Awww I'm jealous. My cat despises any living thing that comes within 10 ft of her so she would not be happy if I brought home another kitty. :(

My cat's name is Fibi. I got her in Costa Rica, which is why her name is not spelled Phoebe. In Spanish, words are spelled pretty much as they sound. My vet wrote down F-I-B-I when I first told him my kitty's name. So I figured when in Rome ... and decided to keep it that way. The other cat in our house belongs to my brother. Her name is Skittles. Yes, she's skittish.
