A cat was a type of predatory and usually small feline mammal. Cats came in a variety of colours and shapes and were commonly domesticated as pets. (PROSE: Human Nature)

The Tenth Doctor once claimed the cats on Earth weren't native to the planet, but were aliens. Rather than the prosaic names their human "owners" tended to give them, their actual names were much grander like "Great Hunter Grimalkin Greycoat Lionheart". Donna believed he was pulling her leg. (COMIC: Autopia)

Cats on Earth were extinct by the year 2157. (PROSE: Lucifer Rising)

Cats in Earth culture Edit
