    iiis and eeees are just to make them sound latinish

    Sorta like this
    Phal Kei Westii var Wolfii

    Which sounds all official doesn't it... LOL

    But I read somewhere that once you get so far down into crossing and interbreeding you aren't allowed to use true latin anymore for the names and grex names so they try to make it sound latinish.

    I love it Wolf, if I ever get a new breed to name, that's going to be second on the list, right after "Lois Suprock" (my mom). But I'd like to name a Catt for her.... So you get the Phal!! Mmmmm let's see, then if I name one for mom it would be C. Loisii Suprockanium???
