Name:  Caillou (see Caillou)

Location: West Hartford, CT (USA)

Story: "...He started off as CAYU (cat as yet unnamed), and that sounds very similar to the French word Caillou. This means Pebble (or in slang, means Bald - which is why they named the children's cartoon character Caillou, I suspect)./ Anyway, he is now formally known as Caillou Argenté  (silvery pebble) but also responds very well to the sound of a can opener!"
