What do you really call your pet?

What’s your pets name? But what do you really call them?

My dogs:

[name_f]Barbie[/name_f], aka Barbs, [name_f]Barbarella[/name_f] Dogface, Ugly girl (she looks like Chewbaccas mommy, she’s ugly cute)

We foster cats, so there’s always a rotation of fun names in our house!

We have two cats of our own: [name_f]Annie[/name_f] ([name_f]Annie[/name_f] Bananie, [name_f]Annie[/name_f] Girl, Prime [name_f]Cat[/name_f]) and [name_f]Tiny[/name_f] [name_m]Tim[/name_m] (TimTim, TimSum, Teeny [name_f]Tiny[/name_f], Timbroslice, TimTam, [name_m]Black[/name_m] [name_m]Flash[/name_m], baby bro, bud/buddy)

We have one seven month old foster right now named [name_u]Ruby[/name_u], but more often than not she’s called Torbie, Torbie Roundhead, [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] Roundhead, Roundhead, or just “stinky kitten”

Another of our fosters is named [name_f]Freya[/name_f], nn [name_m]Frey[/name_m] and momma. She recently had a litter of four kittens, all currently unnamed

I’ve two guinea pigs:
Priggelientje - Usually just Lien (pronounced lean) or Lientje, sometimes Pien, big girl and oldie (she’s getting old)
[name_f]Coco[/name_f] - Co, Cocie, [name_f]Coco[/name_f] [name_f]Chanel[/name_f], Crazy-Co, little one

Our dogs are called [name_f]Minty[/name_f] and [name_m]Fitz[/name_m] and we more often than not call them that but [name_f]Minty[/name_f] does occasionally get called Mentos, Mint or Mint Julep and [name_m]Fitz[/name_m] is sometimes [name_m]Fitzgerald[/name_m], [name_m]Fitzwilliam[/name_m], [name_m]Fitzpatrick[/name_m], [name_m]Fitzroy[/name_m] or any other [name_m]Fitz[/name_m] names that comes to mind.

My cat is named [name_m]Oliver[/name_m]. However, he just gets called [name_u]Olly[/name_u] most of the time. My dog is called [name_u]Max[/name_u], but that’s not an easy name to shorten.

Usually we just call our dog [name_f]Arwen[/name_f] by her name, but sometimes we call her [name_f]Arwen[/name_f] [name_u]Lee[/name_u] ([name_u]Lee[/name_u] is the middle name we gave her when we adopted her), Wen of Ar, Wennie, and [name_f]Arwen[/name_f] [name_u]Baby[/name_u].

We mostly call her [name_f]Arwen[/name_f] or [name_f]Arwen[/name_f] [name_u]Baby[/name_u].
