Pam Rohan breeds cats, but just not any old cat. She breeds toygers. They are cats that look like mini tigers.

Rohan says, "As a child, I always wanted the leopards and tigers." So when she first saw a toyger she was hooked. She now breeds these orange cats with black stripes or dots full time. She says, "Their personalities are as different as your kids."

It's not a bad business either. Each toyger costs roughly $1,200, and Rohan ships them all over the world.
