Thanks for the replies Rhonda, Melissa, and CIndy. It's great to hear a
success story with cats and a shepherd. I definitely intend to tell the
school about our kitties. At this point, I'm just curious to find some
folks who have had good experiences with their cats with shepherds. I may
in the end be completely happy with a lab, golden, or lab/golden mix, but I
surely do love shepherds.
