pet names for pets

born phoenix and skinny, these madcats are rarely referred to as anything other than "mr. phoenie" and "squeezebox" (she does an uncanny impression of one).

our own lucy goes by "goose," gabby is known as "wabbers," and dottie is called everything from "dotbot" to "donnarella."

the nicknames don't make sense but somehow they fit and the cats don't seem to mind.  maybe they have their own nicknames for us, too.  "hairless weirdo," "pillow butt," or "hooman the poo-man" would all fit the bill.

so what do you call your pets?

I call Lucy Goose-ifer, a combination of the words "Goose" and "Lucifer," hahaha.

I call both my cats "buttface." I tell them it is because their faces resemble butts. I'm such a nice mommy. :D

My Cleo is known as Leelee. I will chase her and scream LEELEELEELEELEE. I also call her Pretty-pants, Girly-pants, Jeffery Nommer, Stinky, Little/Littlest, Tiny, Smelly, etc.

My cat Ben is now known as "Goose" and "Goosepants" because he has the cutest little buns and I can't help but goose him as he sashays by.
