So at the end of the casino palace joker went into hiding. The team met up face to face with shido to try to talk to him and he didn't recognize them.

Shouldn't he have known who the faces of the Phantom Thieves? Or did Akechi never gave that information to him? Seems kind of strange. Shido knew about the cat also, and didn't get alarmed to see those kids with a cat also?

He didn't know their faces, no. He was relying on Akechi to deal with it and didn't care to know what they looked like, for whatever reason. He wasn't "alarmed" by Morgana being with them, as he knew from Akechi's reports that they did have a weird cat on their team. So when they showed up when he was expecting them, it was perfectly sensible that the cat would be with them.

Very strange for him not to want to know who the kids were considering how much of a treat they were.

I mean they offed a lot of people who knew about that metaverse... I would think he would want to keep tabs on them with the power he had.

The first thing you have to realize about Shido is, Shido's utterly incompetent. The second thing you have to realize about Shido is, Shido doesn't give a s*** about anything but his own ego. You also, then, have to realize that Akechi probably didn't give too many details on who the members really were, because it's strongly implied he was trying to protect them from a needless death at Shido's hands when he himself was planning on eliminating Shido anyway. And Shido, being incompetent and not caring about anything utter than his own ego, wouldn't press any further anyway.

So no, he's not going to pay attention to a random bunch of kids, because he sees all kids as exactly the same. Useless, unless they're stroking his ego. And he's not smart enough to critically consider any other implications.

Shido's complete lack of care for anyone else is one of his defining character traits. He prefers to not have first hand knowledge of anything, giving him plausible deniability

shido assumed his pet dog was enough to take care of insects. his pride made him too arrogant that no kid can actually threaten him so why bother remembering the features of kids?
