I assume your cat is named for the famous, deceased painter and has nothing to do with a fragrance also named after the painter? The products and concepts are very different, so I doubt that trademark would have relevance. However, safety, safety, safety. Find another cool name for the cat, or even spell it differently.

According to Wikipedia, (the amateurs go to) Dali's real name was "Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dali i Domenech". Surely something to adapt from that?

I confess I don't understand the question here. The names of real people have been used in books for the last 100 years. The fact that in this case Salvador Dali would be the name of a cat makes it even less risky or controversial. (Unless the little furball ends up being a serial killer.)

Just last night I was watching The Alienist on TNT. The show, based on a book, has had Teddy Roosevelt, J.P. Morgan, and William Randolph Hearst as characters. So, naming a pet after a real-life person shouldn't even move the needle of concern. Unless I'm missing something...?

You can call the fictional cat Salvador Dali.

You can call it Warhol. You can call it Leonardo, Raphael, Michaelangelo or Donatello. Hell, you can even call it Donald Trump. My real-life cat's name is Bela Lugosi. We call him Bels.
My cat's name is Mandarine. I call her "Mandy" most times. My earlier point was - the cat's name is easily personalised. "Sal" or "Dals" or any other combination, which refers to the original, but makes it unique to the story.
