About Famous Cats and Their Names

Famous Cats Beginning With C

• Casper - took the bus

Casper was a sneaky one. He would disappear suddenly and without a trace, and would turn up just as unexpectedly. That’s why he was called Casper, after the ghost in the film of the same name. Three years later, his owner Susan found out that her cheeky little chappie had been traveling around the neighborhood on the bus! Each morning at 10, he took the “line 3” to the last stop and back. That was 11.1 miles (18 km). Eventually, the cat was known all around town and very popular with many passengers. His love of bus journeys was sadly put to an end by a taxi that ran him over...

• Cooper - the photographer


Cooper is a photographer! This American Shorthair takes his little digital camera with him once a week to take all kinds of photos. The camera is hung around his neck and takes photos automatically every two minutes, resulting in some very funny photos that are now available in a book.

• Choupette - Karl Lagerfeld’s cat

Choupette is a Birman owned by fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld. He has named a few fashion collections after her, like “Monster Choupette!” and “Choupette in Love”. She has even been on the front covers of famous fashion magazines like “Vogue”. Definitely a name for a fashion-conscious cat!

Record breakers beginning with C

• Creme Puff – the oldest cat in the world

Creme Puff was born in Texas (USA) in 1967 and finally closed her eyes for the last time 38 years (!) and three days later in 2005. Creme Puff was a normal house cat, and not a purebred. Her owner Jake Perry also owned Grandpa Rex Allen, who held the record for the oldest cat in the world before Creme Puff. Jake must be a very loving, caring “can opener” ;)

Life Savers Beginning With C

• Charley - licks save the day

In 2012, Diabetes sufferer Susan March-Armstrong was unconscious in the bathroom while her husband was asleep in bed. Little black and white tomcat Charley noticed straight away that something wasn’t right with his master, but couldn’t do anything himself. But he knew just who could help: Susan’s husband. Charley jumped up on the bed and licked his face until he woke up, then insisted that he come into the bathroom. He was able to save Susan. Thanks to the hero on four paws!

• Chase No Face - the therapy cat without a face

Chase lost her nose and the fur on her face in an accident. But she didn’t lose her lust for life! Although her wounds have since healed and she’s no longer in pain, she looks different than other cats. And she has a new job that spreads a lot of joy: she is a therapy cat for people that have also had accidents and don’t look like they used to.

Cartoon cats beginning with C

• Chococat - from Hello Kitty

Sweet little Chococat is a pitch black cat with big eyes. He gets his name from his chocolate colored nose.
