When you are mad at your cats, do you ever...

post #1 of 22

...call them by your child(ren)'s name(s)?

I've found myself calling Ginger "Crystal" on more than one occasion, LOL!!! Fortunately I have no sons, so Ferris will always be Ferris, but I love my kitties like they are my children.

Every time I've caught myself calling Ginger by my daughter's name, I crack myself up, then I can't even be mad anymore, LOL!!!

Do you ever do things like that?

I don't have kids but I always call Severino, Antonio, which is my nephews name and he's adorable and a little devil just like Severino!!

LOL! I havent gotten mad at Ceci yet but when DS does something wrong I have often caught myself yelling "Ceci!" or "laika!" (dog) Its hilarious because DS will stop what hes doing and crawl under the bed to see if he can find Ceci

I don't have kids (or a significant other) but when they're in trouble I always call them by their full name, I am the queen of nicknames so when the full name come out- watch it!!

I don't have kids either, but the confusion still comes up. Because Oz is so very rarely bad, and Spike is so very rarely good (Spike and 8-Bit in a room together would be a bad thing!), whenever Ozzie does misbehave I always shout out "Sp-OZ!!!" as I start to say one cat's name and end with the other's. God help me if I have children or more cats ... Can you imagine the litany of names I'll have to go through before I get the right name? "Sp-Oz-Jay-Han-Izz-HEY YOU!!!"

ok, I use their full names :"Lucky Boots Di(bigitalianlastnamehere)!!!!"
or "Louie Delmonte!!!!" that's not my last name, but the friend who passes away that we named Louie after.... poor Louie, he's like the illigitimate child with a different last name.

I don't have kids, but sometimes I mix up my kitties names. Abby doesn't notice too much, but Chynna sure does. If I accidentally call her "Abby" she sulks and ignores me the rest of the day

Shoot I do that even when I'm not mad at them! What's really bad is when you get mad at your son and you call him by the cats name!!

I was fussing at my youngest and I accidentally called him Simon and Max.
My son just said MOM I"M NOT A CAT! I have so many and I have a long list to go down!

No kids here but I do mix up the cats' names even when I'm not mad at them. With seven kitties it sometimes takes two or three attempts to get the correct name. I've always thought it's because I'm old and confused.

I don't have kids, so I just call Tiger...Tiger Woods when he's in trouble and Miagi..Miagi Son when he's in trouble.

I do that to Colin when he's aggervating me and i want him to stop- i get soo frusteated sometimes that i say "Fosters stop it" lol and mix him up with the doggie - I also mix fosters up with Colin and call him Colin when I'm getting on to him / Those boys both stay in trouble

I haven't done it in a while but I call Pippin Piddles after the poodle we had as a child growing up! Oh and I've also called him Toffee on a few occasions, Toffolux was the name of my cockateil that I left in the care of my boss when I left south africa!
