We have given our younger cat the name Angel but i like to use a Polish form.

What are the diminutives of Anioł?

We used to have a cat called Pebbles. I used to call her Pebuszka (spelling might not be right). Some times i just reduced it to Buszka.

Our older cat is called Feniks (Actual Polish form). I call him Fenusz, is that spelling right?
Any other diminutive forms of Fenusz?

Aniołek

While technicaly in Polish you can create diminutive forms of pretty much any noun, the above would be rare in diminutive. Some forms I can think of are

feniks - feniksik
fenusz - fenusik, fenuszek, fenuś, feniu, feniek

(problem is I dunno the word fenusz :)

I should have spelt it fenuś, which is itself a diminutive of feniks.
(I should have said diminutive of feniks not (fenusz).

Your avatar looks quite like my cat Anioł.

That's my cat Kicia. I know, not very creative.
Sometimes I call her Zorrita, due to her "mask of Zorro" facial markings.

I sometimes call ours Bandit, for the same reason. (Maybe i'll try Zorrita next time)

Aniołek is good, or Aniołku also.

Thanks for the replies.

Don't seem to be not many diminutives for Anioł.

I talk to my cats in Polish but my wife and kids talk to them in English.
