Does your cat have many names/nicknames??

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I'm just curious to see who gives their pets 'pet names'
I do!

Cello and Kismet are their names to the public, but they have many names at home.

Cello does know his name and responds to it
But he goes as.....

Sgt. Meowenstein
The commander
Big Man

Kismet knows kismet but also responds to muffin, or anything starting with kis

Sweet Baby Girl

Am I the only crazy person that does this???

No way, you are NOT the only one that does this.

Pixel, naturally, is called "Pixie" pretty regularly, and since she is so sneaky she is also called "Tricksy" and "Pixie Tricksykins." DH started calling her "Pixie Sue" and then depending on what she is doing "Purrby Sue" or "Purbzoo" and so much other stuff. LOL. She is also regularly called "Stinker" and "Stripey" and "Stripes" and "Stripezoo." I also call her "Princess" and "Miss Pretty."

Bamf is almost never called "Bamf." Sometimes "Bamfie" or "Bamfie-boo." One of his first nicknames was "Chubby" because his belly got cute and round very quickly (while is sister was quite skinny). Then I began calling him "Mr. Chubs." DH calls him "Chubby Bubby" and "Bubs" also. DH started calling him "Chubby Boo" and then I began just calling him "Boo" and now DH calls him "Boo Boo." We also call him pretty much any word followed by boo. For instance, "Stinkerboo," "Fatboo," "Chubbyboo," "Dumboo," Sillyboo." You get the idea. He is also sometimes called "pooper".

We also make a Lord of the Rings joke with them and call them Slinker (Pixel the sneaky) and Stinker (Bamf and his smelly poop)!

So yeah, my cats have more nicknames than yours and they haven't even lived with us for a year!!!

Shareena--You Dratted Cat, KeeKeeKee (KittyKittyKitty), Goofus, The Goddess, Baby Cat

Miss Patchwillow--Pretty Kitty, Fat Cat, Doofus, Snuggle Bug, Baby Cat

Goldy--Goldycat, Mama Cat, Pretty Girl, Baby Cat, Golden Girl

Iris (Goldy's kitten)--Flower Girl, Flower Child, Purry Kitty, Baby Cat, Iris Flower, Brat

Cali (Goldy's kitten)--Calicat, Pretty Kitty, Trouble, Baby Cat

Lion (Goldy's kitten, gone to his furever home )--Big Boy, Big Red, Tiger, Cuddles, Baby Cat

You'll notice some of the nicknames are interchangeable. They are also collectively known as Kitty Katzes, Silly Katzes, and a few other less polite names. Iris is the only one who answers to her official name. The others respond (or not) to the tone of my voice.

I've been calling my Beau, "Beau-Beau" more often. I realized after I named him that his name sounds a lot like "No!" when I have to say it to him, and I didn't want him confusing that so I guess "Beau-Beau" is okay. My hubby likes to call him Boo-Boo like Yogi Bear. In Chinese, "Bo Bo" is a common cute name so half the time I call him that with the Chinese accent.

Nero is also called Little Boy, Sweet Boy, Sweetness, Mommy's Sweetness.

We call Katina "Baby Cat"

No nicknames for Hoshi yet.

My parents' cats have a million nicknames, but the most common for the three there:

Chassis's is Frissle
Caliper's is Schnark
Tailpipe's is Snick-snack.
