My brother makes fun of me because I have six different nicknames for my cat. He says it’s silly. Is he right?

Your brother is right. It is silly to have nicknames for your pet.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go take my pal Buster (aka Bus, Buddy, Bud, Bubba, Bub, Stinkey, Bussie, Stinkerbutt, B.G.R., Snouty McSnout, and Mr. McSnout) for a walk.
