Would Appreciate help on naming my new horse!

Okay, so here is the deal. If you haven't seen my other post, I just recently bought a 9 year old Dark Bay Thouroughbred Gelding. He has had two owners in his lifetime me being his 3rd. His first owner had him registered under the Jockey Club as "Cat in the House". Yes he is a Storm Cat baby haha. Well anyway, she owned him for pretty much all 9 years of his life until 3 months ago, she sold him to a consignment horse trader, who then renamed him "Guapo".

I have some problems with the name Guapo lately haha. For one thing, it doesn't roll off the tongue when calling his name. It's very awkward to say out loud. I really would like to take his name back to some type of play off Cat in the House. I was thinking of making his barn name Kit Kat, and his show name "Kit Kat Bar". I have realized though that that is extremely feminine.. :p

So now I am asking you all for your help:) What kind of names can you come up with that are masculine and involve the word "cat".

Throw out ideas I don't mind. I just really can't handle "Guapo" anymore!! haha

Here's my ideas:
show name: Out of the Bag - barn name: Cat
show name: Mouse Police - barn name: Mousey
Show name: The Cat's Pajamas's - barn name: PJ
Show name: Cat-o-nine-tails - barn name: Cat or Tails

Of course you could mix and match

I can't possibly try to help out without any pictures! XD

Generally speaking, a lot of people just use the registered name as the show name. I think it's a little ridiculous for a horse to have three names (fortunately my horse's registered name is so short there's no use in having a barn name of any sort...so he just has random nicknames). Your guy is related to mine...waaaaay back there XD

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.
