15 Of The Unluckiest Cat Names


While cats can be considered both good and bad luck, Petplan Pet Insurance combed through half a million claims records and rounded up the names of hapless cats who visited the vet the most in 2014. If you’re hoping for a good fortune kitty, you may want to choose a name not on this list.

#1 – Maya

Cat’s with this name are just plain unlucky, getting the number one spot in term of accidents reported to Petplan.

#2 – Tucker

Interestingly enough, this name is also one of the most unlucky dog names, too. Maybe you shouldn’t name your child this either… just in case.

#3 – Thomas

Even though it’s a nice, old-fashioned name, apparently the bearers of this name get into trouble a lot.
