The Cat’s Mother?

Why is it:

Who is she? The cat’s mother?

But never:

Who is he? The cat’s father?

Your ideas are welcome.

    She refers to a “she cat” a male cat is called a Tom, so you would have to say; “who is Tom the cats father?”
    Not really relevant to pronouns but could be used if you were called Harry and someone kept referring to you as Tom.
