A Name for Our Gibson Girl!

I'm happy to announce that our little Gibson Girl now has a name!

Our friends, Rebecca and Barry, who assigned the name "Gibson" to our dear little Gibsons came back to bid again, and they were the winners in our Tabby Girl's naming rights auction!


Meet Pheona Gibson.    

Originally, Rebecca thought she would give her the name "Phoebe".  There was once a very special black and gray Tabby in her life named Phoebe,  and she thought it would be nice to honor her by making the Gibson Girl her namesake.

But then she realized there had already been a "Phoebe"on the IBKC,  and she came up with another plan.   She would be named Pheona, a derivative of Phoebe, which means bright, radiant, and shining.    

How perfect!

And her initials are "PG" which is the nickname Barry gave to Rebecca, which stands for "Pretty Girl".    

And Pheona is a very, very pretty girl.

Thank you once again for putting so much care and thought into the name selection.  Pheona really suits her so perfectly.

Thank you too for your generous bid!   You guys are great, and we appreciate your support so much!


We still have four kittens to name.  If anyone would like to get in on the action, please check out our auctions.
