My wife’s cats both have last names on their collars… hers of course.
When we got married, one of the cats got her last name changed to mine (coincidentally, the one that sleeps with me). But the collar of the other one still has her old name.
I urged my wife to keep her last name when we got married (she did change her name anyway, so it would match our kids’ names), so obviously this isn’t a point of contention in the Bee household.
But it got me wondering: do anyone else’s pets have last names? And if so, did you (or will you) change their names on their collars when you got married?

LOL!!! Awesome thread Mr Bee! We’ve actually joked around about our cats changing names, so I guess yes?! Our cats don’t have collars or tags, but theoretically since I’m in the midst of changing my name (I hate being in name limbo, it’s so confusing!), so are the cats 😉

Yeh, we don’t put last names on the collars, but they all took his name after the wedding. LOL I even give my pets middle names and nicknames. I’m cool like that. 🙂

This made me LOL. Our vet actually calls our pets PetName OurLastName. So I guess, yes, we’ll change her name as well 😀

My dogs name is a full name. Ok that sounds weird, but her name is Halle Peno. (Jalapeno) but she goes by just her first name Halle.
I guess for the vets sake, she has taken his last name as thats what the bill says! 🙂

@farmgirl2106: My cats have like 6000 nicknames.
Peter Pan = Peter, Pooh, Poohbear, Petiemon (that was when he was a kitten and he was a holy terror: Peter Monster), Snuggle-Up-A-Puss, Monkey.
Glory Be Hallelujah = Glory, Glory Bee, Bee, Little, “Oh my god what are you doing?!”, “STOP THAT!!!!”, Monkey, Baby Girl.
Smee (who just passed) = Schmee, Mr Smee, Smeegle, Schmoo.
Oh and each of my cats also have personalized songs. I’m still working on Glory’s though 😉

We won’t be getting a pet until after we’re married, but we’ll hyphenate future doggie’s name (we are keeping our respective last names after marriage).
I love pets with ridiculously long names, though. My family got a dog from my best friend when she couldn’t keep him and he now has both our last names.

Ha, this is funny! Our pup has his last name, and actually always has. She apparently has to have a last name for rabies vaccine registration and vet records.
My parents’ dog has a middle name for AKC registration, I think that’s funny! But I get it since there could be a million Buddy or Princess Smiths.

Only place our pets have last names is at the vet and it’s based on the owner’s last name. Also, being indoor animals only, they don’t have collars.

First time I printed our dog’s last name was a few days ago when doing our holiday photo cards. lol

Our dog has a first name, middle name, my last name-his lastname.
We got her before we are married so it’s going to stay that way. Her middle name was the name the shelter and previous onwers had but we changed because it did not fit her at all.

My kitties don’t have collars, but at the vet, they’re all listed under my last name. Really, though, I tell my Boyfriend or Best Friend that my cat, the one I’ve had since high school, is Snowflake MyLastName, and he’ll change his name when we get married and he’s officially adopted. On the other hand, I tell him that the other cat, the one we adopted together a few months ago, is Penelope HisLastName. Then we have Chairman Meow StillHasNoLastName; he’s the stray who is currently living with us – but we hope to find him a home soon.

@bakerella: Hilarious!! I put their names into songs so we sort of have that too! Eevy’s, my papipoo, is “Good Morning” from “Singin’ in the Rain” and Jetta’s is “Sisters” from I think, “White Christmas”? We also use the Winnie the Pooh song quite a bit. 🙂

Jetta Lynn M-
Paco “Pacman Jones” M-
Mauser M- (he’s new so no middle name or song quite yet! :))
