Since my cat waited there for me I gave it some food.

=

Weil dort meine Katze auf mich wartete, gab ich ihr Futter.



Is it right that the meaning of "since" is "weil"?

In this context, yes.

It can also mean 'seit'

'I've been here since 2 o'clock.' 'Ich bin seit 2 Uhr hier gewesen.'

Can I instead "since" use other words?

When 'since' means 'seit' there really isn't another word worth using, no.

When it means 'weil' you could also use 'because'
