Why Do Cats Have So Many Nicknames?

Here is a thought to ponder today, and please correct me if I am wrong. Why do cats always have so many nicknames? Are our moms crazy? Here are the names that my mom has called us over the years. It is a wonder that we even know who we are!

JB (Jelly Bean) -- Sammie, Sammie Jammie, Jelly, Janelle, Hootananny

PooPoo -- Niki, Poppy, Pops, Poppananny, Snacks

Misty -- Donshi, Schmallie, TaTa

-- Tiffany, Sunshine Girl, Donatelli, Taffy Girl

Do you think our mom is crazy?

LOL, I don't know the answer to that question because I am also that kind of mom. Lol
Beautiful post and funny!

JB, if your mom is crazy then mine is too-she calls me all kinds of things other than "Angus".

Daisy said...

Lots of nicknames means you are very loved! Sometimes my Mommie calls me "Silly-Butt"!

Jan said...

No, we don't think she's crazy. She just has trouble recognizing you so she calls you all by other cats' names. She's just forgetful. Like Jan.

My mommie has lots of nicknames for me too. Sometimes I'm not sure who she's talking to!

JB, we have been adopted for just three months, and Mommy and Daddy already have lots of nicknames for us too. In fact, we have been thinking of creating a "Nicknames Meme"! Great minds think alike! Based on the comments you have received so far, it sounds like other kitties have many nicknames too! Hmmm, we think we will create the Meme and give you credit too!

I give my kitties nicknames too. :) I think it's just another way of expressing love and sometimes in my cat Cricket's case exasperation. :)
Love and Purrs,
p.s. Taffy was beautiful and when I lit my candles tonight I did it for memorial and for blessings for kitties and people too.

So, I think we have a concensus here? Cats must have many nicknames.....because we are all so cute!

I don't think your Mom is crazy, because all of our cats have a bunch of nicknames each.

Your mom is so nice! We get called Knucklehead a lot!! Imagine that!

Snowball said...

JB, we like all of the nicknames that your mom uses - our mum calls us some strange names sometimes too. The main thing is that deep down she loves each of you very much,
