If an adorable new feline joined your household in 2013, you can now see if its name is a popular one.
The United States' largest pet insurance company, Veterinary Pet Insurance Co. (VPI), sorted through its database of 500,000 pets and determined the top cat names of 2013. For the second year in a row, "Bella" and "Max" topped the charts.
Curtis Steinhoff, director of Corporate Communications at VPI, acknowledged that the most favored kitten names were also among the most popular baby names. “This trend illustrates the close bond that pet owners have with their pets. Many people view their dog and cat as family members and they are naming them to reflect that human-animal bond," he said in a press release.
