I've also an Arahbo player,
I like your deck version, somewhat different to mine, more centered on cat tribal and equipments rather than lifegain.
Things I think you could change: Sword of Feast and Famine and Lightning Greaves are awesome commander staples, but just in Arahbo are negative: your equiped cat can't be target of any of Arahbo abilities due to shroud of the greaves, and protection of the sword. I know they are powerful but you will be throwing stones to your own roof. Try antoher swords like Sword of Sinew and Steel and Sword of Fire and Ice , that none of them give protection from white or green, Arahbo's colors.
With only 13 artifacts in a 100 card deck, Mox Opal , another awesome card, sadly will not work as fine as if you are playing a real heavy artifact deck.
Some cards you would love to play in your deck: Feline Sovereign , Kaheera, the Orphanguard (not as companion, if you want to keep your non-cat creatures, but into the 99s), King of the Pride , Sacred Cat (Awesome in your life gain strategy, and if dies will be back), Duelist's Heritage (Much better than, for example, than gigant growth, and you can use this enchantment to make politics offering opponents double strike if they don't attack you). Heroic Intervention or Teferi's Protection : In this type of deck, you need some instant protection to evade mass destruction. Return of the Wildspeaker , Hunter's Insight or similar cards: With Arahbo effects, you will draw 4-9 cards easily, so you will no run out of cards if you have some spells like those.

Saccox Believe it or not, I considered all of those already. I found that Convoke wasn’t ideal because sometimes I would need the removal in early turns before getting too many creatures out, and with Seraph, I would have enough tokens to win before playing it. Sacred Cat was passed over because the other one drops don’t require you to pay for the token, and the game doesn’t last long enough to build up the mana needed for Spawning Bed so it doesn’t give enough advantage to justify the chance of missing out on the turn 3 Spectral Procession. I love these cards and wish I could have made them work with the deck, but unfortunately they didn’t fit as well as I hoped they would. It’s good to see that someone else had a similar thought process though.

Raining Cats and Dogs Nice work bdodds, I think you have selected a handful of great cards but I'd think you could benefit from an earlier CatDog play and cheaper creatures to really start raining cats and dogs. Even without Aluren, every creature coming in with an extra token produces insane value. Especially considering your general's ability.
Below, I would like to outline 4 core concepts and considerations. Ramp, Creatures, Protection, Draw.
Ramp - Prioritizing cards that help you play Rin & Seri turn 3! Nature's Lore Rampant Growth Three Visits Boros Signet Selesnya Signet Gruul Signet Talisman of Conviction Talisman of Unity Talisman of Impulse Fellwar Stone This should be easy to replace the ramp packaging you already have. Look to cut cards like Explosive Vegetation, Chromatic Lantern, Obelisk of Naya, etc.
Creatures - Prioritizing 3CMC or less and upping your creature count to closer to 30! Think about adding creatures that fullfill multiple roles and allow you to run less other stuff. Qasali Pridemage is a great example cause it can pump a swinger +1/+1 as well as remove a pesky enchant or artifact.
Cheap Utility Kitties- Adorned Pouncer Brimaz, King of Oreskos Bronzehide Lion Initiate's Companion King of the Pride Leonin Relic-Warder Oreskos Explorer Pride Sovereign Qasali Ambusher I like the returners you have for multiple cast triggers too! Can get stupid with Aluren... Whitemane Lion Temur Sabertooth Fleetfoot Panther ? Snow Hound
Protection/Return - Build a huge board and keep it protected! Unbreakable Formation Rootborn Defenses Heroic Intervention Teferi's Protection Asceticism Marshal's Anthem Kindred Boon Akroma's Will Flawless Maneuver
Draw(ish) - The cheaper the cards in hand the more you gonna empty and wanna draw! Skullclamp Colossal Majesty Elemental Bond Beast Whisperer Fecundity Garruk's Uprising Descendants' Path Realmwalker Hunter's Insight Snake Umbra Lifecrafter's Bestiary Mentor of the Meek Guardian Project Return of the Wildspeaker Shamanic Revelation Slate of Ancestry Collective Unconscious Camaraderie
General good cards for Cat/Dog: Maskwood Nexus Mirror Entity Crib Swap Felidar Retreat Basilisk Collar Thousand-Year Elixir Rings of Brighthearth Seht's Tiger Shields of Velis Vel Naya Charm Kindred Summons Volatile Claws Beastmaster Ascension Titanic Ultimatum Hour of Reckoning Triumph of the Hordes Finale of Devastation Idyllic Tutor Winds of Abandon Lightning Greaves (secret lair dog art!) Coat of Arms Swiftfoot Boots Impact Tremors Rhythm of the Wild Aura Shards Shared Animosity Mirari's Wake Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip Any Cheap Changelings really...

I use Impassioned Orator in my MTG Arena Lifegain deck, as well as Daxos, Blessed by the Sun that you also are already running. Depending on how this deck plays (I've not tested it) you might want another creature with a similar effect.
Also, I've found that Sacred Cat is quite good synergy for Daxos in particular, since you can get 2 casts and 2 deaths out of each one you include (total of 4 lifegain triggers from Daxos, 2 from Orator).
Speaker of the Heavens seems like he'd be a solid addition here, and
Finally Light of Hope can be useful for getting to your activation count on Resplendent Angel, and it's got added utility as well for some enchantment hate and potential to save a creature from something like Shock tipping over the last damage to kill it off.

Okay. I've taken all of your advice to mind, and the reason why I have 3x Ajani's Pridemate is because I have 1x Brimaz, King of Oreskos, which I don't know if I need it or not. I have 2x Lurrus of the Dream-Den as I have a bunch of 2 and 1 drops, which are Ajani's Pridemate, Adorned Pouncer, Watchers of the Dead, Sacred Cat, and Fleecemane Lion. But if Ajani's Pridemate has counters on it, would reviving it from the graveyard keep those counters? If so, then that would be awesome. I got rid of Bronzehide Lion as it is kind of expensive to make a single creature indestructible for a turn, and added 1x Fleecemane Lion instead. I don't plan on getting rid of Blessed Alliance since if I have 2x Pride Sovereign, I can untap both of them, and if I am fighting a large monster that is attacking, I can use Blessed Alliance to sacrifice it, especially if I can't get rid of it with Selesnya Charm, such as a indestructible 4 P/T.

Also, I don't really like Nylea's Emissary. I'd cut that for Sacred Cat maybe, it has a sweet sinergy with Ajani's Pridemate.
Anyway, cool deck, hope your wife enjoys playing it. (:

You could Settle the Wreckage yourself if you have a few Sacred Cat lurking around. Although, it would be very difficult to accomplish, not to mention the mana curve. Man! i wish that they re-introduced Path to Exile! That besides the former card is one of the few white ramp cards! I also recommend Oketra's Monument, as that is a ramp card.
