“But, but...what if we don’t want to be called ‘Bella’?”
According to VPI Pet Insurance’s yearly compilation of the most popular names 500,000 of their customers gave their pets, Bella did a three-peat and was the preferred moniker for dogs and cats last year.
Named after the female lead in the Twilight hit movies and best-selling novels (in case you’ve been living under a rock), Bella topped both cat and dog charts for the third year in a row — in fact, much of 2014’s choices remain relatively unchanged over the top pics of 2013.
Here are the most popular names of 2014 for dogs and cats:

Maybe next year Bella’s reign will end (honestly, the movies weren’t that good), but if you’re a huge fan of the vampire-human romance series, take a look at our list of Twilight characters with names that are perfect for a canine or feline.

Project Big Fix
We are committed to spay/neutering 1500 cats in 2015.
In 2014 we started this program in November and spayed/neutered 142 cats preventing hundreds of innocent homeless babies being born this spring. With your help, we can help more cats.
after 10 years, this figure is in the hundreds of thousands.
Cats entering traditional animal control facilities have only 3 possible outcomes,
being adopted, reunited with an owner or killed. Feral cats are not socialized to humans and have no owners to claim them, for them, 99.9% of the time, the only outcome for them is death.
These animals are the most significant populations facing animal control facilities today.
The act of spaying/neutering will have a great impact on improving individual cats lives. No more having 2-3 litters of babies per year! In a female cats
productive years, she could have up to 100 kittens!!
Please help us make a huge difference in their lives, Please help us be part of the solution and not the problem. Please make a donation today to help us help them.
Be a part of improving the future for these cats :)
and pick Blind Cat Rescue as your charity. They will make a donation
from their foundation to the cats! It costs you nothing extra :)
