There is a work-around:

In Control Center, Desktop, Window-Specific Settings; or from Kate's title bar context menu, select Advanced, Special window settings; and create an option for Kate. In the 'Workarounds' tab, set the focus stealing prevention level to None and leave the global setting at Low.

How in the world did I remember that? :)
