My friend's niece is 2nd grade and reads pretty well..she's interested in books with cats/kittens. Are there any series for this age or thereabouts starring cats?

The Cats of Cuckoo Square by Adele Geras are very early chapter readers.  Picasso Perkins

The Aminal Ark series has cats.  But I'm not sure of the reading level.  Kittens in the Kitchen

There's a cute story called Highway Cats, the author's last name is Lisle I believe the first name is Janet.

Ursula Le Guin has a series out for kids called Catwings there are 4 or 5 books in it.

Anne McCaffrey has a book called No One Noticed the Cat but it might be a little above her reading level.

James Herriot has a cute kids book called The Christmas Cat which is a long picture book.

Jan Karon has the Violet series which are picture books.
