I debated not telling the family as they had their hearts set on a girl, but I thought that might be denying the male Roxy a chance to be who he is. DD and I were quite okay with leaving the name as it was, but the males on the estate (especially DS) were adament that a "girl name" was inappropriate. I think DS pictured the cat getting beat up -- the sissy cat on the playground...
So after much debate we went with Rocky. I'm not sure it's a gentile enough name because he really seems to be a gentleman -- a combination of rock star wild-man and aristocrat, really.
In just 2 days he has become a part of the family -- boy parts and all.
