Feminish
I think of cat-calling as something like a whistle, holler, yell, shout, inaudible animal growl or bark, etc.
Cat-calling is absolutely a form of street harassment. Notice I said a form of street harassment, meaning it takes many different shapes and form - stuff like leering, being followed, audible sexual comments, and grunts are other forms of common street harassment. 
Street harassment it is not a compliment. It is harassment. Men who say it should be taken as a compliment are revealing that they, themselves, probably harass women on the streets. It says everything about them, and society, and nothing about you.
