According to canon, specifically Ode to Spot, the housecat's taxonomic nomenclature is felis catus.AyalaofBorg 10:26, 31 December 2006 (UTC)


The Klingons had a animal that is similar to a cat, called a "Targ". 01:15, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

Actually, the Targ is similar to that of a pig/dog rather than a cat. ;) - Enzo Aquarius 02:24, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
Actually, you are both right. Their appearance is that of a pig/dog, but they are referred to as similar to a cat. From "Where No One Has Gone Before" when Worf sees his pet Targ:
WORF: "From home, my pet... ... but when I was a child!"
TASHA: "You're telling us that's a kittycat?"
WORF: "Yes, I suppose that's what you..."
So yes, similar to a cat. --OuroborosCobra talk 02:34, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
Well, The Klingons have the word vIghro', which refers to an animal on Qo'noS that is described as similar to a cat. Those who speak Klingon in the "real world" often use this word to refer to all feline animals for lack of a better known word in the language. I suppose that the vIghro' would be better suited here than the targ, since the targ was only like a cat as it was kept as a pet. However, a "vIghro'" has never been seen or refered to on screen as far as I know, so I'm not sure of whether or not it needs mentioning in this article (it is cannon in the Klingon tongue regardless, however).--El Payaso Malo70.128.46.184 04:47, 6 July 2009 (UTC)


Cats generally have a strong dislike for Dogs which tend to enjoy chasing them up Trees. (At least on Earth they do anyway.)

Changed titles to remove "sentient" and use intelligent instead as those referenced were all sentient. --Neo.trident (talk) 09:50, June 20, 2014 (UTC)
