My 7 year old named the new cat ‘Rosalie’ when we got her last summer.  Between you and me….. what a name!  I’ts cute and all… but who wants to spend their days screaming ‘Ro-Sa-Lie!’!

So I nicknamed her ‘cocotte’.  Much easier to scream out, and it rolls better off my tongue.  Annabelle, the 3 year old, has a better idea: CAT.

“Hey Maman!  My cat loves me!  There’s my cat!  Hi CAT!”.  She refuses to call her anything but CAT, and I think it might just stick.  Unoriginal, yes…. but strangely CAT responds to that better than anything else!

What strange names have your kids called their pets?
