is it a female cat or the noun cat is female itself?

I was told that this is the word for a female cat. For a male cat (or unknown) would be: قطّ

is that the origin of the english word cat?

Yes as well as in many other languages.

Can't be taught old tricks.

The ق is usually replaced with a ء when speaking colloquially, right?

But I heard قطتك جديدة and that was deemed the correct response when I chose it from the word bank, which didn’t offer قطة as a choice.

Is the translation not: 'your cat is new'? Not 'a new cat'?
