I have an orange cat named Crash and everyone goes “oh like Crash Bandicoot?” And I got “No like Crash Team Racing” and it still is funny to me.

Sounds like the name of a detective in a 70s' blacksploitarion satirical crime dramedy

Like a person, a cat's full name is only ever invoked when it has done something wrong.

[-] SgtAStrawberry 26 points 8 months ago

Cats have three names, the everyday one, the fancy longer one and their private personal one.

It's completely normal.

My cat's name is Nancy Reagan. She's almost lived up to it. And no, she doesn't like you either and if you try to pet her you'll get what you deserve.

Some cats have official titles. I had another cat whose title was "Chief Inspector." He was known to do home invasions and conduct snap inspections of my neighbors houses. He had more friends in the neighborhood than me.

Uhh Nancy Reagan was known as the blowjob queen of Hollywood so....

One of my cats is Sadie The Goat (the cat).

She had a really bad eye infection when we got her from my in-laws farm and we thought she'd lose an eye so we gave her a pirate name to be safe

She ended up not losing the eye but its still a fitting name

I tried to name my cat Lou (short for Lucifer) but eventually he got renamed Mao because he is loud and vocal and apparently we name animals by Pokemon rules in my house.

I recently got a cat that I named Fraldinha ("Skirt Steak" in Portuguese) because the person that gave it up had named it Li-Fraumeni after a genetic syndrome. He is now called Felipinho (Lil' Phillip), but also answers to Pest and Toe-biting son of a b****.

My cat's name is Possum. Not really a crazy name, but it has caused confusion before.

Once I was picking her up from the vet and said "I'm here to pick up Possum."

Then the lady at the front gave me a confused look and said "We don't treat Possums here."

We used to have a cat we named Julia Hackensplatter, because when we first got her she was so sick she'd cough and shitspray all over the place.

(She got better though, and lived quite a long time after a lot of love and meds.)

Mine goes by Bitty, short for Bacon Bit as she's canonically the reincarnation of a stray I once lured in with slices of bacon.

I almost always refer to as The Bitty, in honor of The Cheat.

We've proposed "Routey" (pronounced like "Rudy") as a nickname for a future pet named "Littleton/Route 495" (named after the MBTA Commuter Rail stop). You could also do "Tony" but that's less fun.

One of my cats is called Jack, but her full name is Captain Jack Sparrow. My dad named her when he was drunk on the first day we got her, after we found her in our garage as a kitten. Idk why he chose that name but I loved it so much I instantly agreed and we overruled my mom's attempts at rejecting it. I always make sure to tell vets her full name so they can put it in her file.
