Default Kitty Nicknames

Buffy has a few nicknames.

(1) Fluffy McBuffy-pants.

She has very soft furry fluffy hindquarters.

(2) Flippy Tail.

She wags her tail. All the time. Sometimes she wags her tail in her
sleep. She actually woke me up at 6AM by thwacking me in the face with
her tail. I think it startled her as much as it did me.

(3) Pretty orange stripey girl.

self explanatory

(4) Big fat belly cat.

Also self explanatory.

Oh, and I forgot (5) Rumblebug. She purrs very loudly. She's a happy
cat.

The only nickname I've hung on Minnie so far is Kittydawg - because:

1. Unless she's sleeping, the only time you ever see that tail hold still is
when her face is in her food dish eating...then it might actually lie still on
the floor for a few seconds. The rest of the time it's wag, wag, wag.

2. She buries things. I left a folded-up blanket on a hassock in the living room
last week and she immediately claimed it as her new lounging spot. This
afternoon, I found three of her favorite toys, including her beloved rawhide
shoelace, all hidden in the folds of the blanket.

3. She whines just like a dog whines - especially whenever I won't play with her
because I'm busy doing something else, or I get near the cupboard where she
knows the kitty treats are but it doesn't look like I'm getting any out for her.

I haven't actually called her Kittydawg out loud - yet - but I do think it to
myself every time I see that tail of hers going a mile a minute.

Bonnie is BonBon, Bonnie Girl and Gannet (for those of us who have seen her eat)

Apoganza's nickname is LouLou because that's what the people I got her from called her

That reminds me of the time my parents came to visit (many years ago).
My Dad was strictly a dog person, and we had cats. Pyewacket (RB)
decided to convert him. Every time my Dad sat down, Pye jumped in his
lap. By the end of the visit, My Dad was callying Pye a "puppycat'.

Everybody uses those. They go along with "Careful" (often spoken just a few
seconds before the cat and whatever it is climbing on at the moment crash
simultaneously to the floor) and the classic, "What are you DOING?"

That's cute! My father didn't like cats at all. He always felt there
was something sneaky about them. No cats allowed!

Mom & Dad's neighbor (now my neighbor) had two black cats, Fedders and
Schwartzie. I used to cat sit them. When Dad was still alive he would
see the cats walking around behind the house he'd say, sotto voce,
"Those cats listen to everything we do."

Need I mention Dad suffered from dementia? But even before that he
never liked cats. He always thought they were sneaky.

I don't understand how someone can't like cats. They're so cute.
They're pretty. They're soft! They purr!

Stand offish? Okay, not all cats want to be lap cats. But I've rarely
encountered one that didn't at least accept the occasional quick pet.

Buffy was skittish when she first came to live with me because she'd
been bullied by another cat in her former house. Once she got
comfortable with the fact that it was just her, no other cat, she got
very happy and playful. And turned into a lap cat.

Wow, it's horrible when someone's dementia makes them paranoid. I've heard
about people who became very delusional in that way, and their life was
miserable. On the other hand, I've also heard of people who were really
unhappy and nasty throughout their lives, but when they got dementia, their
personality totally changed and they became calmer, warmer, and just plain
nicer. Maybe their dementia destroyed the memories that made them miserable,
so they didn't have those feelings anymore. That's a mercy! It was a mercy
for their kids, too, who had terrible relationships with their parent until
the change in personality.

These were all parents of my friends, btw. That's how I know about them.

Back to cats:

I don't understand how someone can't like cats. They're so cute.

I said this once to a friend. We were talking about how some people have
a phobia about cats. I didn't understand why. Being afraid of big, mean
dogs I do understand, but housecats aren't very dangerous, except in rare
cases. She said it wasn't a rational fear like that, it was more a sense
of revulsion. She likened it to how a lot of people feel about bugs - a
"don't let that thing get near me!" kind of feeling, even toward harmless
bugs. There isn't any real danger, and you can't reason people out of it
because it's an irrational phobia. I understand about those, even if it's
hard to imagine feeling that way about cats. I've been a cat-lover since
I was a year old!

You can't reason someone out of a phobia, because phobias aren't
reasonable. They just are.
