[quote] Felinophobia- Fear of cats [quote]
Ailurophobia is the fear of cats.

For my own personal fears, I'd have to list:

Acro, Agora (slight, and mostly in buidlings with wide open spaces... weird, huh?) and Ophidiophobia (the fear of snakes)

Hmmm I used to think fear of spiders was the number one phobia, it's no.4, fear of snakes is higher.

Seriously:

Phobias are weird and I can be a strange mix in one body (I was reminded) Sun night I do have at least one [phobia]. Went to see Joshua Bell perform “The Red Violin” on his 290 yr. old Strad. (GREAT). Only problem I had not been to this hall frequently, and ordered the best I could get on short notice. Front row dress-circle seats in exact center of this horseshoe balcony..

This row has that (feels like) 8” wide path between the chairs and railing, with the railing hitting knee height (not kidding) when I was standing - to my 5 ft 6” height

I’m sliding past women and men (some males endowed with enormous girth and huge donut middles (which I thoroughly resented at that moment) trying to maneuver 25 seats round the horseshoe leaning INTO them, (and I am one whobelieves in personal space) fighting an overwhelming urge to grab each shoulder as I passed, - or once when the line of people moving in front of me stalled beating down an almost uncontrollable, ridiculous urge to grip the man next to me around the neck, till the group in front of me moved; or just faint dead away-- because the rail is knee high on my other side with a 2 STORY drop to the floor below.

Sick and dizzy and disoriented and feeling like some sort of waking nightmare. Bizare because I CAN JUMP OUT OF AN AIRPLANE!. This just does not make sense! I will NEVER order those seats again.

Or more in the spirit of the proceeding posts:

Aurum auris tympanicphobia
Fear of those whom tell me what they just KNOW I hear

I fear stupid people. That's not on the list, dammit!
Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath. This made him...a super-callused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.

Gamesh....

Max, I think Dopaphobia from a few posts back might apply?

Then there's Piphobia - fear of math
Uphobia - fear of UFOs
Xphobia - fear of the unknown
Then there's plain Fobia about speling wrods rong

Mary S, I hate front row balcony seats too, and walking on suspension bridges across the harbour. I always felt I would throw my wallet over, drop my binoculars, or something equally stupid. Posted Image
