Is "cael" specifically restricted to "have" in the sense of "take" or "get" (They are taking tea/They are getting tea) or could you say Dw i'n cael ci. "I have a dog"? I assume you can't, because in the "possessive" topic it only has structures such as Mae ci gyda fi, Mae gyda fi gi, Mae ci gynna i and Mae gynna i gi.
cael has several meanings - look at gweiadur.com for details - but the one here is as you say, 'having/getting', but not possession.
- dw i'n cael ci - I am getting a dog
- mae gen i gi, mae ci gyda fi - I have/own a dog
