¿Ningún o ninguno/a?

Hola, una pregunta pequeña ¿cómo se debo usar esa palabra misteriosa?

Ningún gatera había sido...
Ninguna gatera había sido...

¿Se debe añadir la "A"?
muchas gracias

Debe ser:

No tengo coche.
No tengo ningún coche.
No tengo ninguno.

No tengo casa.
No tengo ninguna casa.
No tengo ninguna.

The word is shortened to ningún when it comes before a masculine noun. Otherwise it follows the regular rules of agreement (when the noun is feminine or when no noun is present).

I'd like to add that 'ninguno' is a pronoun (the same with alguno'):

Adjetivo indefinido + nombre:

No tengo ningún coche
Tengo algún dinero.
No tengo ninguna idea.
Tengo alguna idea.

Pronoun:

No tengo ninguno
No me confío en ninguna.

Can you correctly say: no tengo idea alguna.
In the past I have seen in writing evidence that the double negative
is not always used in Spanish.

The word ninguno means anything with the contrary of Alguno as Irmamar said before.

en español. Lo vi escrito.

Por ejemplo se puede decir: La policia no encontraron evidencia alguna.
en lugar del más común, La policia no encontraron evidencia ninguna.

Quiero saber si la anterior es correcto. Gracias.
