I'm having trouble differentiating between Jeder and Jede... how can you figure that out by the sound or the context?

Jede = feminine, Jeder = maculine, Jedes = neuter

cat = feminine, therefore: jede Katze

How come when you use a suggested translation that is on the last the answer is wrong?

It can be stupid, I agree. But in this case I think it comes down to common sense. The suggested translations for Jede were Each, All, and Everyone. Neither "All cat" or "everyone cat" makes sense. So it's kinda obvious which "Jede" it is..

because words have a lot of meanings in other languages, when you translate you're not translating words, but texts, you always have to take the context into consideration to get it right

I know in this case jede is refers to each, but in what context would it translate to "all"?

Because that would be a different phrase. You wouldn't say 'each cats' but 'each cat'. If they had put jede Katzen then they would be looking for 'all cats'
