Gato ou lince


Explanation:
como a palavra nos é apresentada sem qualquer texto, deduz-se que se trate de um animal (o sentido de cat = lince, é mais nos EUA). Em gíria dos E.U.A. costumava usar-se também para referir uma mulher rancorosa, malévola.

cat = TAC


Explanation:
Cat can also mean cat-scan, medically speaking, in which case, in Portuguese, the translation is TAC.

This is just a possibility.
