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. :smt023

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. :smt009 :wink:

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