Should I rename my cat?

I have a cat called MacDuff, who is commonly known as Duff. Gigi loves him, but she can't say Duff, so she calls him Buck.

Buck quite suits him cos he's a very camp cat, so do I rename the cat or not?

Sounds to me like Gigi has discovered his full name - Buck MacDuff. Good name, that!

That has a nice ring to it. I thought my friends cat was called cough and when I asked her why, did he have a cough when you got him, she said no its what she kept saying when he got in her way. :laugh:

No you can't rename your cat you stupid girl!

It would be catastophic for the poor thing, I bet it would rather have a catheter inserted with a cathode attached with a cation conductor attached making it caterwaul all night.

What are you going to do with all the other things Gigi can't pronounce properly...get them all changed as well!


TSK!

I would hate it if someone completely changed my name.

however when I was little we used to go vist Mrs Mcphadsion down the road from my granpas, she ended up being called Mrs Badger by us three and we still all call her that now. She finds it rather sweet, but noone else calls her it.

Please excuse my over-zealous friend, but she has a point. You should not change his him, for he was so named. However, calling him Buck temporarily will not affect him, IMO, because the main sound he will hear, ie the "u" remains the same. Gigi will learn his real name. Cat's also right on another point (pains me to say it). Will you start referring to yourself and Cockney as bwer bwer or doo doo? I think not.

Oh I don't know ladies! Our rabbit was named 'Babe' but I didn't like it so after a while I called her 'Mrs Rabbit'......

After a few months the kids started calling her Mrs Rabbit too and she didn't mind at all, in fact she didn't answer to Babe after a while!

Do rabbits answer to their name then?
