No pets at the moment, but we used to have a cat called Inky. We called her that because she looked like a white cat that had spots of black ink on her. We also had two guinea pigs, Minty and Cosmo. They were a bit mean but they were nice to have for the short time they were with us. Both died of strokes
My dog's name is Charlie. I don't know why we chose that name, it's not very creative! But he is rarely called that anyway! His nicknames are Chiz, Chab, Wiggle and Mr. Popcorn (don't ask). He's the dog in my avatar
Cat 1 - Bart. (Full name - Bartholomew). My brother and I named him after Bart from the Simpsons.
Cat 2 - Barney. Named after Barney from the Simpsons.
Cat 3 - Lenny. Named after Lenny from the Simpsons.
Cat 4 - Carl. I think you see the tradition going here.
Dog 1 - Indie. I'm inclined to say that she was named after Indianna Jones. She wasn't. My parents just really like the name.
Dog 2 - Ozzy. The couple we bought him off were Australian, we though it was quite fitting.
Horse 1 - Laurie. We're big House fans in my household!
Horse 2 - JD. My sister wanted to call him Jadey, but it was far too feminine. JD makes him seem like a character from scrubs.
My sister's Chinchilla: Joey. I can only guess this is something to do with her obsession with Friends...
My brother's snake: Jim. My brother was trying to be original and funny.
We also have a big pond, and we named all the fish. We're pretty unoriginal, so its pretty obvious why we choose them.
They're all orange you see...
Previous pets. ie. the deceased:
Cat 1: Whistler. Mama to the Simpsons. She's actually named after a ski lodge.
Cat 2: Paddy. I'm not too sure why Paddy was called Paddy actually...
Dog 1 - Merlin. After...well... Merlin. I miss Merlin!
Dog 2 - Benjy. He was just so cute, and playful. He just WAS a Benjy.
Hamster 1 - Dexter. After the cartoon network show...
Hamster 2 - Didi. After his annoying sister!
Horse 1 - Milly. Was actually my Mums friend horse and then she gave it to us.
Horse 2 - Butters. Was he named after the south park character? I don't know.
We've had numerous amounts of these, but the names I can remember are...
We also have some bats that fly about where we are, we called them Charles and Camilla, although I think there actually be more than two.
We also had some chickens when I was little, but I have no idea what they were called!
Like I said...we're pet people! I also have 3 brothers and 2 sisters. The house isn't quiet!
Growing up I had a dog called Henry. My first pets were fish, I named them Jessie and Noddy. Then I got a hamster, called Claire. I had 2 rabbits called Snowy and Sooty (original ). A fish called Goldeen. Two hamsters called Sapphire (Sapphy) and Hermione. Then two gerbils called Laurie and Smidge. Another dog, called Jacob (Jakey). A hamster called Alba. And now I have a kitten called Loki.
My first cat was called Smoky (even though he was black) named after my aunt's cat who I adored (still do - she looks like the tabby from the wiskas ads )
Our next cat was called Sooty - again black The one we currently feed (not technically ours - but we baby-sit him on occasion!) is a big ginger who has been christened Marmalade...gosh, really need to start thinking of more original names :P
Golden Cocker Spaniel - Poppii
Rabbits - Alfie (Mine) and (My Brothers) Benny
Cats - Molly, Barney, Marmie, Munch, Toby, Tony Jupiter, Peanut, Sammie, Fifi, Buster.
There isn't really a reason just look at them and name them :P Although Toby and Tony Jupiter look identical! So we called the younger one Toby Junior but ended up getting muddle up so he ended up being called Tony Jupiter :L Not very interesting but still :L ♥
