I didn't know your cat had a dog.

Hai! In that case, I think the Indonesian sentence could be "Kucing saya mengejar anjing kucing saya.", being "anjing kucing saya" the dog of my cat, and really very strange sentences in both Indonesian and English. But this is how Indonesian works. And also, "dia" is a pronoun only used for people. I think the Duolingo sentence is very clear with that. Of course, it is also very enjoyable. ;)

Selamat belajar! :)

I think "his" is referring to another person, rather than the cat. E.g. "My cat chases my brother's dog"
