Shirts and cats

Pedro and Laura are at the exit of the school. Laura tells Pedro:

-What beautiful shirt you wear, Pedro!

"Well, look," he replies, "all the shirts I have are white except two; all are blue minus two and all striped minus two. Let's see if you know how many shirts I have of each class?

- Well, you must have ... But let's see if you, Pedro, guess how many cats I have at home. Look, in a square room I have one in each corner, each cat has another on each side, and each one has another in front. How many cats do I have?

- Gee, Laura! This is more difficult than the problem of shirts!

Let's see if you can solve the problems.
