Cat Puns That Are Just Plain Punny!

Cat-tastic (Fantastic)
Kind of like fantastic, only better because it includes a cat! Use it when you are talking about how awesome something is.
Usage example: This post is cat-tastic!

Hiss-self (Himself)
Goes with the word himself and can be used to talk about any male.
Usage example: Did you see Bill being a jerk last night, he should really get over hiss-self.

Cat-titude (Attitude)
A great way to describe a personality! If you know someone who has the attitude of a cat – you know they only want attention when they want attention or hiss at you when you rub their belly, they may have “cat-titude”.
Usage example: Boy does Cheryl have so much cat-titude today.

Clawsome (Awesome)
The perfect cat pun to describe something that is amazingly awesome! If you are tired of using the word awesome, then use this one as an alternate.
Usage example: That movie was so clawsome!

Another option for the pun clawsome is pawsome which can work the same way and can be used as a dog pun or cat pun!

Procatstinate (Procrastinate)
Those moments you spend playing with you cat instead of doing chores or work is what procatstinate is. Can also be used as a verb with the term procatstinating!
Usage example: If I did not procrastinate so much I could get much more done every day.

Furry (Very)
A great alternative to the word very in a variety of ways.
Usage example: That ice cream cone was furry good!

Hiss (Kiss)
Makes a great play on words for the kiss.
Usage example: I cannot wait to get my very first hiss.

Pawlease (Please)
When you need an exaggerated alternative to please – this hits the mark perfectly.
Usage example: Oh, girl can you pawlease stop acting like that.

Purrsonality (Personality)
Typically used to describe someone, especially if they have attributes that are cat like – like being spunky!
Usage example: That actress has so much purrsonality.

When things just go wrong as they sometimes will and it is a major event, you may consider it a catastrophe.
Usage example: That car accident on the way to the vet was a catastrophe.

Furtunate (Fortunate)
When one is lucky or has lots of good things happen to them they may be considered furtunate.
Usage example: That cat was so furtunate to have found such an amazing family to adopt them.

Cathletic (Athletic)
Finding one to be truly skilled in sports or to have cat like reflexes.
Usage example: The way that cat climbed that tree was so cathletic.

Self-Pawtrait (Self-Portrait)
When one draws or paints a likeness of themselves.
Usage example: That self-pawtrait he did is amazing.

Pawsitive (Positive)
One is sure of something and needs a way to describe it.

Clawfile (Awful)
Describing something that is really bad.
