Faith has many names, but 'only' comes to 'Faith, come on honey'. But she knows to respond to 'Bubbah Fish' (which was short for baby delicious??!!) But then it got shortened and shortened and really in the house she is called 'Bubbah' most of the time. Daft if you ask me, but she is a babe! Oh yeah, a real babe. That Peppadora ManCat said as much...
Now if you want a baby, well, we have Lillibet. At three years old, she really is not a baby, but she still acts like one and she gets called all sorts of names. She mainly gets called 'Bitty' or 'Ickle Bitty Betty'. This just makes her worse and she mewls like a newborn and puts her ears flat down whilst Momma whispers 'I love you' in her huge ears. Sometimes if Faith hears all this going on, she will worry that Lillibet is upset and wants to come and love her and wash her. Lillibet really does have an amazing vocabulary, unlike Gracie who is just one syllable, even when talking to her kittens, she first just sort of yelled at them, but now, she is learning to chirrup and interact verbally. It has been quite funny to listen to.
Even though these tiny babies of Gracie's have been blessed with fabulous names, the Parentals still have kitten box names at weighing time. "Chocolate drop" Says ManSlave picking out Sophia. "Yelly" picking out Flaire. "mwah mwah mwah" he kisses Kevin a lot? "Mouldy" as he collects Floki up. Don't take offence, anything that isn't one colour gets called mouldy in our house by ManSlave. Momma had a spotted pony, he was declared "Mouldy". Momma had a spotted rex Rabbit and he was declared mouldy too. and yes... look at me and even Gracie... all mouldy. This is why we never have any of those tortoise type coloured cats here, they would have a complex!
I, of course, don't have any pet names, I am King Slinky and no one shall call me any different. Well, except Momma. I like it when she calls me 'Rinky Dink' and kisses me and tucks me in my ruggy. ManSlave gets away with calling me 'Wrinkle', but only because I like to sit on his lap and purr. But no one else can call me kitten box names. End of! I am the king of cats and no one can take that place... even Kevin who is named after Edward the Fifth! You work it out!
