** In general, pretty much any small wild feline can be mistaken for their domestic counterparts. The worst offenders of mistaken identity are [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/African_wildcat African wildcats]] and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_wildcat European Wildcats]], the latter made worse by frequently interbreeding with feral stock as well being the cats' early ancestors before domestication.

Whether they're aliens that only ''look'' like house pets, or actual pets modified via genetic engineering, he never does find out.
