    Default "Nick-Names" for pets !?

    Does anyone else on here call their pets by another name other than what you originally christened them by ?

    The "bairn" - our cat of 15 years and called C-For (as in C for cat, d for dog etc !!!) is called many other names by me !!!

    "Ratty" being one of them as she CONSTANTLY miaows, no matter what she wants - if the door is shut, then she just HAS to be on the other side of it for whatever reason !!!!

    "Chick Pea" is another name shes known by, when shes being "nice" ...

    Any other nick-names for your pets ?

    We call Teddy 'snappy pants' as he still mouths quite a bit being young, our pair are also known as 'mop and bucket', Teddy cos he's like a mop and Voula as she is a bucket i.e. will eat anything.

    Voula is also affectionately known as 'Darth Voula' due to her snorting, snarfling and other deep-breathing ways

    I thought it was just me that was as mad as a box of frogs.

    Zander - GSD - Pandy Woo the ninja numpty or Panda for short
    Sam - Border Collie - Samson the Dounreay wonder dog (he came from Balmore)

    Cats:
    Pyewacket - The cock eyed cacket or just Cacket
    Solitaire - The Chav bird
    Monkeyboy - Does he really need a nickname with a name like that?

    We also had Adolf the anti-semitic puddy tat (It was a moustache thing)

    Zinger the hen - Nugget, Paxo, Dad's blonde bird.

    and last but not least: Smudge the Rabbit - The arm ripper or stilts

    I TOTALLY give up on the "org" your "reasons" are way beyond me and obviously other "orgers" as well !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    The thread was moved here for the simple reason that this is Pets Corner which is the forum for discussions on Pets.
