Patch's Poll: Most Popular Cat Names Of 2011

Take our poll and post a photo of your cat!

According to Veterinary Pet Insurance Co (VPI) and Petfinder.com, a roundup of the most popular pet names in 2011 saw a new top name for cats, although the trend to use traditionally human names continues.

The top 5 cat names in 2011 were Bella (new winner), Max, Chloe, Oliver and Lucy. Rounding out the top 10 were Shadow, Smokey, Tiger, Charlie and Tigger.

So while human names rule the roost for dogs, there are still lots of traditional "animal" names in the cat world.

Take our poll, add your cat's name in the comments if it did not make the list, and most importantly, post a photo of that kitty!

Isn't that strange? They are obviously from the same family breed so it must be something in their genes. Is Kiki also super affectionate. Angel is, with the other cats as well as us - but only when it suits her.

She IS affectionate, especially with our kids. Funny how they are so similar, yet from different moms.

Our new fur angel's name is Muffin.

We have a black male cat called Ninja Joe, Joey for short, and he's tough! And a Balinese female named Misty. When she was little, and her fur was backlighted, it looked like she was coming through the mist.

My cat has a name, but I just call her "cat". Sje ignores me no matter what I call her so I suppose it doesn't really matter...
