I call all hedgies bears, because I think they look like little teddy bears. I talk about my "bears" so much that everyone I know now calls them bears when they talk to me about my hedgehogs! Since I have a boy and girl hedgie, my fiance and I usually call them "boy bear" and "girl bear" lol.

The best is how those nicknames have latched onto other words though. Hedgie cages are called "bear traps", and the cage thermometers are "bearmometers", for example. Or if I hand a hedgie to my fiance, I'll say "bear mail!" or "bear drop!". If my girl goes from purring to hissing she's a "bipolar bear".

My bearded dragon's full name is Baby Bowser, but he's usually just called Baby. That's because it took me so long to name him that for a while I just called him baby because he was so tiny back then. Well, he learned to respond to being called baby really fast, so I just left it at that. But now to me, all beardies are referred to as "babies", and the young ones at the pet store are "baby babies"!

I just counted the nicknames for my cat Emmy, she has 12 and answers to all of them. none if them are really funny. I have two other cats Bob and Harley. Harley answers to Bug and Chunk.

My dog Chaz is Monkey because he slept with a monkey stuffed animal when he was a pup.

My hedgie Poe is either Poe bear, poo bear, huffypants, goat head (kansas slang for grass burr), grumpaluffagus, stinker and poot lol

Our hedgie is Quilbur, but nicknamed prickle-butt, grumpy quills(also part of a song I sing to him to the tune of smelly cat) chubbles, and for some reason my boyfriend thinks it's halrious to call him a sledge-hog.... Like mix of sledge hammer and hedgehog?I don't get it but i often hear him referred to as sledge or sledgie.

The cats are fuzz-buts (they're maine coons so they have really fuzzy behinds) the tabby one gets Mr stripy-pants, and the all black one is know as pillow-thief. They are also called the bookends because they have a habit of sitting in the same position at the same time.

I say "spiny" for hedgehog, and when I talk about my bears, people know I'm talking about my hamsters.
Unless I say "sheddy bear". Sheddy bears are cuddly dogs.
