My family needs your help…this kitty needs your help!

First, though, the photo below is Friday’s 40-word-or-less Photo Challenge.  Really, truly, does his impish face not compel you to write SOMETHING???  If you decide to play along (details by following the link if you’re new to Friday’s 40 PC), please register your post with Mr. Linky tomorrow.


Back to our dilemma:  it’s not that he doesn’t have a name, exactly; it’s that he’s already had a dozen names and we can’t settle on one!  Let’s go down the list:  He came to us as "Duke" (are you kidding me?  there’s not a "Duke" bone in his body!), and though we first named him "Nelson" (after the band Hawk Nelson), Rachel decided that wasn’t right for him either.  We’ve tried:

  • Pooh (he had a problem with noxious emissions when he was on Science Diet, since remedied)
  • Tigger
  • Rascal
  • Rosco
  • Tricksy
  • Sparky
  • Fred
  • George
  • Leroy
  • Scamper
  • Kat

…there are others, but my children aren’t home to remind me (our dull imagination when it comes to kitten-naming makes you pity us, huh?). He’s sweet & purr-y & playful, and every night he finds amusement in hunting, chasing, then playing with unsavory bugs to their dismembered demise (to date?  crickets, grasshoppers, BIG, HONKIN’ SPIDERS, and cicadas) (there are still spider legs in my garage…). 

So…ideas?  Suggestions?  At this point, everything we try is laughable.  Surely, there is some great name we’ve overlooked. 

I thank you in advance for your serious attention to this matter.
