Teton was brought to the farm to keep the mice in check.
But he turned out to be the kind of cat who kept all the animals in line. As a kitten, he was always roughhousing with animals monumentally bigger than him - the horses, miniature ponies, goats, even a miniature donkey.
At just 3 months old, he ruled Joanna and Scott Shaw's farm in Elizabeth, Colorado, a 7-acre spread dubbed Snowfall Ranch. So much so, in fact, he often jumped on the animals' backs to better survey his kingdom.
