* Dolphins and mice from ''Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy''. However, dolphins are never mentioned to be aliens, but rather just much, much smarter than humans. It's ''white mice'' who are the aliens, granted they're HumanAliens in their own plane of existence.
** In ''The Restaurant at the End of the Universe'', we learn that ''Humans'' are in fact aliens as well, descended from telephone-disinfectors, advertising executives, and other "useless" people from the planet Golgafrincham.
** According to [[Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy the novels]], it would seem that dolphins are the only native sapient life on Earth.
*** Neanderthals might count as well, or they might just be biological robotic components of the computer designed to find the Ultimate Question. In any case, they all died out after the telephone-sanitisers arrived.



* The cats in the book ''Star Ka'at'' and its sequels. Earth cats were colonists from a planet of sentient cats; when Earth got in danger, the advanced alien cats went to retrieve the Earth cats.
** Also the trope is played with when it's revealed partway through the story that some of the Earth cats have degenerated to the point where they can no longer respond to the telepathic summons, and it's implied that these degenerate cats may even now '''be''' the mere animals humans thought them to be.



* In one ''ComicStrip/{{Mandrake The Magician}}'' story, Narda has a dream (OrWasItADream?) about finding out that cats and dogs are two warring alien species; the ones on Earth were spaceshipwrecked here, and have exploited the dumb native humans (specifically, cats the females, dogs the males) to survive in comfort without their technology.
* Franchise/CthulhuMythos: The Cats of Earth's Dream Lands are notable for their intelligence, grace, ability to leap across the interstellar void and their ongoing war with the Cats of Saturn.



* "In the Doghouse", by Creator/OrsonScottCard and Jay A. Davis (collected in ''Literature/MapsInAMirror''): Dogs one day start speaking human languages and announcing that they're aliens -- and nobody takes them seriously; even when they start demonstrating their advanced intelligence by solving complicated math problems and the like, everybody shrugs it off as just a cute trick.

There's an animal on this planet that's always looked harmless - rabbits or mice or puppies, it doesn't matter. One day, you'll be walking your puppy [[FluffyTheTerrible Mr. Flufferkins]] along and suddenly he'll look up at you and say, "Thank you, human, for this relaxing walk and all those times you've scratched my chin, but I'm afraid the [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Nogov 10th Brigade]] is coming here in [[TwoOfYourEarthMinutes five of your Earth minutes]] to [[EarthShatteringKaboom get rid]] of this [[InsignificantLittleBluePlanet small blue planet]] and replace it with a transgalactic outlet mall. However, this is good news: [[BadNewsIrrelevantNews you can spend your last five minutes secure in the knowledge that everyone will be getting cheaper outlets soon]]. Well, except the human race, of course, but these things have to be built. Goodbye." And then he disappears before your very eyes, along with every other puppy on the face of the Earth.

Compare TheDogIsAnAlien. If the alien looks like an animal but isn't on Earth posing as one, it's probably an IntelligentGerbil.

* A fantasy example from ''Literature/{{Discworld}}''. Nobody on the Disc suspects that [[spoiler: dragons]] come from the moon until they actually get there and find a ton of them romping around. [[spoiler: They're still dumb animals, although slightly healthier in their native environment. Intelligent dragons are, of course, [[YourMindMakesItReal imaginary]].]]
