Oscar the Cat

So a couple weeks ago I took Milo and He-Who-Had-Yet-To-Be Named to the vet for their rabies shots and Milo's pre-neuter exam (Milo was starting to get "those feelings" which resulted in a confused kitten and an offended and combative Darla). As the receptionist took out Milo's file she asked what "Grey Guy's" name was so she could start one for him. With much chagrin I told her we hadn't found one that suited him yet. She cast a pitiful glance at the little guy as if to say, "poor thing, they didn't even give you a name." I felt bad so I asked her if she knew any good names for a grey male cat, but she just shook her head.

We had already gone through a ton of names that either didn't fit him or one of us nixed, but again we went through a bunch of names the next day and agreed on Oscar. That was one we hadn't thought of before and it seems to really fit him. If only we had thought of it the day before so I didn't have to go to the vet with a poor nameless cat.

A few days ago I saw an interesting article about another cat named Oscar. What do you think: spooky or sweet?
