Call your animal by it's name instead of "It" My dog Kenji!In this sentence I suspect WP was referring to the cat as an 'it'.
Cats are referred to as an 'it' in the english language (as any other animal).
How many of you refer to a cow, pig, horse or any other animal, bird, insect ot fish which doesn't belong to you as a 'she' or 'he'?
Very few, I suspect.
It's the emotional attachment which changes an 'it' into a 'she' or 'he' .
However I'm not 100% sure that 'something' is grammatically correct in that context.
