Hi, I have two border collies and two teenagers who have two cats (my daughter also has a sheltie). We wouldn't have any cats except my parents found a mom cat and her two kittens living in thier barn and one of the kittens fell madly in love with (and only with) my son, her name is Jasmine. The mom cat, now named Mumzie and happily living in my parents house, sleeping on my dad's bed (he claims she is the only cat he's not allergic to ) turned out to be pregnant and had a litter of four. My daughter fell in love with the sole orange male in the batch, his name is Ivan McGee and seems to be a genius at figuring out how to open things; his current project is my nightstand drawer because he knows my ipod is in there and he is beastly for trying to bite the earbud wires!

Jasmine, who is mostly coloured like a linx point, is now just under a year and a half and is a timid thing except where my son is concerned. She wraps herself around his neck and crawls all over him purring and bunting him as if he were a long lost love. It's really almost embarrassing to watch.

Ivan will be a year old in three weeks and has no fear; in fact I think I've seen him startled once and he regained his composure so fast it was hard to tell if he had really been afraid. I almost had heart failure the day I looked over to see him nose to nose with my male border collie who was all teeth and uttering death threats because the cat was trying to eat out of his dinner bowl! The dog stopped the minute I spoke but I still had to retrieve Ivan so Devin could finish eating in peace. Thankfully that's the closest we've come to a cat and dog altercation and now my son has taken to giving Ivan his own few pieces of dog food to keep him occupied at feeding time.

Anyway, that's our family in a nutshell,

Yes and we're all crammed into a two bedroom apartment which makes it really cozy!

The kids were trying to get me to take in a cat that a previous tenant abandoned in the building. She's a beautiful little girl but there's no way we dare bring another living thing in here. She had to be taken to our local shelter but I've done a bit of work here and there with them and they're really good there. She's young, pretty, and very friendly, she should have no trouble finding a good home. The kids gave me a hard time though when I cried after dropping her off.
