A: They do not let him "have" a cat is correct. "Has" in that sentence is wrong.

"He HAS a cat"

"He can't HAVE a cat"

"He is not allowed to HAVE a cat"

"Jon HAD a cat" (past tense)

"He was not allowed to HAVE a cat" (past tense)

It seems HAVE is the potential form. And has is the present tense and had is the past tense.

something that they worried about. does this sound natural?
A: @jokifreek "Them" refers to "cat lovers" both times.

It looks like I was close with the meaning! I understand that one better. To edit it a bit more:

"Cat lovers may not be as active as dog lovers, but they are more adventurous. Many cat lovers are passionate about their interests."

You wouldn't say they are challengers, but if you want to use that word:

"Cat lovers may not be as active as dog lovers, but they love a good challenge. Many cat lovers are passionate about their interests."

Also!

"Passionate about their interests" = passionate about things other than cats too, like golf, knitting, coin collecting, chess.

"Passionate about their interest" = their interest is cats.

Q: A cat of mine died which had been keeping for 16years. does this sound natural?
A: "My 16 year old cat died" or "My cat died at 16 years old". You would use the first one if it was somewhat recent. But if it isn't recent, the second one sounds more natural.

"Had been keeping for 16 years" doesn't make sense. You would say "Had been living for 16 years", but even that sounds unnatural.
