What’s the cat’s real name?

If the cat’s name isn’t Tuxedo Stan, what is it? Why is the writer for the Yahoo! front page hiding the name?

And what’s up with the single quotation marks? They aren’t the same thing as double quotation marks. In the U.S., we prefer double quotation marks to show quoted matter, irony,  slang, or a coined expression. But not for a pet’s name. The last time Yahoo! staffers did something like this, at least they enclosed the name in double quotation marks.
