A detective enters a building he never ventured before. He stops for a moment at the door of a 1st flat. He sees its scratched doormat. He knows immediately that a cat lives in this particular flat. But how?!

Perhaps he also saw the cat door.
 
Otherwise, perhaps he also saw the cat. Smiley

It is true that this riddle has one omitted part. However, both of your guesses are not it.  
 
Forget about the cat, as mobsters would say.

He sees the number on the door.  He already knew the owners had a cat, since he had researched them before coming to see them in person.

Time is of importance here, but consider only current time, that is to say, a few seconds the detective stood at the door.

Look at the door, alien. I mean man. I reckon humans are not the only chauvinists out there.

The door is see-through.

Well then perhaps the doorway is see through, because the door is open.

The riddle is shallow. 'A cat' happens to be a tenant who lives there. So one thing has nothing to do with the other. Oh well.

So you're saying A. Cat is written on the nameplate on the door?

Not necessarily. He's a bloke (a cat). So his name might as well be Johnny Appleseed. If I had said a bird rather than a cat then he'd be a she. I Tawt I Taw a Puddy Tat.
