Nick names

The roomie got off work and decided to take a shower. Now, she leaves the door open because of the steam, and the other roommate is totally blind so she couldn't look if she wanted to, and I'm not interested... well, we're all straight, just not "attached" feeling guys are more trouble than they are worth. So, after she got out, she checked the room and shut the door. About 30 minutes later I go in and there are two cats. "Did you know you left a couple of cats in here?" I asked. "I looked, I didn't see any cats," she replied. "Who?" "Stinky and Fluffy Butt." ...short pause... "Oliver and Tony?" she asked. "Yeah." "Huh..." "That surprise you?" I asked. "No, just that I figured out who you were talking about from the names." So, do your cats have nicknames? Most of mine have a LOT of them!

when i had lots of cats mine all was usually named what we called them as i went by their personalities when i did name them i believe. the funny thing tho is my girl dog here Coco, has gotten several nick names from the whole family. from the love. like at times she thinks her name is baby girl, by me and momo love by my daughter.

I suspect that Oliver thinks his other name is "Is that my baby boy?" because we call him that all the time. He's been crawling in the roomie's arms in the bathroom because he doesn't get to see her as much as he would like. Remember, this is the cat we bottle fed...

I knew a guy who had a chocolate lab named Coco, but he always referred to the dog as "Flab Lab", because the dog was overweight and lazy.

Well, I call related cats by "group" names, but most of mine have "real" nicknames, but these aren't the usual ones. Oliver is generally "Fluff Bucket" or "Lard A$$" tho Tony is also sometimes the latter - because they are both on the heavy side. Rygel, the big cat in my avatar is "That White-Eared Cat", if you look closely, you can see why. We also call him our "Lassie" cat because he's the one that generally lets us know someone is locked up some place, and sometimes its even HIM!

Hi, winterose, didn't you mean "buddies" ? Like... good friends ? You are funny, winterose :) And ElicBxn , what does your cat do when someone is locked somewhere ? And how come people got locked up in first place. It's like one closes the door and lock it and then the key is lost...

My dog is called Toni. He is half a Boxer and half a Vizsla. I like calling him names like "Goby","Boby","bumby" (he likes jumping like a young deer when he runs after things.) "Goby" is a monster from Maple Story game. My dog reminds me that kind of creature when he jumps on me, trying to take what I hold. I also call my dog "Tsuri" because he likes the stones that I throw for him and "Tsur" is Hebrew for stone.

By saying "someone" I mean another cat. And Rygel will meow (and since he has some Siamese in him, he can be quite loud and annoying!) He is also "The Cat Who Will Eat Us In Our Sleep" because when he was a kitten he woke up from a nap with me and bit me because he was hungry!

When we named Oliver, he was a one week old kitten who was just a little mite. He grew up to be a fat, semi-longhaired PITA.

@sugartoes The people who lived across the street from my roommate's folks had seen two kittens, same age, in their back yard the evening before. Believing that the mom might be moving them, they left them alone. The next morning, only one remained. They didn't think the mom would've waited 10-12 hours leaving the baby, so they brought him in and gave him some of their baby formula. When we came to see her mom, they brought him over. One look and I took him in my hand, drove to a nearby pet store and got some KMR and bottles and drove back to feed him. 10 years, 2 months and 3 days later he has never spent a night any other place than our house.

My cats back then when I was a kid has different yet simple nick names, "whity", "black", "cut" (translated in English, a cat with no short tail). In that way, they can be easily distinguised, my mother praised me for giving those nicknames haha. Though a lot of them has the same colors. I use number like whity1, whity2 and so on.

We give them names that may - or may not - suit them, but they EARN their nicknames!

Only one of my cats had a nickname. It was a female calico and she was very prim and proper. I called her Miss Priss because it just seemed to suit her.

Oliver is Fluffy Butt, Tony is Stinker (if you smelled his poo you'd understand!)

Hi Elic.... well, since my mom passed away, I now have (omg) 17 cats! Spruce goose! I never ever in my wildest dreams ever thought I'd have HALF that many! 17! I've brought one home so far and have the other four to go. I'll get them all eventually but it's not the best of time of the year to be adding more to my population but what choice do I have.... none. I just know there's going to be more cat fights than ever before and I hate it but I can't turn them away. All I know to do is to do the best that I can for they're NOT going to the pound! Oh hell no way! Ok ok, to the discussion at hand, yes they all have nicknames. Chopper's nickname is "Little Guy" Daisy's is "Pretty girl with a pretty pink nose" Rascal's is "Bad boy!" Bobo's is "Sweet handsome baby boy" Even our dogs have nicknames, Toby's is "Big boy" and Chloe's is "Big girl" Like you, ours have a few of them but those are the most used.

My son has his own set of names for the cats, Shrinky is one of them. We have Princess who is actually Princess Inky. Then Creamery who is also known as Fluffernutter, and Tiger gets called Buddy a lot. They are all stinkers as far as I am concerned.

My cat is supposed to be called Flojo (and her original name was Emily, it didn't suit her at all, too soft), but I often refer to her as Babes, Baba, or Moggy. Mum's cats are called Ellie and Soxx but I call Ellie..Ellie-Babes quite a lot. Mum used to have a tortie and white cat we named after Jurgen Klinsmann, the German footballer, even though it's impossible a tortie can be a boy..but Mum said after a while that it was 'stupid to call her Klinsmann' so we shortened it to Klimmy lol. When I found out a cat of mine was a boy (he was called Jodie), I tended to call him The Boy, for obvious reasons..another cat was Thebes but I would often say Febes just to be silly..oh, and not forgetting her sister Chloe, who my brother would call Owl 'Ed..shortened later to Ols. No wonder cats look at us all wide-eyed!
