Name this cat
Before I tarnish this kitty's image in future posts, let me first introduce the little guy. The Humane Society named him Jake, and he's a 6-year old long-haired, declawed, neutered (sorry ladies), mostly friendly cat. Not being a fan of his given name, and not thinking it suited him at all, I've deliberated over several names. He bites (hard!) so I thought "Bitey" (The Simpson's) or "Nibbler" (Futurama) might fit. I considered a dignified moniker, something like "Senator Cletus Scoffpossum" (Hobo name). Other options have included "Gabbo," (Simpson's again), "Ghiroli" (friend from work), "Lord Wesley Von Snugglekins" (girlfriend's suggestion), "No Kitty!" and "The Kitty." I've taken to calling him "Superdude" (Simpson's) to co-workers with mixed results. Problem is he's really none of the above. So please, help me name this stinky, bitey, whiny, cuddly when he wants to be, always hungry, playful, meowy kitty.
