[protege-owl] assign property value to a Thing individual(want to get inferred individuals)

I am not sure I am entirely following. But what you may be saying is  
that you don't see where to add a property value

     a:Spike is_pet_of a:Pete.

This is possible even though Protege does not create the form for  
a:Spike in the "Individual Editor".  If you look under the header for  
the "Individual Editor" portion of the Individuals tab, you will see  
at least four icons.  One of them will show the tool tip "Switch to  
Triples".  Click that.  Now you can add the property value by either  
clicking the icon with the tool tip "Create Object Property Value..."  
or "Add existing resource as a value".  I think that one of these is  
the item that  you want.
