However you perceive the meaning of cool, it's a definitive fact that ALL cats are cool. Not only do they possess such charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent to put the whole cast of Ru Paul to shame, but us mere humans often strive to be like them too.
Models want to walk like them (cat walk). Make up artists want their eyes to look like theirs (cat eyes). And one final fact, the French even named caterpillars after them, believing they looked like hairy cats - "chatepelose". (Okay, so maybe that last one isn't so cool, but it is interesting.) On top of these, we also describe our cool friends as being "cool cats", and back in the day "hepcat" essentially meant a hipster.
Therefore if you're welcoming a kitty into your home, as well as making sure cat food is in abundance (!), it's essential to equip them with a cool cat name to match their personality and aesthetic.
