Cmdr. Data had a pet cat named Spot.

Where/how did he get it?

Memory Alpha's Spot explains that there were many cats on the Enterprise-D, so it probably wasn't produced in a replicator.

Did Data adopt a kitten from a litter born on the Enterprise and raise it, or adopt it from the Enterprise Animal Shelter, or...?

    I didn’t think it was possible to produce living matter in the replicators anyway. Only inanimate stuff like food or objects. Aug 28 at 3:48
