Lots of cat owners look to the world of sports to name their cats.

This can be a great option if your team is currently on top of the world and winning, but be warned: Players will switch teams throughout their career or might experience dramatic falls from grace, so you could end up coming to regret the day you named your feline after Serena Williams, Mia Hamm, or Abby Wambach.

When it comes to sports-influenced names, it’s safest to pick a retired superstar whose legacy is already established.
