Antigenetive case?

From:Joe <joe@...>

Has anyone thought of a case which marks a genetive, but marks it on the
posessed, not the posessor? I'll make up an example --

In a demo language (not existing)
 kathai elom
 cat.AGN(f) 3s.ACC(m)
 cat-of him
  his cat

AGN = anti genitive
3s = Third person singualr
ACC =   Accusative.

You see?

Does this exist in any natlangs?
