Sounds like a trip to your library is in the near future.

I would recommend starting with an introductory textbook.  Try Pickles, N.O.
Introduction to the Physiology of Hearing.  That will give you a basic
understanding of the frequency ranges for humans and cats.  There is a
substantial amount of research done on the neurophysiology of the cat's
auditory system, if that is what you are interested in.
