Thanks Choking, but the general temperament "standard" of this breed is that it is generally very good with children and other animals. Since I had four cats at the time I acquired her and also work in cat rescue and fostering, this was one of the main reasons I selected her. That was my point. I wasn't trying to talk you into a collie, I was just trying to point out that your perception of the temperament of *all* herding dogs might not be correct.
