"Puddy-Tat!"

In fact, it seems like Casper prefers to be called "Puddy-Tat" than be called by his real name.

If you call him "Casper" he'll eventually get around to responding to you, in typical cat fashion but he actually responds to you when you call him "Puddy-Tat".

I don't know why he likes being called "Puddy-Tat."

Maybe it sounds like his former name before we adopted him.
Casper was abandoned. We know nothing about his former humans or where he lived.

Maybe it's because he gets food and attention when somebody calls him "Puddy-Tat".

We don't know the reason but he actually likes it when we say, "Who 'dat Puddy-Tat?!" :D

There’s a certain nickname from the American Pie movies which would be censored here. Krista has taken to eating her dinner in two parts with a break in between.

He basically ignores me unless I call him by his proper name :flail:

Wow, how embarrassing is this gonna be! Atticus, my decision smelling gray male tabby, is often called Coos (sorta' like the "youse guys" you hear in New York but with a "C") or Coosie, which during Christmas became "Christmas Moosie Coos!"

And people are always shocked to find out that I'm gay, lol.
