Nicknames You Give Your Cats

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Growing up, my Dad always called our cat, Teufel, "Dragon Breath."

We have nicknames for our current cats, too! Minka is almost always "Minka Spinka Pinka Poo." She frequently hurts my husband's feelings by rejecting his love and seeking mine instead, so he calls her (lovingly), "Little B***h." I know it sounds mean but he says it like his feelings are hurt, not like he's mad!

My niece calls Taxi, "Taxi Waxi Bo-Baxi" while her brother can't say Leo and instead calls him "Wee-Woe" (which has totally stuck).

When I was living at my parent's house with Minka and Leo, my Dad would frequently ask if we were having "Minka Stew" for dinner. So sometimes I call her Minka Stew.

I also have a song that I sing to Minka. It's terrible.
Hey little Minka
Said the little Minka
Minka, Minka, Minka, MINKA

She mews when I'm finished.

Aw, the song is so cute.

Raven: Moody boy; Pimpwalker; Ravie-baby; Knock it off!; Way-bone-eeeee; Wu-vu.

Shadow: Shudsy; Shudsy-Pudgy; Futsy ('cause he's a bit plump); Shy boy; Shadsy; Shoo-poo.

That is a short list of the nicknames I have for them.

I also sing to the cats, and talk to them in a high voice. Anyone who doesn't have cats and visits my house thinks I'm absolutely insane.

Kittybutt.. !

I just have a million variations of the same thing.

Billy: Silly/Sills/Siller Biller/Silly Billy, Will/Wills/Willer/Biller- you get the picture! And most of the time they have "mister" attached to the front.

Pumpkin: Punky/Punk/Punker/Punkles, Wunkey/Wunk/Wunker/Wunkles, Winky, Stinky.

Kitten: Bo Bitty, Little Kitty, Squeaker, Pooper, Fluff.

I call Shadow by her mood happy/stingy/etc., but I just realized I don't have any for Johnboy! Well, considering the above, he should probably feel lucky!

Wow, this brings back memories. When I brought home my oldest cat, who died last year, I was over the moon because I hadn't had a pet in decades. So among other things, I called him almost every kind of "pie" there was, but particularly "my banana cream pie." And I would sing "What's New Pussycat" to him all the time. I would also sing him a nonsense version of "Love is a Many Splendored Thing," substituting his name for "Love".

For my two remaining cats, I do all kinds of variations on their names and sometimes just call them whatever nonsense word pops into my head. I actually found out that one of the variations on Sebastian's name I unwittingly used turned out to be a term for someone giving himself a bj or something!

Malcolm's song when he first arrived was "Consider Yourself at Home" from "Oliver." Sebastian doesn't have a song because he was so skittish the first year and a half so I'm always on the lookout for a song for him.

Hee, I feel a little nutty.

I mostly just call them altered versions of their given names. Such as Church is called Churchie or sometimes Churchill and Sneakers is called Sneaky and Sneaks and sometimes Sneaker-deakers. Roxy is usually just called Roxy or sometimes Rorschach because that is part of her full name. I sometimes call her Pretty or Prettykitty.

I have more nicknames for some of my foster kittens like Mister Grey I call cuddlekitty because he is a cuddler and Spot I call Fatty and Fattycat and Chub-chub and Fatty Mc Fatkins LOL... Spot is a huge kitten, he weighed 8 pounds at 5 months and now he is about 12 pounds at 7-8 months old. He is a large cat in general but also chubby. Harlequin is usually called Harley.

I always love kitty nick-name threads, it's so fun to read everything we call our cats!

Flowerbelle is pretty much the only static name. She was "the little white kitty" from day one, before we named her, and it has stuck. So she's pretty much always "Whitey," or "little whitey," or, because she LOVES lying in the bathroom, or on top of the toilet when we shower, "toilet kitty," or "little whitey toilet." She doesn't answer to any of them because she's deaf. But she can hear certain frequencies, and a "CH-CH-CH" kind of noise made by sucking air between your cheek and teeth she can hear - so that's what she thinks her name is.

Shelly these days is either Smelly or Shelly Belly. I don't know why - he's thin.

Lazlo is back to Laz the Spaz. Or "#1 son" (our first kitty adopted).

Tuxedo hasn't ever had a nick name. Tuxie. Too proud.

Spooky is a million things. Pookie, Spookster, Pookster, Spoopy, Spoop-a-lopoulous, Spook-a-loopy, Sploopy, Sploppy, Spooky-the-plopster &etc.

Billy is Billy-so-silly or just Silly. or BeSilly. or Billster. He answers to all of them.

Ming Loy is so many things. Ming-doo-doo, Ming-doody, Ming-a-ling, little tubba wubba, Moojah (like from Mujahadein), Ming Doodle, Ming Doodle Bug, and so many I can't remember!

The funniest story, though, is Ming Loy's. She's handicapped, but she could climb, so a kiddie pen didn't keep her in. We had to put her in her own room at first. She'd sleep under a chest we had in there, so when we'd open the door, we'd call "Where's Ming Loy?" ...and she's scrinch her way out from under the chest and come running. When we first let her loose, we'd call her, "Ming Loy!" - and no response. Finally we called, "Where's Ming Loy?" and she came running! It took a couple of weeks to transition her from what she THOUGHT her name was "Where's Ming Loy?" to just plain old "Ming Loy."
