Posting this Cats that don't suck list to research later, as MegaMatt13 commented, Pride Sovereign is a little weak, plus I find that 24 cats is a little short, although I've won games without playing a cat Stonehewer Giant + Puresteel Paladin + Grafted Exoskeleton.
I excluded many aggro cats because I feel that's not the right way to win in a multi-player format.
I'm sure I've missed some cats. I also have added some cats that do suck, but evaluating combos with them.
Adorned Pouncer, Ajani's Pridemate, Ajani's Sunstriker, Felidar Cub, Fleecemane Lion, Hungry Lynx, Initiate's Companion, Leonin Arbiter, Leonin Relic-Warder, Leonin Shikari, Lost Leonin, Metallic Mimic, Qasali Pridemage, Scrounging Bandar, Sunspear Shikari, Whitemane Lion
Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Fleetfoot Panther, Kemba, Kha Regent, Mirri, Cat Warrior, Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist, Mirror Entity, Pride Sovereign, Prowling Serpopard, Qasali Ambusher, Skyhunter Skirmisher, Stalking Leonin
Please recommend any cats i've missed!

Hey, just an idea but adding cards with explore form Ixalan could be helpful or potentially really good in this. Cards like Emperor's Vanguard and especially Deadeye Tracker due to his grave yard hate, can potentially be good because you either get the +1+1 counters and kind of scry or draw a land.
Possibly add Scrounging Bandar

Cards I am thinking about adding:
Ajani, Caller of the Pride
Ajani, Mentor of Heroes
Ajani, Valiant Protector
Nahiri, the Lithomancer
Oath of Ajani
Waiting in the Weeds
Secure the Wastes
Masterwork of Ingenuity
Green Sun's Zenith
Open the Armory
Let me know what you think??
I am going for a lot of creatures and equipping creatures to make them huge!!
Still need to look into more artifacts, enchantment, sorcery, and instant cards to put in.
Also need help with lands!!!

A couple of suggestions of cats you could add:Prowling Serpopard to deal with control decks; Aetherstream Leopard + Riparian Tiger to better exploit charge counters; Scrounging Bandar early game creature that can help out your bigger cats late game; Scythe Leopard early game creatures; Felidar Cub can serve as artifact removal or just attack; Felidar Sovereign also a potential win condition
Some instants you could add:Acrobatic Maneuver + Eerie Interlude + Long Road Home blink a cat to avoid damage or to re-trigger Regal Caracal; Appetite for the Unnatural + Decommission makes great enchantment or artifact removal; Commencement of Festivities + Encircling Fissure to stall longer; Gift of Strength + Highspire Infusion + Mighty Leap + Shed Weakness + Swell of Growth for buffing; Gideon's Reproach + Immolating Glare for potentially cheap removal; Life Goes On is really cheap life gain and can combo with Felidar Sovereign; Lifecrafter's Gift can combo with Metallic Mimic; Pulse of Murasa is a generally good card; Prepare / Fight + Tenacity for a smack down end game
Some sorceries:Appeal / Authority + Driven / Despair + Engineered Might + Larger Than Life + Ondu Rising + Overcome for more end game smack down; Approach of the Second Sun could be a win condition if you want, especially if you're stalling; Attune with Aether for lands and energy; Chaplain's Blessing for extra life and to combo with Felidar Sovereign; Collective Effort has a variety of good uses; Dubious Challenge would work well if you get more high cost creatures; Earthen Arms + Incremental Growth for a permanent buff; Mouth / Feed for a creature and card draws; Not Forgotten to either fetch from graveyard or remove from graveyard;
Finally, a few enchantments:Cartouche of Strength + Cartouche of Solidarity + Gryff's Boon + Conviction + Iona's Blessing major creature buffs, Call for Unity + Trial of Solidarity end game smack down, Always Watching make all your non token cats stronger; Authority of the Consuls to punish your opponent and limit his blockers; Bonds of Mortality potentially add to deal with hexproof and indestructible; Bound by Moonsilver removal that can move; Durable Handicraft + Oath of Ajani + Retreat to Kazandu adds more +1/+1 counters; Overwhelming Splendor + Sandwurm Convergence wind condition; Gift of Paradise extra life and mana;
Of course, this is far more cards then you could have in your deck, so you'll need to mix and match. I really recommend Felidar Sovereign and some heal cards like Life Goes On, as this makes a potentially very easy win con. I also think you should try to exploit getting +1/+1 counters more, since green and white are perfect for that. Lots of potential cards for cat decks, I wish you luck finding a good selection.

Just noticed that the Rampager was over $1! Scrounging Bandar is another option, that you could strategically trigger to give Revolt while making your critters bigger, and late-game could provide a Monument trigger.
Best of luck! Hit me up if I can do anything else to help!

Ghosty Thank you for your comment and advice. Even if I had to play without Attune with Aether I would still play Longtusk Cub. This card is amazing, it is a cat so it fits the theme and with every attack on opponent it gets stronger. Always Watching Blessed Alliance are both good cards but they are not rotation proof.

Energy synergy is very poor in this deck. The only -related cards are Attune with Aether and Longtusk Cub.I'd suggest to cut them in favor of mainboarded Blossoming Defense and (more probably) Heroic Intervention which perform extremely nice. IMHO other nice utility cards to think of are Always Watching and Blessed Alliance
As per sideboard I'd consider Felidar Cub
