Just like when naming a baby, a great deal of care and thought normally goes into choosing what you'll be yelling at your furry friend for years to come. In practice, however, most of us just end up calling them whatever comes to mind over the years, and at some point realize that those nicknames have actually become their identity. Twitter user @MooseAllain recently shared the unfortunate moniker their pet was doomed to carry, and sparked a chain reaction of other animal owners confessing how their companions' names 'evolved' as time went on. It's one of those truly pure and delightfully hilarious moments on the Internet that just makes you want to tune everything else out for a short while and have a giggle.

Scroll down to see what people are really calling their pets, and let us know what you're guilty of dubbing yours. (h/t)

I cat sit a lot for my sister's calico cat "Quinn" and I've grown quite attached to her. So, naturally I've given her quite a few nicknames; many of them have nothing to do with her actual name. 😄 For instance, I often call Quinn "kittlydo" or Ms. Kittsington. However, the nicknames that are takeoffs on her name are: Quinndowlyn T. Kittsington (the "T" doesn't stand for anything, it's just a filler initial.) My sister came up with "Quinnie Innie Binnie" and Quinneth."
