What in the world is a "Feles lacti-bibens" (FAY-less lahk-tee- BIB-ains) ?

A "milk-drinking cat"!

Cute kitty that is, Michael! And a nice idea with the 'nomenclature'.

And it is very pleasing to see that there are some English native speakers who bother to pronounce Latin properly.

Mostly, when one hears Brits or Americans utter Latin words they are hardly understandable, simply because they pronounce it as if it was written English. Wink

Thanks, Betty. Everything does sound more "scientific" with Latin nomenclature. Smile
