:D No problem! Cats have some insane 1-drops!
Some more fun:

Hey, to start with, thanks for putting my Kithkin Tribal in wants, second off, I'd like to say you should put in Ajani's Pridemate because Soul Warden and Felidar Guardian doesn't win you the game, but an infinitely large creature will, also throwing in Soul's Attendant will help boost your health and chances of finding a combo piece.
I don't even know what Mirror Entity was used for, so it might have a point, but it to me seems useless.
Nacatl War-Pride is fun, but I don't see it being useful due to it being so expensive.
If you leave in red, then Ajani Vengeant might be better for you. It can hold the board for long enough for you to combo out.
If you put in Suture Priest and Soul's Attendant, then Serra Ascendant may be the way to go. You can even through in Felidar Sovereign for theme with Felidar Guardian and for victory, or any of the great cats below:
Brimaz, King of Oreskos (I use this in my soldier tribal deck)
You can find more, but this is just to head you in the right direction!

There's the new Cat Avatar coming about. He's a catlord and he's White/Green so you can run Pride Sovereign, Fleecemane Lion,Jedit Ojanen of Efrava, Loam Lion + whatever else comes out in the commander set. So maybe look at green cats for some additions too, plus just good green spells that would fit, especially with tokens and lifegain.

Yeah, there's actually a lot of creatures that can swing for 2 on turn 2. Just off the top of my head, Kird Ape, Loam Lion, Wild Nacatl, Goblin Guide, and Cerodon Yearling. I play in a pretty aggressive playgroup though, I doubt EDH players or Modern players run into these sorts of cards all that often.
And I loved Monstrosity, definitely one of my favorite mechanics. It doesn't tend to scale as high as Level Up, Figure of Destiny, or Warden of the First Tree, but I love the instant-speed activation and some of the specific cards they built with it. Splitting Slime is one of those cards I have a personal crush on, and try to work into every deck I can, and if I ever get into EDH, I'll have to build around Hythonia the Cruel.
Good read, man. :)

There are a lot of good cards here, but there's a lot of junk you could sweep out to make more room. First thing, assess your win conditons:
Brimaz, King of Oreskos: Massively strong card. Almost overpowered. He doesn't die to lightning bolt, and will probably make at least 1 cat token. Oh yeah, he's a 4/5 for 3. If he wasn't legendary you would need 4.
Regal Caracal: High cost, but carrying just two in the deck can't hurt.
Pride Sovereign: Hard to say if he would be strong in the deck or not. It really depends on how well your cats stick to the board.
Gavony Township: This card will pull the win out for you on many occasions. Turn your cats into a lethal army.
Ajani, Caller of the Pride: Mostly he is interesting for his final ability. If you drop 10 cats and you have a regal caracal down, that's a huge board power jump. In fact, he is MUCH better for this deck than the other Ajani. I would drop the other one and just have two of these.
Now for efficient cats:
Wild Nacatl: That's it. The most efficient cat for 1 mana.
Loam Lion: The second most efficient cat for 1 mana. If you don't want to include red for wild nacatl, then 4 of these is a must.
Fleecemane Lion A 3/3 for 2 is not as fast as wild nacatl, but you are playing more of a midrange strategy, so the monstrous effect can come in handy.
Qasali Pridemage: This guy is a decent size for 2 mana, and is secretly a removal spell. Very good.
Lastly, cards that are not doing you much good:
Longtusk Cub: Pretty much just worse than fleecemane lion. I mean sure it could sometimes get another +1/+1 counter, but so can fleecemane and then he's a 4/4.
Oketra the True: I don't think she's doing a lot for this deck other than being huge. That's not bad, but unless you are guaranteed to make her into a creature every time you play her I'd stay away from this non-cat card that makes more non cats for a huge cost.
Grizzled Leotau: Cats are aggressive. No time for a wall. Make room for more cats with 2 power or more.
Sandwurm Convergence: You often don't even reach 6 mana in modern unless you are playing control. Even if you DID play against control, an 8 mana spell will get countered for sure.
Ajani Unyielding: 6 mana planeswalkers are way too slow. Sure his abilities are nice but this isn't going to even touch the board most of the time, and when he does he is going to take a while to do anything.

Scythe Tiger seems really weak given that it cant be targeted by arahbo's first ability, cant be equipped and costs you a land it might be better to just play Loam Lion over it if you're looking for a one drop

Loam Lion is better then most 1-drops you use in this deck (it is basically a Kird Ape ). I would drop Scythe Tiger, at first he might seem like a good card, but saccing the land is a really high cost (It would have been better if he just cost 2, because you can keep the land in that situation, now it's just gone). Also, you play 22 land, and without any form of mana acceleration (Birds of Paradise, Noble Hierarch,...) and 3x a creature that destroys your own land, you will never be able to play a Regal Caracal.
