When to use "есть" when indicating possession.

I was confused when I started to come across sentences such as "У нас хорошая кошка", because they translate as "(someone) has (something)" but they don't use есть. I found this explanation helpful.

Ohhh, that IS helpful! I knew they didn't always use есть but not that there were rules for when they do and when they don't I like rules :-)
