Bismillah, 

Asalamu Alaykom, 

This is permitted provided that no haram would be done. So for example, a Muslim may not go to a haram environment like a pub or club. Let us say the Muslim even goes to a normal restaurant but then his non-Muslims colleagues consume alcohol; he would not be permitted to sit on the same table as them in which alcohol is being drunk at. 

If however they go to a restaurant and there is no drinking alcohol on the same table, and the food is halal, then there is no issue and it is permitted inshallah. 

May Allah grant you success

You do not need to get rid of the cat. The bowl and all items are not Najis unless you have an evidence that it had wet Najis item in it. If you know that it is Najis, then just washing it with water will make it Taahir.

as salam alaikum

storing food as precaution during disasters in itself is allowed and it could be also praiseworthy if the intention is to share it with others in times of hardship. However different situations call for different ways of dealing; for example it wouldn't be correct to store extra-food for ourselves while others cannot afford, or barely afford, basic necessities. In such case we should try to give priority to the needy, kids and elders in difficulty and offer our help to them if and when needed.

With prayers for your success.

It depends on the oil and other materials used in cooking or preparing the food. If the oil is Taahir and oil and utensils are not used in preparing Najis food, then it is allowed.

Yes (as long as it is halal, and as long as you follow a scholar allowing food from Ahl al-Kitab). Keep in mind, in some cultures, it is common to cook and bake with alcohol especially during the holidays, so you may want to be sure there is no alcohol in the food.

Non Ahlul Kitab non Muslims are not Taahir. If they touch the food with wetness, it becomes Najis. We as Muslims are not allowed to eat Najis food.

Yes, it is allowed to stop consuming any food which you don't like if there is no big harm on your health by stopping it. Leaving any food does not allow you to claim it as Haraam or completely harmful. No one is allowed to claim any thing as Haraam, with out the authentic evidence from the Marja' of Taqleed.
