Do you think the Knight in Chess should be a Cat instead of a Horse?

i'm sure you can buy a set with cats instead of horses if that is what you are into. https://www.google.com/search?q=cat+chess+set&rlz=1C1CHFX_enUS506US506&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwixntiDyp_fAhUn74MKHaKgCukQ_AUIDygC&biw=1680&bih=939
without a good reason, no. The pieces in a Chess set are supposed to represent an medieval army. Cats weren't in armies.
No, a cat would just knock all the pieces off the board.
