We have narrations in Mustadrak al-Wasaa'il (2:484) from the Prophet (SAWA) that the spirits of the believers come back on Fridays near their homes and every one from them will call him family members who are alive: O my family, O my children, O my father, O my mother, O my relatives; have a sympathy on me, may Allah have sympathy on you....

أرواح المؤمنين ليلة الجمعة
2525 / 24 وقال (صلى الله عليه وآله): " ان أرواح المؤمنين تأتي كل جمعة إلى السماء الدنيا بحذاء دورهم وبيوتهم ينادي كل واحد منهم بصوت حزين باكين: يا أهلي، ويا ولدي، ويا أبي، ويا أمي وأقربائي اعطفوا علينا يرحمكم الله بالذي كان في أيدينا والويل والحساب علينا والمنفعة لغيرنا وينادي كل واحد منهم إلى أقربائه: اعطفوا علينا بدرهم أو برغيف أو بكسوة يكسوكم الله من لباس الجنة "، ثم بكى النبي (صلى الله عليه وآله) وبكينا معه، فلم يستطع النبي (صلى الله عليه وآله) أن يتكلم من كثرة بكائه، ثم قال: " أولئك إخوانكم في الدين، فصاروا ترابا رميما، بعد السرور والنعيم فينادون بالويل والثبور على أنفسهم يقولون: يا ويلنا لو أنفقنا ما كان في أيدينا في طاعة الله ورضائه ما كنا نحتاج إليكم فيرجعون بحسرة وندامة، وينادون: أسرعوا صدقة الأموات ".

If she is spraying (urinating) on you/your clothing, and you have cat urine on yourself or your clothes, you should wash out the urine before praying. If not, it's not a big deal, but it might be annoying.

Yes it is allowed to have a cat and touch her. Praying Namaz needs your body and cloth clean from the hair of can or any animal which is not permissible to eat. Ayatullah Sistani allows few hairs.

If you need to buy a house for livening in it and not for investment, and you have legally and islamically entered in the purchase agreement but the completion (full payment) was after your date of Khums, then the amount of the completion of the purchase is not under your free ownership because you have a binging agreement to pay. This makes that amount out of Khums calculations of that year because it was already committed for buying a house to live in.

I have not seen any one who claims that Imam Ali's house water is bitter. Nevertheless, even if some claims that, it does not harm the sacred status of the place. The location of the house is near the river of Furat. Sometimes the water level in the river is high and sometimes it is low or even very low. That can be a possible reason of change in the taste of the water. It is worth mentioning that the house was never owned by Imam Ali (AS) but by his nephew (Jo'dah ibn Hubairah جعدة بن هبيرة)and Imam Ali (AS) was just a temporary tenant in that house.

There would not be any shar'i problem with changing places, as long as there is no intention in desecrating the sanctity of this holy time of mourning. 

It would be advisable, if it is possible, to postpone until after Ashura, and to continue to allocate time for your 'azaa` and dedication in mourning for Imam Husain (a.s.). 

With prayers for your success.

The attack on the house of Fatima Zahra (AS) has been admitted by leading Sunni leaders including Abu Bakr himself who openly said when he was about to die that I wish that I did not attack the house of Fatima even if it was a center  of war against me.
