The cat (or domestic cat) is a small carnivorous mammal. It is valued by humans for its companionship and its ability to destroy vermin. A skilled predator, the cat is known to hunt over 1,000 species for food. Intelligent, the cat can be trained to obey simple commands, and has been known to teach itself to manipulate simple mechanisms.

The trinomial name of the domestic cat is Felis silvestris catus. Its closest predomesticated ancestor is believed to be the African wild, Felis silvestris lybica. Humans have developed several dozen breeds of cat, in a variety of colors. Some of which are the following:

1. Himalayan - The Himalayan, also called colourpoint Persian, is a breed of cat with extremely long, fluffy fur, and blue eyes and the points of a Siamese. Himalayan is the American term, while in Europe they are referred to as colourpoint Persians. The body of a Himalayan is white, but the points come in many different colors:blue, brown, lilac, chocolate, flame, red, and cream. These cats are sweet tempered, intelligent, social and good companions.

2. Maine Coon - United States is the country of origin. The Maine Coon is one of the largest breeds of domestic cat, known for its intelligence and playfulness as well as its distinctive physical appearance. The breed is one of the oldest natural breeds in North America and originated from New England, making it America's first indigenous show cat. Maine Coons are very large and energetic cats, sometimes weighing 11.3 kilograms (25 Ibs); the average weight is 6 to 9 kilograms (13-20 Ibs) for adult males and less (7-11 Ibs) for females. The most common color/pattern in the breed is brown with tabby markings.

Rats are various medium sized rodents and have an average life span of 2 to 3 years. Domestic rats differ from wild rats in many ways. They are calmer and less likely to bite. They can tolerate greater crowding. They breed earlier and produce more offsprings.

1. Luzon furry-tailed rat (Batomys granti)
This rat is from the cloud rat group. It feeds on fruits and leaves but unlike its closest relatives it lives mostly on the ground.

2. Cordillera striped earth-rat (Chrotomys whiteheadi)
There are striped earth-rats that occur in the mountains over most of Luzon Island, and on Mindoro and Sibuyan. This species lives in the Central Cordillera of Luzon. Like its relatives, this species feeds primarily on earthworms, which it finds by burrowing through the soil and thick layers of humus high in the mountains. This species is useful in controlling the alien earthworms that are damaging the famous rice terraces of Ifugao.
