The 15 Scariest Pet Names — Ever

Years ago, we had a cat named Jason. He was a grumpy orange tabby who liked to jump out of doorways and claw at us. It resulted in quite a few scratches, but over time, Jason calmed down and went from violent to just crotchety. While we probably should have named him Freddy as in Kruger, Jason suited him just fine.

It turns out many pet owners like to give their cats and dogs a scary moniker. Veterinary Pet Insurance recently surveyed their clientele and came up with the 15 most scary pet names, and we’ve come up with some dead ringers for the horrifying but beloved characters, with quotes, of course!

Read on…and check out these heart-throbbing, spine-tingling cats and dogs!
