Several of the "Where" question translations in Pets 2 suggest "Càit a bheil" as an alternate answer (without the e, and no apostrophe for the missing letter). But when I tried it myself to save typing, I found that it was sometimes flagged as a typo. Is the no-e variant OK? Is one preferable over the other? Is the inconsistency in what is accepted across different exercises just an accident?

Apparently both Càite and Càit are acceptable, with Càit being the more current spelling. I've seen a post from a moderator that said they were changing to the newer spelling, but it would be awhile before all the updates are in place.
