I know its not very nice but sadly that is the name she responds to when she is called
My friend's cat had his tail run over by a car and the same thing happened (being amputated)! It's cute though and at least she doesn't seem to mind.

She does not mind at all. They didn't take her entire tail just about half of it, but it was REALLY long so not it looks about normal for a kitty her size. Hated that my parents called her stumpy, but now she thinks that is her name We had not had her very long when it happened so she never got a chance to learn her real name! It just sounds so mean!

This is bad, but I use the same nicknames for both cats. I'm sure it confuses them.

Mr. Boo Boo, and Mr. Cat.

And then Mr. Maddox and Mr. Matty.

Also, my boyfriend calls our cats: Bathroom cat and condo cat and Itchy and Fatty.

Ohmigosh, I love this topic! In my forty-something years, I've had a lot of cats to name and to nickname! We had a pair of cats that my sister and I called Boy-Kitty and Girl-Kitty. Boy Kitty became Bukata (BOO'-kata) and a zillion other versions of that and then later he inexplicably became Skipper...but the names get funnier with later cats. Jesse....Jezebel-Emmanuel......Duffy (formally Sargent John Scott MacDuff)...became Duffelbag and then just Bag (awful!! but funny!) or Bagel-duff; my last cat prior to my new kitten was Greta and became Gretina...then Gretuna..then just Tuna and Toonces, also Gretty-baby. I've only had Gigi for four days............God only knows what name-torture awaits, haha!!!!

LOL!!!!! I just remembered that those were a couple more nicknames for my Duffy cat that I had when I was a teenager!!! We too called him Butzie and Butz and Butzie-Wutzie!!!! WOW!! Had I not read your post, I'm not sure I would have ever remembered that!! He was a quite stunning looking brown tabby and white semi longhair shelter kitty.

Ginger is also know as zabu, short for zabumafu, not a clue why I call her this! I also call her puppy cat because she follows me around and greets me at the door when I come home.

ETA: Now that I think about it, I really only call her by her actual name when she has gotten into some sort of trouble. Some others are smooshey butt, fluff face, pooper dooper, Seriously, I need to get out more!

My theory is that the number of nicknames an animal has is directly proportional to how much you love it!

Cami is usually Cami-Wammy, or just Cam, or The Baby.

My parents have 4 cats... 1 of which is mine.

His name is The Dude. And he is called Dude, Duder, Duderino, and Duder Pooter. LOL

The other 3 are Stanley, Henry, and The Beast.

Stanley is called Stan and Stanie.

Henry is Henerd, Hen, and just plain Henry.

The Beast is usually called Beastie.

ETA: Also, our dog's name is Jaz, but I call her Pooper 99% of the time. Once, our neighbor came over to tell Keith (my SO) something about Jaz, and started the conversation with, "Your dog, Cooper..." LOL It took Keith a while to figure out that the guy must have heard me calling her "Pooper" all the time, but heard it as "Cooper". LOL

My late Artemis was always just Missy or MissMiss or The Missycat (yes, with a "The" at the start).

My late Tom was Apollo but that got shortened to Pollo, PolloMan, Mr Fluffy.

I live with a Flo who is called Flobee but who did go through a stage of answering to Chicken. Thanks to a housemate who likes Japanese things she is also Flo-Chan.

We have Poppy who is PopCat, Popster or Po-Chan

We have Tilly who is usually called Tillybear because she is cuddly and likes to hug. So rather than teddybear she is a Tillybear. She is also called Burglar because she does try to rob food from people. And she has her own theme song as when she is on the prowl along bits of furniture everyone starts to hum the theme from Mission Impossible. She is also "SockBurglar" as she likes to bring us socks from the laundry as trophies. Except for that one time she tried to tug one off someone's foot. We got heard a protesting call of "oy, I was still wearing that!"

And then there is Alanah who is Lana or LanaCat or La-Chan. She is the shyest. As a rescue cat she came to the house with some serious behavioural problems - mostly just driven by fear. But she came round now and is now very affectionate. She is also a WheelieGirl as she likes to sit back on her hind leg and pop wheelies at us, she has learned that we like this and she will always, always get a fussing session for it. Silly thing has us trained.

Chaos and Zippy don't have any nicknames, though I call both "buddy" a lot. Their names just say it all, really.

Tiffany on the other hand...she's called Tiff, Sniffany, Hoover, Little Kitty, Sweety, Cutie, Curmedgeon Cat and Freight Train. She just lends herself so well to nicknames. Tiff is the one that gets used the most. The rest are situational.

All of my kitties have several nicknames. Utu is known as Uzi Mau, The British Royalty or 'cheap woman'. My ex's friend came up with that name because Utu was always lying on the floor and reminded him of a prostitute..
Kuura is Kurzi Mau, Mouse or Sheep depending on what he sounds like at the moment.
Casper is Kassu or HassuKassuTassuKarvaNassu.
Tomu is Destroyer of the Worlds, Terrorist or Rabid Racoon. Sometimes also Nalle Luppakorva (loosely translated as Teddy Floppy-Ears, it's a polish animated series: link to pic&info).
