World Building: Pet Store Names

Are you writing a cozy mystery in which your character needs to stop in a pet store? Or perhaps your modern fiction needs a few more stores to fill out a fictional town. No matter what genre you’re writing, it’s important to have a thorough and believable setting. One of my favorite parts of this process is coming up with various store names. Today’s installment is all about pet store names!

While there’s no doubt some of these have already been used somewhere before, I always find it fun to see what I can come up with!

  • The Pet Palace
  • Fish Tales
  • Furry Friends
  • In the Dog House
  • Kitty Corner
  • Off the Hook (fish supplies, obviously!)
  • Pet Pantry
  • Kitty Keep
  • Cat Cache
  • Cat’s Meow
  • Friendly Tails
  • Paws for Pets
  • Pampered Pets
  • By Best Friend’s Place
  • The Cat’s in the Bag

What would you add to the list? I’d love to know!
