but this is for your own amusement and may have no bearing on your cat’s response.
