What's in a name ?
Have you ever noticed how your pet starts to acquire a host of names other than the one you originally gave him ? My three cats are called Sasha, Rueben and Fergus. Because of her short fuse and tendency for neurosis Sasha has earned herself 'physco black bean bag bitch from hell'. Rueben, well he has a host of names and as he gets older the names are growing out of his increasingly geriatric behaviour, such as, old thing, bum breath, piddle trotters, boney arse, stinky, and the list goes on. He doesn't care a bit just so long as he gets his cuddles. Fergus, has a tendency for weight gain because of his love of food so he has earned, big pig, jelly belly, chumpy chops, fatso and many more otherwise unflattering yet affectionate names. How many names has your pet got ?
