Our cat’s name is technically “Aileen” (we adopteed her at 9 months).. we decided to call her “Ali” but for some reason I always just call her “Lovey”!

We call Luke a few different things… Lil mahf or mahflet. The “mahf” was started by my fiancé. His friends got it from some tv show and it’s short for mother f*cker haha. But mahf sounds cute.

And then there is my cat, Eli who is AKA:  Fatty, Fatass, Little Bastard, the Prince, sweet boy and some names Fiance has given him that I won’t repeat LOL

He will NOT look at a camera, but look how sweet he is when Mama is sick!!

We have two cats: Snickers: she’s a tortoise shell cat (black and brown), hence the candy bar name, Lizzie: she’s a yellow tabby and we have one dog named Woods (see pic below).  My Fiance had the cats before we met and we got the dog together (my Fiance is big into rescuing animals but this is it!! No more ๐Ÿ™‚ )

Nicknames for Snickers:

She is a FAT cat so we call her Snackers ๐Ÿ™‚  We also call her Snix Snix, Snickies, and Snickerdoodle

Nicknames for Lizzie:

Lizard, Lizzie girl, Lizzie Liz

And our baby, Woods …Fiance found him and 4 of his siblings in the woods…this is how he came to name him.  So cute. 

Nicknames for Woods:

Woody, Woodney, Woodserton, Woody Woods, Woody Poody,  Woody Poody Puddin Pie

-Christmas pic was back in 2009 wearing my turtle sweater that was too stretched for me to use anymore (before he put it on ๐Ÿ™‚ )

-Fall 2010 having a great time running around the park

@MrsSaltWaterTaffy:  OMG I just saw how much your Ella looks like my Eli!!  Which is funny, because when I adopted Eli it was a dark barn and I thought he was a she….Eli’s name was Ella for about 3 hours before I noticed LOL.

I am so glad that we are not the only ones with silly pet names!  Our dog is Diesel, and yes, we know that’s a strange name for 14lb furball.  We found him on Petfinder, and in the time between when our adopton application was accepted, and we brought him home, as we discussed names, Darling Husband jokingly would call him “Terminator” or “Bone Crusher.”  The funny thing is that since Diesel is a puppy mill rescue who missed some crucial socialization, he’s afraid of engines.  Oh well!  We love him more than words can say.

Somehow Diesel earned a “the” before his name.  I don’t know how or why he became “The Diesel,” but he did.  And of course we frequently use baby talk with him, so The Diesel becomes Da Deesoo.  I also call him Goober, Gooberty Goo, or Gubenschmertz.  No idea where those came from!  DH usually calls him Baba (again, no idea where that’s from) or Bugger Butt.

Lol too funny. I never thought about it, but we totally do. My rabbit’s name is Pandora, but we will often call her “The Buns” or “Moose.” Not so many pet names with the cat. His name is Shadow–my husband calls him “Boy” sometimes LOL. Well, actually his full name is Shadowfax, but we always call him Shadow, so I don’t think of it as a pet name, more of just an abbreviation. And of course some photos for good measure ๐Ÿ˜‰
