No. Menopause is the period when women stop menstruating, and since cats do not menstruate in the first place, they cannot go through menopause. Only primates, such as humans and chimps, menstruate. (Cats will bleed a little while in heat, but this is part of the estrous cycle, which is not the same. Estrus in cats is closer to the period right after menstruation in humans.) They don't even go through menopause in the sense of ceasing to experience estrus; cats remain fertile throughout life.
