How many of you have another name for you Pet?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Groovecenter, Dec 31, 2003.

  1. I notice with my family and myself, there is a tendancy to call our animals by other names, "pet names" if you would.

    My dog Pebbles- Pooh bear, pooba, pebblies etc...
    Cat Leo- Fuzz-butt, the king, Leo the lion
    Cat Tabitha- Princess, fatso (she lost all the weight, but we still call her by that one)

    What are you pets "pet names?"

    Well... Once I was angry at my dog Sam, so I called him "Sam (instert N word here)" he reacted to it... he jumped up and started licking my face, so I guess he liked it... so that has sorta become his nickname....

    Then my dog queenie... she has Queensland, Queen-Bean, Queener, eh.. thats it..

    Then my cat Basil... Bas... Basilton.... and ya. thats it.
  3. I call my cat Tiger, Fatty, Cat, Kitty, Fatso, and Whoojababbah.

    Most of them are just noises I make at him, or make fun of him, because he's large.

    Obstensibly, the family cat is named Thor. He is only referred to by such name when dealing with vets.

    It changes throughout the day:

    Morning: Fargin Cat
    Mid Morning: The Cat
    Noonish: Kitty
    Mid-Afternoon: Kitty
    Early Evening: Baby
    Right after dinner: Fargin Cat
    Late Evening: Shnookums (or some such)
    Middle of the night, clawing at the window to be let in: Fargin Cat.

    When he is good, his name is Sebastian. At other times, he is known as Satan.

    Well my cat Simon has Fat Cat, Grease Monkey, Baby Timon, and Loud Mouth.
    My dog Kris has Pup, Pup-a-dup, and Dog.

    I have others for my other animals but there are to many. Maybe cause I have no life. lol.

    My dog, Thurman, has started to answer to "Fat Head" (wife calls him that) and "worthless sack of fur" (we both call him that when he's trollin' for pettin')

    My dad always calls our cat the rat, so I picked up the habit too. The animal, king tut, walnut-brain, and often just "cat" work well in most situations. His real name is Emlet, because I was little when I named him, and I liked the word omlet. I prefer use of his other names.

    My Jack Russell's name is Mottley, but for some reason I call him Scoop.

    My girlfriend has two dachsunds, the first born and the runt. The runt's name is Sampson, but I call him Tubbo.

    My cat Tinker is commonly refered to as Stinker, or just Stinky.

    Storm was always just Storm. He died today.

    Shadow is just Shadow. It fits her perfectly.
  12. IM sorry to hear about Storm Nick, My condolences.

    Thanks for the replies guys, keep em comin if you have em.
  13. Sometimes my mother calls my sisters cat - You little biotch. But without the "o".
  14. Somehow my dog has adopted these other names (im guessing through my brother...):


    Yeah...it's scary

    My dog Missy is "Pinhead", because she is shepherd/beagle mix, and she has this little beagle head on a large shepherd body.

    My dog Tucker is "Elvis", because he has a couple lower teeth that stick out on one side, giving him kind of a sneer.
