So far he doesn't have a name, apart form "Oiyoulittleshitstopbitingme!" and "Dontscratchtheiryoulittlesod!" as I've only had him since Saturday night.
He's a 9 month old male with his bits still attached, although if he carries on like he is, I'll be removing them for him!
Anyway, it appears as a first approximation that he's afraid of the dark. I'm guessing this is not normal for an animal that can see significantly better in the dark than I can?
If I turn the landing light off when I go to bed, he starts meowing, pawing at the carpet and backing himself up into a corner and looking less than impressed with the world. When the light comes back on, he's as happy as larry in a couple of seconds, and quite happy to shit on my rug whilst staring me down.
Suggestions, that don't involve euthanasia (for me or the cat) are most welcome!
