i can't mention their names without mentioning their alternate names. because it's rare that their real names are spoken.

roger (alt: kitty-boo-boo, littlejack, swiper, ricky fitz, tony mingus)
theo (alt: puppy, buddy)

next question:

why do pets get more names than humans?

:confused:

because we love them more.

very true

possessive focus

Time-saving device. So I can call the cat and tell the neighbours to sod off both at the same time.

My son has way more names than the pets, and much nicer ones -- pickle, piebaby, poptart, weasel, kiddo, kidney bean. I call all the cats fuzzy butt and dumbass.

i expect that when i have children (or, more likely, child), there will be even more nicknames floating around. the spouse and i have several silly nicknames for each other, too. you know how in the national lampoon movies ellen always calls clark "sparky"? i'm like that. i don't call him sparky, but what i do call him is equivalently juvenile. and i use it more often than i use his real name.

i know a cat that eats in a little bowl that says "DOG" on it. I find it very funny. I call him "DOG" in a strange voice whenever i see him.

Renaming or morphing the names is just something I've always done with my pets.

My cat is Petey, then became Petey Weet, Eety Weet, Boy, Boyboy.

My dog is Candy, Andy, Poodle Andy (she's not a poodle) Pandy, Girl, Gul.
I chat with an Indian on line and he often spells gul when meaning girl. I think it's cute.

:confused:

If at all, my pets where called - just like 'my' humans are (but who, the dearer they are to me have the more pet names; interesting though that the common English word for 'Kosename' is pet name) - by an abbreviation: Raimi instead of Raimonda, say.
