As far as I am aware, pussy (cat) is still a/the normal expression for cat among younger British children
The nearest meaning I can think of is something like "kind", "gentle", "considerate" often used of a man who is normally thought of as intimidating, as in: "He's a real pussy when you get to know him."
LEO übersetzt pussy unter anderem mit
der Schlappschwanz [ugs.] [pej.]
der Waschlappen [ugs.] [fig.][pej.]
I wouldn't say that that meaning is very BE, btw.
