My little boy has such a heart for animals, particularly cats. My husband and I took him to a pet store where John stood for well over an hour, talking to the kittens and clapping his hands with excitement.

While a new kitten isn't in our future (I'm allergic to cats, and we're not allowed pets where we live), maybe one is in yours. Or, maybe you adopted a kitten/cat over the holidays. If so, Best 1X has released the most popular kitten names for 2017, so maybe you can draw inspiration from one of these!
