Mind Teasers : Tricky Brain Teaser Problem

Difficulty Popularity

I was invited on a pet show by a fellow colleague. Since I was a bit busy that day, I sent my brother to the show. When he returned back I asked him about the show. He told me that all except two animals were fishes, all except two animals were cats and all except two entries were dogs.

To his statement I was a bit puzzled and I could not understand how many animals of each kind were present in that pet show. Can you tell me?
