Spot was a cat owned by the android Data.

Data chose to have a pet as part of his efforts to become more Human and despite not having emotions until 2371 Data always had a great deal of affection for her, developing no less than 221 different feline supplements to satisfy Spot's dietary requirements (TNG episode: "Data's Day").

Spot exhibits a similar amount of attachment to Data but is less fond of the rest of the USS Enterprise-D's crew, after having being cared for by quite a variety of Data's friends. William T. Riker once agreed to take care of Spot, which ended abruptly when Spot scratched him. After treating the deep scratches that Spot gave Riker, Beverly Crusher then agreed to take care of the cat, and Commander Riker suggested that she take a phaser along. When Geordi La Forge took Spot in briefly to see what having a cat would be like, Spot wrecked his quarters before hiding under La Forge's bed. Worf once agreed to take care of Spot, but found himself to be allergic to cats and sneezed on Spot. The only other person Spot really seemed to get along with was Reginald Barclay (who later got a Cat of his own). (TNG episodes: "Timescape", "Force of Nature", and "Genesis").

In 2370, Spot became pregnant, sired by any one of the Enterprise's twelve male cats and eventually gave birth to five kittens. During the last days of her pregnancy, a synthetic T-cell was causing the crew of the Enterprise to de-evolve. Spot was also affected, and was transformed into a lizard just as she was giving birth to her kittens. The kittens were not affected by the disease, and when discovered by Captain Jean-Luc Picard and Data, the pair realized that they had a potential method of reversing the effects of the T-cell virus. Data was able to use amniotic fluid from the pregnant Alyssa Ogawa to create a retrovirus to eliminate the T-cell virus and return the crew to normal, including Spot. (TNG episode: "Genesis")

In 2371, Spot survived the Enterprise's crash landing onto Veridian III and upon her discovery, Data, recently installed with an emotion chip, was overjoyed. (TNG movie: Generations).

The two both transferred to the new USS Enterprise-E upon its launch in 2372. In 2379, Data sacrificed himself to save the Enterprise and her crew. (TNG movie: Nemesis).

Following Data's death, ownership of Spot fell to Commander Worf, who had recently returned to the Enterprise. Spot and Worf did not get along at first, but Worf soon came to see the feline as a proud warrior who sees what she wants and takes it. (TNG - A Time To... novel: A Time for War, A Time for Peace; TTN novel: Orion's Hounds)

Spot was a subject during Data's experiments with producing paintings, including a large canvas with a stylized image of Spot that Data displayed in his ready room during his command of the USS Enterprise-E. (ST - Countdown comic: "Countdown, Number Two")

From Muppet Wiki

Spot is a pig that lives inside Oscar's trash can.

He appeared on Sesame Street in Episode 2073, where he was played by a live pig.

Spot later became an unseen character for several years. Although not featured on screen, in Episode 3782 Spot was said to be lamenting the absence of fellow-pet Slimey (who went to the moon); and he was heard using a jackhammer to help get Curly Bear to take her nap in Episode 4078.

Spot finally re-appeared on camera over 20 years later (this time as a Muppet), appearing in Episode 4178 where he received a mud bath from Mike Rowe.
