According to one of my Psych lecturers (psych 109 at Auckland University) who has done work on hemispheric laterelisation on a number of animals, the vast majority show a preference for using their right paw/flipper/foot as the dominant appendage, so according to him this would make most cats right pawed - however, the skew towards right ?edness isn't as biased as it is in Humans, so a larger majority of animals will be "southpaws" than their human friends.
I'll see if I can dig out the file from the lecture as I took the paper last semester.
