When my brother got Batman before graduating University, he got the black kitten for a friend who's cat became ill & passed away sadly. Even though he meant well, his friend thought it was too soon for another cat. Therefore, my brother kept the kitten. He noticed that the kitty was running around everywhere, climbing on everything, jumping everywhere trying to fly. My brother pointed to him "BATMAN", and he stopped, my brother pointed to him again "BATMAN" and he just sat there looking at him. Therefore the cat is named BATMAN & that's how he got his name :).
