There's no problem in beating chest hard. 

For tatbir, different marja has different opinions. You should check with the marja you follow. Sayed Ali Sistani does not have any fatwa.

We pray towards the Kaaba. Is that shirk? No. In fact, it is better to face the Kaaba when supplicating to Allah.  Please think deeply about your questions and only ask the question if it is

Everyone should have enough money to have some disposable income. And there’s nothing wrong with it. Being wealthy isn’t wrong—it’s what you do with it.

Really? Who was that Holy guy

I don’t want to talk about him because I respect him, but still I was shocked when I saw that video. Many of His supporters are wired.

No you can not rub the turbah on to your hands. You must place the entire of both hands on to something simultaneously.

I do not see why you keep insisting on using a turbah for tayammum. Just go to some soil and perform it there.

can we touch a cat which eats non halal meat (not pork), and non halal meat is najis, so how can we have the cat in the house if its mouth is najis and it cleans itself with its mouth, and that makes its body impure.

When the ayn najasah that is on the cat is removed, the cat becomes pure. Washing is not necessary. So if the mouth becomes impure and the cat cleans itself it becomes pure.

Ruling 215. If the body of an animal becomes impure with an intrinsic impurity like blood, or with something that has become impure, such as impure water, in the event that the impurity is removed, the body of the animal becomes pure. Similarly, the inner parts of a human body – like the inside of the mouth, nose, and ears – become impure by coming into contact with an external impurity, but by removing the impurity they become pure. As for internal impurity – such as blood that comes out from in between the teeth – this does not cause the inner parts of the body to become impure. Similarly, if an external object inside the body comes into contact with internal impurity, it does not make the object impure. Therefore, if dentures come into contact with blood that comes out from in between the teeth, it is not necessary to wash the dentures; but if the dentures come into contact with impure food, it is necessary to wash them.

Like in Surah An-Nahl, the bee is taught what it is suppose to do. Why not other animals? Animals know what is not good for them to eat.

Example. My father farmed and had hogs. Those hogs will eat about everything. Chew off a valve stem from a tire. Tail biting. Cow paddies. Grass. Each other.  BUT, they will never touch a Jimson weed -and a few other things. They know what not to eat.

Yet on what basis is halal applied to animals?

Halal meat for animals don't exist. Because such things should be applying to creatures that aren't gonna be going to either Heaven or Hell. You should be able to buy it. 

There will be animals in Heaven

2083. Some transactions are invalid but not forbidden, and some are forbidden but not invalid, and some are both: forbidden and invalid. Of these, the main ones are: 1. Some of the essentially najis items, such as intoxicating drinks and pigs, the selling and buying of which is both forbidden and invalid. The same goes for najis carcasses and non-hunting dogs, selling and buying of which is invalid, and based on obligatory precaution forbidden as well.

Ruling 2063. There are many unlawful transactions; some of them are as follows:

1. buying and selling intoxicating drinks, non-hunting dogs, pigs, and – based on obligatory precaution (al-iḥtiyāṭ al-wājib) – impure (najis) carcasses. Apart from these, buying and selling an intrinsic impurity (ʿayn al-najāsah) is permitted if it is for some significant and lawful use, such as buying and selling impure animal waste for use as fertilisers;

CONTEXT

None of these rulings even take into consideration buying food for your pet. Just the purchasing of those goods. Sure you can infer that somehow if buying is bad, than that's it, but problem is contexts are very important, often you find rulings change completely when given a scenario. 

In any case, if OP is worried about it, I would suggest sending an email about your situation. Or, if you have the time, make food for your cat with your halal meat. But yeah, appreciate the rulings, but can't take it as Gospel because they clearly aren't responding to the entire question.

156. A Muslim is allowed to eat any food made by a person whose faith and religion is not known to him, no matter whether that person touched it with wetness or did not touch it, provided that he does not know or is not sure that the food consists of what is forbidden to him. As for meat, fat, and their extracts, there are specific rules that will come later on. t is not necessary for the Muslim to question the person who prepared the food about his beliefs or disbeliefs, or whether or not he had touched the food, even if that inquiry is very convenient and natural for one who wants to ask. In short, all kinds of food with the exception of meat, fat, and their extracts are permissible for a Muslim, even if he doubts that it might contain something which is forbidden for him to eat or doubts that its cook —whosoever he may be— had touched it with wetness. (See the question-answer section below.)

157. Just as it is not obligatory on him to inquire about the ingredients of such food to ensure that it is free from what is forbidden to him, it is not obligatory on him to ask the cook whether he touched it while preparing the food or after it.

158. All kinds of packed food with the exception of meat, fat and their extracts, are permissible for a Muslim, even if he doubts that its ingredients might contain what is forbidden for him or even if he doubts that the cook —whosoever he may be— had touched it with wetness. It is not obligatory on him to inquire about its ingredients to ensure that it does not contain anything that is forbidden to him.

According to this, checking ingredients is not obligatory even if one is able to do so.

So if a product contains something thats from an animal but that person does not know if its from a pig, if it could be, such as a rennet. That person does not need to check ? 

If you are sure that there is a meat product then you must be sure that the meat is halal.
