Cats are out of this world so space names for cats are just appropriate! OK, I might be a little exaggerating but we all know that cats are not “normal”.

Did you know that there is a cat statue at International Space University in Strasbourg, France? This statue is a recognition to Félicette that is the first cat in space and the only one to have ever survived a sojourn into space. The story of Félicette is a sad one actually and that’s why Félicette is in our list of space names for cats as +1. If cats were sent that far, they definitely deserve some space related cat names.

There are so many names to choose from when the subject is space but I categorized the names so if you have a specific theme in your mind, it will be easier to choose from. The list of space names for cats is categorized as follows:

  • Galaxy Names For Cats
  • Moon (Satellite), Constellation and Planet Names For Cats & Space Terms
  • Notable Cosmonauts & Astronauts

Since there are a lot of space themed cat names here, noting the names you like as you go is recommended. This will allow you to compare your favorite space names for cats and choose the one you like most. If more than one person will choose the name, keep your separate notes and see if there is any common name on your lists so everybody will be happy 😻

If you like such names you can also check our list of aviation names for cats.
