In that case, I would use something like this:

x = [['cat', 'NM123', 12], ['cat', 'NM234', 12], ['dog', 'NM56', 65]]

import collections
d = collections.OrderedDict()

for key, label, quant in x:
    if key in d:
        d[key][0] += ", " + label
        d[key] = [label, quant]

y = list(d.iteritems())
print y
