I know this may seem like a dumb question, but for my class I am learning about forensic laws and we are doing a mock trial on Tom and Jerry. So, can anyone tell me who lived in the house first and what episode it was in?

From what I can find, and I haven't look around much, it looks like Tom (Jasper) is the house cat, and Jerry (Jinx) is the mouse that lives in the wall (obvious info). A woman (his owner) is shown in the episode and threatened to kick Tom out for good for breaking stuff (of course Jerry pulls one of the typical "I'll purposely break something or threaten to break something to control Tom).

As for which one was first, I'm not sure. I'm willing to believe it was Tom, as he did live there and have an owner, whereas Jerry was just a mouse with a hole in the wall that he probably made after Tom started living there.

It doean't matter. The house was more than likely owned by some person before Jerry came along and sold to a new owner. Tom is the owner's guest and Jerry does not have permission to live their. Jerry is basically a squater and I'd take a look at squater laws to see how they should be applied in thia case.
