Cat Energy is one of the Upgradable Stats in the game, it is the limit of your playing time. When you play a level, your energy goes down. If you do not have enough energy, then you need to wait until the energy recharges.
Recharging Cat Energy
The energy recharges at rate 1 point per minute. Can be reduced by obtaining Time Machine treasures in story campaign for up to 30 seconds. Player is required to connect to internet at least once when playing for the day so the game can sync the time and calcuate how much energy a player should have gained correctly. If player have not done this at all for the day, a warning will appear above the energy count display to tell player about this and the energy will not recharge properly.
When a player completes a Main Story chapter, Story of Legends sub-chapters, or obtain a user rank reward, they are rewarded with 1 leadership which can be consumed to refill their energy. Prior to Version 8.2, doing that automatically refills cat energy instead. Refilling the cat energy using cat food (Costs 30) will give the player the maximum amount of energy, plus any energy leftover will be stored as an overflow amount which is used first (for example if your max cat energy is 600 and you have 150 energy and use 30 catfood to recover you will have 750 energy). When a player still has any overflow energy, the player will not gain any more energy until all overflow is used.

Players start off with 100 energy. Current highest energy is 950 (as of version 8.3).
Player can increase the maximum energy through multiple ways:
