Can Nuclear Weapons Kill Xenomorphs?

Can Nuclear Weapons Actually Kill Xenomorphs? Is it, in fact, the only way to be sure? It seems like they can handle a lot of physical battering, which makes me wonder if nuking the site from orbit in Aliens would ACTUALLY have killed them. If you are answering this question, please support any assertions by citing some part of the Alien canon; I have no use for whimsical uninformed opinions here; I'm a very busy person.

Why do we have cats AND Melmacians have cats?

In any of the Alf media (the live action sitcom, the cartoon, or any supplementary materials), is it ever explained how cats have come to be on both Melmac and Earth? Here, it says that it is unknown if Melmac cats and Earth cats are even the same species (presumably they coud be doing a kind of Allosaurus/T-Rex convergent-evolution thing), but perhaps someone out there with greater Alf knowledge can shed more light on this.

What do cats do when the Greys come for the humans?

Among narratives about visitations by the "Grey" aliens, are there any that talk about what cats do during the alien encounter? Do they just chill all cool-style? Do they FREAK OUT. Do they meow a lot or do they hiss or do they go hide someplace? Do they even try to bite the aliens (would be v. brave, imo). For the purposes of this question, let's allow both ostensibly fictional narratives and ostensibly real ones.
