I am getting the impression from reading here that it's okay to call cats by a nickname (or many in some cases.) Boy do I feel a lot better!! My husband was worried that Ed would be confused by all the names I call him. I don't think he knows the difference -- if he did he would probably smother me in my sleep! I love reading the nicknames every one has for their babies. What a riot!

Our kittens name is Cooper....... we call her:

* Coupe (short for Cooper)
* Mamma (cause she's Mamma's kitty!)
* &%#*@ (When she's done something wrong!)

She answers to anything

(it also helps if you shake the can of treats when you call her!!!)

this is sort of embarrasing, but Ed has a first name, middle name and like four last names as well as his nicknames...

Edward Zephaniah Snigglestein (Ed's biological mother's imaginary biological last name) or Pinkerton (Ed's biological father's imaginary last name) or Hutchinson (my last name) or Randleman (my husband's last name).

It's a little weird I admit and I'm the only one int he house who can remember them all. Don'teven get me started on nicknames it could take a while...

Socks gets called her nicknames more than she gets called Socks. I think she thinks the name Socks is reserved only for when she's in trouble.

'Kie - Short for Sockie

My mom calls her Babe, and my brother calls her "Go Away." :p

Opie has been tagged with: Opes, Opieman and Opemeister.

Rowdy gets called: Her Royal Rowdiness, Ornery, Fat Sides and You Little $#!+.

Ike is also known as: Doofus, Goon and $#!+head.

Since Ike is the only one, who comes when called, I guess that it doesn't matter WHAT we call them!

Jenn - too funny!
...and my brother calls her "Go Away."

When we first named Lazlo, it was Carl Lazlo Esquire (yes, our cat is a lawyer). We brought in Shelly, who was named Sheldon Kornpet, DDS (Yup. A Dentist). But in the movie In-Laws, Shelly's pal is Vince Ricardo, so we kind of wanted Lazlo to be Vince, and he did seem to have two different personalities, depending upon the time of day. So we rechristend Lazlo "Carl Lazlo Vincent Ricardo," thinking we'd call him Vince or Lazlo. But Lazlo was the only one that stuck.

The both have LOTS of nicknames. Like Lizza, they'll answer to any of them with treats! But they know "Lazlo" or "Laz" and "Shelly" or "Sheldon." Anything else we call them - I think it gets their attention just because of the tone of voice we use (or that can of treats!)

We sing the "name" song with Shelly all the time:'

"Shelly-belly-fo-felly-fa-fee-fi-fo-felly - Shelly!"

He's our Shelly-belly! :tounge2: (And the funny thing is he is so far away from fat - he's a tall skinny kitty! Like the basket-ball player of cats! )

Oh, boy...nicknames. I don't think Ivo knows her "real" name.

She is called:
Shoogie bear (my favorite)
Big bear
Love bug
Meepers (because she trills and meeps when she's happy)
Kitty butt (when she stretches and sticks her butt in the air)
Baby girl
Little girl

My favorite cat nickname is the nickname my Dad has for his cat Pumpkin:

Furry rat face stinky kitty butt.

The funny thing is, Pumpkin actually recognizes that name!

Poor Ike, Cindy! My husband calls both the cats Doofus, and I get so insulted. Consider their definite dignity! Of course he calls the dog Doofus also, and I don't like that either! He loves them all, and just calls them that because I get indignant.

Beethoven, the dog, was named before I got him, and even though Beethoven is my favorite composer (with the possible exception of Verdi), it's too long a call name. Mostly, I call him Pup Pup and honey. The cats, Blueberry and Precious are Beebies, Mommy's babies, Booberry, honey, Preciouslamb, lambkins love, Keekababies....oh, gosh, aren't we silly? It's a good thing they're smarter than we are! They would never make up silly names the way we do.

My Siamese are loving and obedient, but the notorious, deceased Checkers undoubtedly called me "Hey, jerk!" She really disliked me, but definitely loved my kids and my food.

The worst of all of this is that I can remember my mother calling cats and dogs "honey", and thinking that was just a bit much! And carrying on conversations with them? Oh, please!! As I was saying to Precious a few days ago.....

Trent's nicknames have evolved over the 3 years he's been here. He started as Baby, which evolved to Bubba. He's still Bubba a lot. Some where I started calling him Boo (he's all black), and then Boo Bear. He's also Honey Bear, My Special Little Guy (from The Simpsons), Snuggle Bear. Almost forgot, he's also Bright Eyes from when he was sick, but every time I found him in his hiding spot his eyes would get big and bright, so I would see him and say "There's my Bright Eyes."

Ophelia's have pretty much stayed the same. She's Little Girl, Pretty Girl, Little One, Sweetie, Precious (but don't call her Princess, she gets mad!), or just Pretty.

Gee, Jeanie, I grew up thinking it was strange NOT to have conversations with your pets....
post #17 of 32
Jeanie, don't worry about Ike's dignity - he has none. Besides, he recognizes tone of voice, more than the words. He knows that he's a big, ol' loveable goof.
post #18 of 32
ok I have to get in on this one.
Roo = Rufus, Precious, my fatty, Roo-babies is probably the most popular. and of course "you little $***-head!" when he's bad.
