Cats are not pets everywhere - they may be "working cats" that need to work (catch mice, keep rats away) in return for shelter. The same goes for other animals that in one culture may be "pets" but in another "food" or "worker" (think of dogs).

I have not seen the picture of this cat, so I don't know what particular cultural aspects were associated with the picture, but regarding all cats as "domestic pets" and banning images of them for that reason alone is too simplistic.
