Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

What do you call your pets when you're not calling them by their given names? Please illustrate with pictures!

A:

Dear you,

Baby.

Buster.

Bucko.

Bad cat (he has a terrible affinity for getting on top of counters and scratching the couch, unfortunately).

Good kitty (this one is probably the most common, actually usually in the context of me scratching his head and crooning "Are you a good kitty? Who's a good kitty?" in a sickly sweet voice.)

Best,

-the Goose Girl

Or Jetterson Airplane or Thomas Jetterson.

Sometimes known as Jert or Jert-jert because he is a doofus.

Fuzzbucket, Catloaf, Flatcat, or Yelly McYellerson, depending on what he's doing.

And my personal favorite, Zap Meowsdower.

He recognizes several of these names, he's just really selective about when he cares enough to respond.
