Felida is a desirable area of Vancouver with great schools, open space, view homes and upscale neighborhoods. Its name is a curiosity. The story goes, when the Post Office was established in 1890, the name Powley, an area resident was submitted. The name was denied, but the Post Office suggested instead, “Polly.” The postmaster thought the name sounded like a parrot and remarked, “they might as well name the post office after my cat.” So he submitted “Thomas,” the cat’s name, as well as, “Tomcat, and “Felidae” – Latin for big cats. Felida was approved!
