It will depend on the animal - the number of chromosomes varies from species to species. Somatic cells are non-sex cells. This means that in sexually reproducing animals, somatic cells usually have 2 pairs of chromosomes (they are called diploid cells). Human somatic cells have 46 (23 pairs of) chromosomes. Cat somatic cells have 38 (19 pairs of) chromosomes. Dogs have 78 (39 pairs of) chromosomes.

How do the number of chromosomes compare in gametes and somatic cells?

I will assume that you mean human cells. Somatic cells are diploid (2n), containing two sets of chromosomes, one of paternal, one of maternal origin. Gametes, on the other hand, are haploid (n), with a single set of chromosomes, ie. half as many as the somatic cell. Now, the haploid chromosome number (n) is characteristic of the species, and in humans this number happens to be 23. Therefore a human gamete has 23 chromosomes, and a human somatic cell 23 pairs, or 46 chromosomes.
