Do you make up new "pet" names for your pets on a regular basis? I don't mean actually change their name. I just mean find new special, endearing, ridiculous, names that you are pretty sure might get you a psychological evaluation if not a 3 day stay for observation in a mental hospital if people heard you using them.
I am just wondering because if you are one of those people who does that and you haven't used these names for your pet, you might want to try them. You can't help repeating them while your pet looks at you with pure, unadulterated, complete, love. My old favorite is "Scooter Magruder". As in "Mistah Looo (aka Lewis Mulvenon) you are such a Scooter Magruder".
My new favorite, that I just came up with 2 nights ago, is "shimmy shimmy cocoa puff" (yes, like the song from eons ago). Go ahead. Try it. I dare you. It goes something like this, "get over here right now you shimmy shimmy cocoa puff". Do it just once and then try to stop. You won't be able to. You have been warned.
