A cat by any other name...

Today I thought I'd share with you my long list of nicknames. I'm sure most of you know that my real name is Stella. Dad named me that when he first adopted me. After a bit, mum figured out that I huffed a lot, and she had been watching a Harry Potter movie, so she called me Hufflepuff after the house in Harry Potter.

Then dad realised I was a very adventurous cat who liked to explorer things, so I got called Huffle Mawson, Explorer Cat, after the antarctic explorer Douglas Mawson. Huffle is the name I answer to.

My other nicknames include:
  • Huffy Puff
  • Huffle Pawson, because I have four paws
  • Toasty Pawson, as I love to be toasty
  • Snoopy Pawson, as I am a very good snoopervisor
  • Huffle Dum Dum, because mum says underneath my black furs I am very blonde (she's blonde so that means we must be related, yes?)
  • Little Black Cat (that one's obvious)
  • Telly Show Cat, because I love to watch TV, especially the cricket (the sport, not the bugs)
  • Pawson Mawson (mum and dad are weird sometimes)
  • Sticky Nose, because I have to know what's going on at all times
  • Huffelina (don't ask me where dad comes up with these)
  • Psycho Huffle (just because I'll bite you if you touch my belly does not mean I am psycho)
So that's my list of nick names, and there are probably more I've forgotten. Care to share yours?

We have our nicknames (well, some of them - our hu-dad needs to do a little updating) on each dog's page on our website. We might need to do a blog post of some of them though.

Growing up, our hu-dad's (yes, he was once a pup - hard to believe) sister had a cat. When they took her to the vet for the first time, the lady at the check-in desk asked what the cat's name was. Everyone looked at each other and realized that they had just called it Cat thus far. Being a solid black cat, it was instantly named Pepper. But that name was only used at the vet's office. There are even funny stories where the vet would ask how Pepper was doing and everyone wondered who he was asking about.

Our hu-granddad started calling her Smut-Butt for some odd reason and that became her named for 15 years!

I'm called Frasie-Fru sometimes, but I think your names are really cool!

And I love huffing!

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Wow! That's a lot of nicknames. Lately Mom has been calling me "The Flea Bag". I'm sure that's meant with love.


Jans Funny Farm said...

Oh, we didn't realize you had another name. We thought Huffle was it. How about that. Learned something about you we didn't know.

Princess Eva and Brice said...

I only go by Princess and/or Eva. But lately they've called me "Girl Do". I suppose because they call Brice "Boy Dog".

The Island Cats said...

We have lots of names...but here's a few:

Wally: I'm Wally-Cat or "W" (dubba-ya)

Ernie: Easy E, E-Cat

Zoey: The Little Princess, Z-Cat

(Mom likes using initials for some reason.)

Jasmim said...

Oh! We did not know that his name was Stella!
You have nicknames quite fun ^^

Lorenza said...

Hi, Huffle!
You have lots of nicknmaes!
Sticky nose! Sounds familiar to me!
Kisses and hugs

Suka said...

hey Huffle Mawson,

I like "Psycho Huffle" because in my experience with cats they are usually psycho. But I will call you "Huffle Mawson" because that is my most favorite of all, and it suits you so well!

I will not share my nick-names. They are pretty pathetic.


Zippy, Sadie, Speedy and M'Gee said...

Quill and Greyson said...

Stella? I didn't know.

I like Huffle Puff and Huffelina.

I am Toontzy, Finny, and Yourcat

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Huffelina - our favorite - so glad to learn all this about you.

And what is it with cats that you don't like your tummies touched? Belly rubs are the bestest!!!

Woos, TD and Phantom

WOO Huffle. So far tonight huMom has called me Super Spaz and Kayla K.

Wooooooo, Kayla

Stella said...

My Mom calls me StellaBella sometimes and Ali Z is ZeeZee! My Mom makes up a song for ZeeZee that goes like Mimi if you know that song.

Sometimes I stand with my front feet at my Mom's waist and she sings me a Stellabella the Dancing Dog song. I think she just makes all this stuff up and she is just a little crazy, you know?

I like all your names, but Zim calls you Huffie sometimes and I like that one.


H.A. Turbofire, Sibertarian said...

My Human gives me lots of nicknames, but I'll share them later this week on my blog.

But my Human wanted me to mention that there used to be an employee in one of her branches whose name reminded her of you. That employee's name was Hampton Mayson. Yeah, not at all yours. Humans (as you know) are stupid.

Golden Samantha said...

Hey Huffy Puff (just kiddin'!) - you have a lot of nicknames. I do too. As Ozzie, I have Ozzers, Oz and the Wizardress (!). And me, Sammie: Pumpkin (my color, I assume), Pumppers, Pumppie, Sammers, Sam, Boodle and Boodie. Now, don't ask me how they come up with these.
Hugs xo
Sammers and Ozzers

The Kitty Krew said...

Between the 5 of us, we have lots of nicknames, some that are similar, but we each have one just for us. Bugsy is Dearheart or Honey, Sassy is Sweetie, Callie is Boo, Roxy is Baby Doll, and Pixie is Darlin'.

Silly beans...

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

Forever Foster said...

That's a great list of nicknames. My favourite one of Fui's nicknames is Fattyfatty Mushmush.

Did you know when I first came home, my name was Oprah?! That was a name that wouldn't stick!

Reese =^..^= said...

Wow! That's a lot of nicknames. Nice to meet "all" of you!

Cheyenne -Millie said...

That is interesting! So many names for one so small. I especially like Pawson Mawson, Psycho Huffle, and Huffle Mawson the best!

Actually, my mom was putting together a post of all our nicknames. She has been thinking on it. She wasn't sure about some of them.... human sister has lots for her baby princess... Spooky.

Poppy Q said...

I get called,Pops, Poppy Popstar, Poppy Princess, tinks (cause my bell makes noises like tinkerbell), babygirl and smooch.

Parker said...

Oh there are many, but Parker-Pie seems to be at the top of the list.

Vicki said...

Cool nicknames - I get BooBoo (like the bear) and Little Man.

Milo and Alfie said...

Hi Huff,

That's a great list of names! But you missed off the one we call you: Huff!

Love Milo and Alfie xx

Percy the Cat said...

My mum calls me Percy-boo sometimes, or Mister Boo, or her Big Boo. I think that must be because I am all black.

Mr. Hendrix said...

I didn't know your name is Stella! See? We learn something new everyday!

My most embarassing nickname is

"Mr Kitty McPhearson Squishy Face"


Daisy said...

I think Huffle Mawson is one of the coolest names, ever!

My Mommie sometimes calls my brother, Harley Quinn, "Quinto Bean!"

Kari said...

Huffle, does anyone call you Stella? It is such a pretty name.

Pantoef said...

Hey Huffle, I love your blog!
I am too young to really have a nickname, though my humans tend to abbreviate my name to just 'Toof'. Nothing fancy like your impressive list!

Anonymous said...

WOO Huffle - we updated our friends list so it lists the blogs we follow, but your blog doesn't have a "follow blog" button anywhere! We will add woo manually. Sorry about that!

WOOOOO woo rar rar rar,
Kayla and Maebe

The Crew said...

Hmmm...I like Huffle better than Stella. It just suits you.

My nickname is Georgie Pie. It's very embarassing for a Senior Mancat of my stature.
