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?
