Found a kitten, uber cute

Saturday morning, while trying to go to work at the co-op, I saw three women chasing a kitten down the street. I thought it was one of their kittens, and got out to help because it kept running into the street and I live on a really busy main road. 20 terrifying heart-in-your-throat minutes later, the kitten was caught and... it belonged to no one, no one can take it. Can you see the "SUCKER" written across my forehead now? Yep. Thought he was feral, put him in my cat's "travel" crate (which is a large dog crate), put in some food and water and a litter box, and went to work, planning on giving him to a rescue organization on Monday. Spoke to kitty rescue on Sunday, they told me they've got no room, no other rescue places/shelters are taking anything because they're all so full. Pair that with "my boyfriend is in love with the kitten" and it looks like we've got a third cat. He's calmed down, and is now a real sweetie who purrs and purrs and is a total lap cat. He took a nap on the couch with my bf yesterday and just snuggled and purred the whole time. We brought him to the vet yesterday, and other than the usual parasites (ear mites, worms -- I took care of the fleas on Saturday), he's healthy. Felv/FIV neg. He's in the 10-12 wk age range, though bony thin, but he eats well and I got him a good no bi product no corn food so he should fatten up quick. No name yet, but I'm open to suggestions. My requirements are, however, that it isn't a name that obviously describes him (no "pumpkin") and no human names that one might actually name a human (i.e. one of my other cats is "Atticus" but I'd never actually name a human that).

Here are some pics!
(He's polydactyl!)

We've been calling him..
Sir Didymus
Didymus
Sir Did
and
Did

Not Diddy. If bp and the kitten want to have a special "diddy" relationship, I'm not going to get in the way of that.

He is the sweetest kitten ever!  You were definitely meant to rescue him.

i visited RC and Baby Did (RC calls him "the baby" also,  :)>>>) and he was all motorboat purrs and big paws. mega cute. we didn't get the bath in due to lack of time/scheduals not matching, but he will be clean soon enough.

what is funny is to watch him with his bro munchie. munchie acts like he is "too cool" for Diddy but then gets all in his face and hisses at him. then they bat at each other "play style".

Kitteh Bath!!  I had to wash his paddle-feets to night because he did the "kitten classic" dancing in poo. I picked him up and I was like "Man you stink, did you fart?" No. Poo feets. TO THE SINK! He wasn't thrilled, but I didn't get attacked. He was just squirmy.

Munch is now willing to eat with the kitten eating beside him. Atticus is not as impressed.

(And yes, I have insomnia. :| )

He is so super cute - reminds me of my neighbours cat who is so friendly & always talks to me through the window.
You've made me want another cat.....but I don't think my Gary would be a happy cat if I did!
