When we got our two cats 8 years ago I registered them at the vets and so the nurse clearly took my surname and gave it to the cats. Great, it fit well and made me laugh. Last year we moved but hadn't got round to registering them elsewhere yet. Or so I thought, I have just found out that my husband has actually registered them a while ago specifically so that they would have his surname as apparently he has always been jealous. Im outraged at such sneaky behaviour. Shall I forgive him and does your cat have your surname?

Obligatory photo included

We both have the same surname so yes they do. In your situation you may need to double barrel them OP Grin

I'm already double barrelled thanks to dome mishap in the 1800s, so we'd have to triple. And the cats each have two first names already. It's getting ridiculous. I've decided to let him have the naming of the cats, he adores them and fusses them endlessly.

Just one there. They don't hate each other but they are never near enough to be in the same photo

You could up the stakes and put your surname on their name tags. Or monogrammed blankets or something. You could have have fun with this. Which name is on their microchip?

Forgive. But remind him every time they need the vets they are in his name and he therefore must pay.

Not just pay - he has to get the cats into the cat basket, alone - as they are his cats now after all.

Only my vet and DD's school know me by my married name. I kept my name everywhere else.

Oh I had forgotten about the chips, I may secretly log in and make sure they are in my name.

As for making him pay, well we are married so it's all our money but I may use it next time the litter tray needs a deep clean. They are his after all.

I’m guessing if you had kids this would be more straightforward.

This

Cat needs vet - he has to trap & take the cat
Litter tray needs doing - he does it
Cat vomits - he cleans it up, including hairballs
Cat needs pills or other home treatment - he does it Grin

My animals are all registered so let in my name so if I was to separate from my partner there is less confusion over ownership. Are they mircrochipped- I’m really surprised he can register pets in his name with no proof of ownership
