I have a cat named Wicket after the leader of the Ewoks. He is the smartest cat I've ever had and can open a door from the outside of the house by leaping straight up about 4 feet, hanging onto the handle and swinging his weight into the door to open it. He can open a few other doors too. He has certainly lived up to his name.
I used to have a guinea pig named Nero who did not have any Romulan qualities but it suited him.
