    I'm not a teacher nor a native speaker

    You might also say 'You have got a cat, haven't you?'

    Re: doesn't he or does he?

    bhaisahab, I hope you don't want to say that the other answers are wrong.
    We've already discussed the topic "Have + question" and it seemed in BrE you don't need to use "Do + have" in such questions.
    However, it's not wrong to use it.

    So I also agree with eddy's answers.

    Cheers!

    Re: doesn't he or does he?

    Yes, in my opinion they are wrong. This would be correct, "You do have a cat, don't you?"

    Re: doesn't he or does he?

    I see it this way:
    3-I have given you the book, haven't I (given you the book)?
    4-You have a cat, don't you (have a cat)?
    5-The bus is coming, isn't it (coming)?


    I thought you had a cat.
    Don't you have a cat?

    Would you really ask someone, "Haven't you a cat?"
    I wouldn't...


    Cheers!

    Don't you have a cat?

    I wouldn't... In AmE, you probably wouldn't hear this. You would hear, however, "You have a cat, haven't you?"


    Cheers!
    While bhai's responses are undoubtedly correct, eddy's responses, as modified by Verona, are the ones more frequently heard in AmE.
