Does it?

Several problems I've found with this idea:

1) You mentioned the idea of multiple timelines in your opening, but you
seem to contradict that for the rest of your idea: if we indeed exist in
every timeline, then the implication is that it would be possible to
travel between timelines without adversely affecting the course the the
destination timeline.

2) If the absence of the SWATKats in a particular point in time does indeed
change the future after that point, then it is equally plausible that the
Pastmaster would have never appeared in the future ruled by the Metallikats
since most of his little time jaunts are usually a direct result of a
defeat at the hands of the SWATKats, a defeat which might not have happened
since the SWATKats skipped a period of their future ... This little
theory lends itself to too many abuses which makes time travel a nigh
impossible affair without ripping apart the whole timespace continuum
3) You assume that the temporal absence of the SWATKats is the reason for
the success of the Metallikats which doesn't seem to be the case from the
articles I've read on the ep.
