What do you call your cat when nobody else is around?

Asked by GeorgeGee (4925points) August 15th, 2010

Do you have nicknames, pet names, insults for your cat? or do you just call your cat by its proper name?

Her name is Twinnie (officially it’s Antonia), but i call her Pinnie and when my girlfriend is here we call her Pinniemas and Pinniemaster.

My cat’s name is Ankhsenpaaten. I call her “PooPoo”. Shameful compared to her given name ;)

I’m going to kick myself for admitting this publicly. I have the most ridiculous nicknames for my cats. And their names are silly enough on their own.

Mr Schmee (Yes, like the sidekick from Peter Pan) I refer to as Schmool or Schmoodle doodle. it’s okay, you can laugh.

Boo (who I got when I was trick or treating many years ago) I call The Abbles.

Max is Maximus Yoda.

I’m a huge goober when no one is looking. Sometimes even when people are looking. ;)

My best friend has a cat, and her name is Peaches. When nobody is around, I call her stripper kitty.

My cat answered to ‘Fido’. I would have preferred a dog.

Ooops. Two of mine are birds, not cats.

My cats’ names are Ulthar, Sarnath, Kadath, and Hatheg-kla – all named after locations in H.P. Lovecraft stories.

Ulthar is “cat”, and the others are “babies”. That’s it.

I really don’t like cats enough to have four of them. Well, that’s what happens when you’re a bleeding heart for sick strays. * sigh *

My cat’s name was Koshka. I called it “Cat.” ;-)

His name is Franklin. When others are around I call him Frank, Frankie-Frank or Frankie.

When it’s just him and I (sometimes my g/f is there), I call him: Bumpers, Seussie, Grimace or Phyllis.

My sister calls him Frakenfurter.

It doesn’t matter what a cat’s name is, I usually just say “Hey there lil key-key”, as I go in to pet it. I’m a dork.

Oh God….so many, I have to remind myself to use their real names once or twice a day. lol

My old guy that died in May, Gadwicke ( silent ‘e’ ) I called ‘madman’ ‘scruffy man’ and would sing this stupid little ditty, ’ scruffy man, puffy man, little huffy, tuffy man.’ hahahaha

The new cats Mia & Gizzi already had nicknames morphing in the first few weeks I had them.

Mia is ’ Mia honey’ ’ funny’ ‘funny honey’ ’ mimi’ ‘meemers’ and ’ meem.’
Gizzi is ’ Giz the whiz’ just ’ Wiz’ and ‘hot whiz’...yeah, I know….lololol

My geese ’ Marwyn’ and ’ Sonora’ are ’ Mark-o-ween,’ ‘darling’ pronounced and drawn out as ’ darleeeeeeen’ another variation is ’ Darlini’, just plain ’ Mark’ and ‘Sonora’ is ’ Fenora’
’ Seenora’ and ’ Feekanora.’

Alright…I am fully aware that I have lost all respect within this realm now. hahaha

I don’t have a cat.I have a dog . I have called the dog lazy ass. She will lay around like a lump and not get out of the way. If she does move she moans. She is old though.

MyNewtBoobs's avatar

My biggest one is a Maine Coon, and when I’m getting really sick of his litterbox, I call him Sir Craps-a-lot. But all the other names I’ll say in front of other people.

Sasha is Masha, Squasha, Matschka, or Kitty. And Frasier is Puppy (despite the fact that he is, indeed, a cat), Stinky Butt, Mr. Poopy, Fras, or just Stinky.

Prince Bolifur. Special little guy. Chuff face. Mr. Specialpants. Professor Snugglechuff. Chuffosaurus Rex. Pluff-face. Chuff-ball. Lord Nanaki. WHY ARE YOU SO CUTE.

mrentropy's avatar

Oh, I forgot. Junior is also “buddy.” So often, it’s almost a second name. Even Zoey will call him Buddy sometimes.

Coloma's avatar

Oh, I forgot too, I used to also call Gadwicke ‘Milkman’, because he liked a little milk now and then.

It was really me saying, ’ want some milk, man.’ The rest is history,

My daughter thought it was creepy!

Said ‘The Milkman’ sounded like a horror movie character. lolol

And, also, I call Marwyn ’ Squeeny.’ because he makes squeeny sounds when he drinks…never mind. :-/

My cat Ibanez that passed recently (after 19 great years) was IB, ibakitty, kittywitty, mewers, kittykittykittyCAT. My wife’s cat sophie is sofaloaf, sophers, fatty, fat-ass, fuzzball, fluffanutter, and, you little son of a… My kitten Sylvester is, Vester, keekee, Sylvia, Smelly cat, stinky but, and Indiana Jones, because in the cat box he digs like he is looking for a lost treasure. He digs for sooo long, and gets all the way to the bottom of the litter, almost 5 inches. The good thing is that he also buries “stuff”, so we are not suffering from stinky stuff.

LOL…damn woman, you’ve outdone me, and I even held back a little. hahaha

I was just at the back door calling in Mia ( who was IN the house the whole time..:-/ )

It is sooo quiet out here and I feel like my voice echos for miles…I wonder if my neighbors 5 acres up and the ones 5 acres down can hear me. I don’t think I’ll ever ask. lololol
