El gato (gah'-toh) cat

Examples:
Me gustaría tener un gato, pero tengo alergías. - I love cats, but I have allergies.
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|-
Granted my spanish is very limited, but how in the...uh...world, yeah, world...whew...do they get
"I love cats" from "Me gustaría tener un gato" ?

never mind the disparity in the number of freakin cats, but wouldn't it be more like "I would love to have..." ?

Am I that bad or is the translation just a tad....uh....loose'

Yes they are using it loosely.

Me gustaría tener un gato is I would like to have a cat.

Me gustan los gatos is I like cats.
