Please do not believe any reports that this kitten was introduced to our family just for me. Clearly this is not true. We had a HUGE problem with naming little Scrapper because ROSS was being SUPER picky about the whole thing. Seriously! The conversation went a little something like this.
Me: What should we name the kitten?
Ross: Oh, I don't care- it's your cat.
Me: OK, then I like Dodger from Oliver Twist.
Ross: No, that is a silly name.
Me: OK, how about Toby- he kind of looks like a Toby to me.
Ross: Have you never seen Roots? We can't name a black cat Toby- we may as well name him Kunta Kintae.
Me: OK then, what should we name him?
Ross: I don't care, it's your cat.
We ended up with Scrapper because he was the runt and yet he lived when two of his other litter mates died. He is a little fighter. I liked Rocky, and Ross said if I named him Rocky, he would just call him Scrapper. He won- even though he didn't care. . . :)
