Why do I have to put "cái" in front of it?

cái refer to things, while con (ie. một con mèo) refer to an animal

"Cái" is an example of a classifier. There is a discussion of how classifiers work in Vietnamese here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/17166436

This asks to translate "A mug" not "One mug", is it necessary to answer "Một cái ca" when asked to translate "A mug"?

This is a wrong translation. It translates to A mug NOT One mug.
