You've got Avacyn's Pilgrim, which is good fixing and ramp, and Sol Ring, so that's a good start. Some more good 1-2 mana ramp would speed you up: Selesnya Signet, Wild Growth, Fertile Ground, etc.

Secondly, more lands. I steer clear of lands that ETB tapped, and I never slot in less than 36 lands. Oracle of Mul Daya would be pure fire if you increased your land count. Maybe even as high as 38+.

If you replace the tap lands with basics and Evolving Wilds/Terramorphic Expanse, you open up a couple possibilities: 1) Land Tax, 2) Karametra + Whitemane Lion/Kor Skyfisher combo, and 3) Ramunap Excavator + Wayward Swordtooth fetchland loop (also works with Oracle).

Lastly, take a hard look at your card draw. I didn't look real hard, but I didn't notice much. Rishkar's Expertise, Soul's Majesty, Huatli, Radiant Champion, maybe Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury since she's also more ramp.... Beast Whisperer, Colossal Majesty, and Drumhunter all have a similar vibe to Elemental Bond.

Best of luck!

Looks like a fun casual deck. I have a few suggestions that keep the deck casual but still let you pull out some great plays. Lotus Cobra is one of the best landfall creatures you can run. Amulet of Vigor lets your lands from karametra come in untapped and combos really well with Whitemane Lion combos; it also pulls out every land with Lotus Cobra + Whitemane Lion. Destiny Spinner protects your creatures and enchantments while have a good active to boot. Lastly, Green Sun's Zenith and Finale of Devastation are strong tutors with Finale being a good finisher. I have a more competitive list if you want to check it out for some ideas: [Primer] Karametra's Bounce House.

Destiny Spinner is great in an enchantment and creature focused deck. Academy Rector would also be a strong addition- if you want sac outlets for it then Natural Order and Eldritch Evolution are great. Aluren is also incredibly powerful with Whitemane Lion/Fleetfoot Panther to get infinite creature casts for karametra triggers. If you go that route then there are plenty of ways to abuse the cast triggers like Oketra's Monument, Aetherflux Reservoir, etc.

I would go with Arahbo, Roar of the World and with a tactic of always having one or two cats on the field trying to hit people. Go tall. Alms Collector , Enlightened Ascetic , Kinjalli's Sunwing , Lost Leonin , Skyhunter Skirmisher , Stalking Leonin , Temur Sabertooth , Whitemane Lion , some ramp, removals, protection, a board wipe or two and some equipment. would take out Jareth, Leonine Titan because too much mana, Jazal Goldmane, Nacatl War-Pride , Qasali Slingers and Jedit Ojanen of Efrava for the same reason. Also cool are Heroic Intervention and Selesnya Charm. Stave Off has a cat on it.

Is Nissa, Voice of Zendikar really impactful aside from its Ultimate? And is that even realistic to reach?

No Generous Gift or Woodland Bellower?

Fleetfoot Panther seems like an auto-include along with Whitemane Lion and Kor Skyfisher.

Goretast on Churnin' Chulane

Great to see another Chulane player out there. I'm not sure what your budget is like or the power-level you're looking for, but Shrieking Drake / Whitemane Lion are MVPs for this commander. They can bounce themselves to allow for many triggers with Chulane. Cloudstone Curio is also essential and opens up many combos for the deck by allowing you to bounce your permanents (i.e. you can bounce tapped lands to put in new untapped ones with Chulane). Mana Breach also lets you combo your lands while horribly crippling your opponents. I have a primer made for a competitive deck, but you might find some cards you like for your build: [Primer] Chulane's Bounce House [cEDH].

Spirits on Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH

Used your suggestion (Felidar Guardian + Restoration Angel) but instead of Healer of the Pride went with The Great Henge. I'm not sure what it is I'm drawing into yet (mana and infect maybe, or infinite damage combo that is cmc9 wtf). Thinking of adding Aluren and Whitemane Lion which also work with The Great Henge. Wish Oketra's Monument was haste not vigilance, but no way to tutor artifacts so better to find enchantments or creatures that this works with.
