It must be a cat, mustn't/isn't it?

Which tag should I use? If neither, what is the correct tag?

Thanks.

    Karen,
    As gentlegreen indicated with the example - you can only use the tag "isn't" if the previous verb was "is". The general rule is that the tag must use the same verb as the assertion.
