Socks the catThe Media Guardian is reporting that a former Blue Peter editor has been suspended from the BBC over allegations of another case of viewer deception following a public vote to name the programme's cat.

It's believed the name which came out as favourite among Blue Peter viewers was deemed inappropriate so the feline friend was named Socks instead by the programme. (Visit Socks' website.)

Newsnight doesn't have any pets (unless you count the mouse Jeremy claims lives in his office) but maybe we should. Maybe we'll get a dog. Only thing is we'll need a name for the pooch - any suggestions?

No prizes, just a bit of fun...

THANKS FOR ALL YOUR ENTRIES - THE VOTE IS NOW CLOSED
