* Cats became a extinct species [[spoiler: until near the end of the book]] in ''Literature/TheWorldAtTheEndOfTime'' when a fatal plage affected Newmanhome and nobody could make a cat to wear a gauze mask impregned with an awfully smelling fungicide -the cat that acknowledges no law but its own even if it dies for it.-

** In most Muslim countries cats are considered superior because they were the favorite animal of Muhammad, who owned several. They are considered ritually clean, and allowed to enter mosques. Dogs get a negative rap because many Muslim clerics believe they're suitable only for hunting, not as pets (they're often considered unclean). Many striped or tabby cats have three black streaks on their head, and there's a (though fairly obscure) Muslim legend that when Muhammad petted his favorite cat, three of his fingerprints stayed on her head and those of her descendants to mark their favored status. It's highly unlikely that all the cats with that marking are descended from one cat, but it's a good story.

* The fossil record as currently available suggests the reason there are so many more cat species than canine is that cats were driving canines extinct by virtue of being superior hunters, the exceptions usually being canines who formed packs, of course.

* You could make a case for Plagg from ''WesternAniamtion/MiraculousLadybug''- he's not a cat, but a cat-themed, um, "kwami", but he tends to just want to sit around eating [[TrademarkFavoriteFood camembert cheese]] all day, regardless of what Adrien tries to tell him. That is, until an [[MonsterOfTheWeek Akuma]] shows up, upon which Plagg becomes one half of his TransformationTrinket and undergoes a sort-of FusionDance with Adrien into his superhero identity, Chat Noir.

* ''Literature/TheCinderSpires'' (by the [[Creator/JimButcher same author]]), cats are fully sentient creatures who cohabit the Spires with humans. The chapters narrated by Rowl, [[WarriorPrince Prince of the Silent Paws clan]], show them to be incredibly arrogant and selfish, but nonetheless very brave, honourable (albeit with BlueAndOrangeMorality,) and capable of forming strong bonds with humans who earn their affection (though they usually find some way to justify their displays of affection to avoid acknowledging actual ''care'' for the lowly humans]].
