This is a question Pet Names

I once knew a cat called Lenin. It got diarrhea so they renamed it Trotsky. Tell us the name of your pet - but only if you've got an amusing or interesting reason for it. Tiddles need not apply.

This question is now closed.

kitten of as yet undetermined name disappeared for several days a week or so after we acquired it. When it turned up again its mum (a rather vicious local stray) had clawed one of its eyes out so we called it "Nelson"...

slightly un-PC but...
when my dad was a kid he used to have a cat called nigger. Btw, we are talking 50 years ago here. Apparently he used to spike his milk with brandy then go watch him try chase birds by running straight off the shed roof. Twat.

edit: he was also a great fan of the ol' classic spoonerism 'cooking fat'... oh and twat refers to the cat and not my dad

not mine, but...
A friend of mine had a hamster called Jimmy Hendrix. He ran over it with his bed by mistake, totally flattening the poor thing.

So whenever anyone asks me how Hendrix dies I can say with a straight face that he got run over by a double bed.

inexplicable names
I was in a band once.... ah, those were the days... The drummer had two cats, a black fluffy one that was shit scared of everything, called "Some socks" and a tabby called "a spaniel" don't ask me why...

oh yeah, and my Mum's cat is called FT - no, not after the paper. It stands for "Fucking Thing" It was named by a lodger, I hasten to add.

My first goldfish
was called Whizz Fish Swimmy. I still think it's a great name for a fish.

Is a wonderful name for a dog.It sounds like 'constable'.So it's perfectly safe and you can shout at it when there is a policeman nearby.."Now,now Constable, you know you cant shit on the pavement!....or Constable! Stop sniffing that bitches arse!

I raised a kitten once
who was the color of coffee with cream, so I called him "Mit Schlag". I gave it to a friend who immediately changed its name to "Asshole".
My ex-husband also had a turtle named Mr. Reagan. There had been another turtle named Mr. Brown since they were both running for Governor of California at the time his mom named them. Mr. Brown died young, but Mr. Reagan lived almost 35 years. For a while we thought there was some cosmic life-connection between the President and this ugly turtle and that they would eventually pass at the same time. We wondered if we had murdered this poor turtle sometime during the eighties, we could have put an end to the President's evil reign. But what's the point of looking back? The turtle finally died last year and the President still languishes in some nursing home, scratching his claws against the mossy walls of his aquarium.

My little cat was called Morgoth (The original Dark Lord, from before Sauron's times)
She was very small, only about 25cm long even when fully grown.
Still, she used to kill and drag home rabbits which were almost twice her size.
If she had grown to normal cat size, i'm sure she would have ended up killing our dog.

Had a cat called Midge...
It was small when I found it in a plastic bag by the side of the road (along with its highly original sister, Tabby), so it was Midge (as in Midget). Very quickly grew up to be a bloater of massive proportions with a tiny pin head that can shit for England. Midge became Squidge as the evil liquid stuff that came out of it caused it to make noises like an almost empty squeezy bottle of sauce.

Well our cat Mitzi isn't interesting,
Except for the fact that she isn't our cat. She comes round to our house on a daily basis and spends most of the day there. We don't feed her or encourage her, she just likes freeloading.

Interesting? hmmm
My cats are called Enzo and Ferrucio, named after the founders of Ferrari and Lamborghini respectively.
Sad I know, but my missus lets me get away with it.

ooh ooh ooh, (edit) just remembered, lived in a shared house, so everyone got to name the cat - which is how he came to have the moniker: MaxPax Caramac fuckwit the third.

Honest, we used to smoke a lot.

My tortoise was called Sooty
because we found him in an alleyway opposite Harry Corbett's house. He had Sooty gateposts you know.*

Sadly he ran away one afternoon** (I know, I know, but they can shift when they want to) and disappeared into the paddock behind our house. I had images of a horse with a tortoise shoe for years. Most upsetting.

*Corbett, not the tortoise. He had hay.
**Sooty, not Corbett. He deed.

the cats!
my mate's mum got a cat, she called it Zetty, after some opera thing, but since it spent every half hour hanging off the top of the curtains meowing like a monkey, we called it Skitz instead.
She didn't appreciate it...

My cats are named
Shaft - because she's black
and Zed - because he's neutered (Pulp Fiction)
and Spartacus - nobody knows why this happened.

Hitler, Wiggy, and LazyPigBoy
were the names of my 3 mutant Harvest Mice.
They were sisters, and each had only one eye (rejects from a zoo-based breeding programme I was working on).

Named after the three waiters at the curryhouse where we ate the day I got them - obviously they weren't their given names, but nicknames we gave them.

Hitler lasted three years. I donated her to my mum after a while - she loved her like a real daughter. When she died, my mam put a little white cross up over her grave in the garden - labelled "Hitler".
People still ask questions today.

Mums cat..
Ouh it's so fwuffy wuffy, lets call it Snuggles. The evil little shit bites and claws anyone and anything that gets too close. It bit my mums leg so severely last week she looks like a shark has had hold of her.

got his name because as a kitten he kept getting stuck in a bucket. Lambert was named after Disney's 'Lambert the Sheepish Lion' - Lams (nick-name) was the biggest yet meekest of his litter. Sherbert - because he is the color of orange sherbet.

we adopted a cat from a friend, his name is bramble.
They found him stuck in the middle of a bramble bush. he had got his long hair caught in the branches and couldn't get out. He must have been there for a good day or two, as he had been eating the brambles. moral of the story: never allow cats to eat brambles, they end up pissing ribena-coloured wee.

My mother-in-law's cat
is a rescue cat. The rescue centre named it after the street it was found in, so this poor little runt of a cat is officially called "Ponsard".

She renamed it "Bob" at about the same time we renamed it "Squit", due to the overly liquid excretions he'd leave around the place.

Russian Dwarf Hamster
Couldn't think of a name for it - but it kept shitting everywhere so in the end we called it Lucy on account of it's Loose bowels (Lucy - Loosey...d'ya see?)...

I found a little mousie once
and tamed it. I was trying to decide what to name it when my friend pointed out to me, "Your comb is on the ground." So I called it that. It's nickname was "Combis".

called Tintin...

Because when we found her she had a tin stuck on her head.

Stupid, stupid animal.

Also a cat called Dave... no reason, just a cool name.

In my last flat
We looked after a moggy for three months, called "Jemima Puddleduck". I took one look at her and renamed her "Dave".

After three months she wouldn't answer to anything else. Owner somewhat less than impressed.

Two Cats . . .
Jaz & Geordie . . .

The reason ?

I'm a sad old Killing Joke fan

I don't think Jaz would be too happy to find he has a fat black & white female moggy named after him :)
