Come on now.
Debate Round No. 1

I guess I'll start with my argument...

First of all, according to "Cat Names Meow," Mittens is in the top 40 names for male cats (http://www.catnamesmeow.com...).

Secondly, Mittens has a nice ring to it, and if the cat were to have spawn...you could say, "Oh boy, look at Mittens' kittens!" Everyone loves a good rhyme.

Finally, cats are generally not very responsive when called by name, at least in my own experience. Therefore, it doesn't really matter what you name your cat. "Mittens" might not be a wonderful name, but it's not horrible.
