Can all living things be classified?

Yes, they can. But sometimes it takes a lot of study to figure out the correct classification. Also, we haven't found all living things yet. Classification is now easier and better than it used to be, because we can sequence genes from a new organism and compare them with other known organisms, to see what the new animal is most closely related to.
