the words are the following

cat's / operated/this/My/ being/on/afternoon

I construct this sentence by this way

My cat's being operated on this afternoon.

I am not 100% sure this is correct and this kind of constructions seems strange to me, but that is the only option I could make up. Could you please take a look and provide second opinion.

Yes, that is correct. Alternatively, I could say "that's correct," because the apostrophe-s is a contraction for "is," just like "cat's" here is a contraction for "cat is." It's not formal, but it is correct.

My cat's being operated on this afternoon.

My cat is being operated on this afternoon.

You could also say "My cat is having an operation this afternoon," or "My cat is having surgery this afternoon."
