- An exchange between Jade and Cat in Rex Dies.

Cade is a term for the pairing between Cat Valentine and Jade West (C/at and J/ade). Another term for this pairing is Jat (J/ade and C/at). While Cade is the official/most commonly used name, both are usually acknowledged by the community. Cat and Jade seem to be good friends: Jade tones her insults down towards Cat, and they express concern for the others well-being and stand up for each other when problems occur.

Friendship between the two is also often explored. A very frequent theme (and arguably the pairings main dynamic) is compromise and making exceptions. The two have been shown to be friends and have shown surprisingly little animosity towards one another (a few exceptions not- with- standing).They are the best of friends, although they are opposites.

Cat responds: "That's so hurtful!" But she doesn't

  • Cat says that Hayley and Tara are "tight" and Jade says "Tight means good" and Cat says to Haley and Tara "You are so...........NOT TIGHT! and When Cat asks "Good, right?" after insulting the girls, (which is veryJade-like, and not in Cat's nature to do) Jade says "For you", which implies that had someone else said it, she would've made fun of them. This shows Jade holds Cat in a higher esteem than others.
  • Interestingly enough, Cat quickly puts up Beck as a reward for the girls winning the bet. Although they are confident they will win, had they not picked Tori, there would be a slight chance that they would lose
    the bet, forcing Beck to kiss the girl(s). If Cat likes Jade, this would be a means of getting her to herself.

The Diddly BopsEdit

  • Cat was helping Jade get dressed, and giggles excitedly when she and Tori go to fit Jade's boobs in the hamburger.
  • When Rex says something Jade doesn't like Jade pulls his arm off. Yet when Cat comes up and tells them that she booked another gig for "The Diddly Bops" Jade does nothing and Rex calls her on it.

  • Jade said to Cat, "Thank you for making me come to this play." which means Cat asked her to come to the play, and also that Jade gave in to Cat.

  • Cat comments on Jade's post, (saying that she HATES babies) and asks if she hates her profile because it has baby heads all over it.

Cat comments that she's currently eating mustard and wearing the color pink, and she fears that Jade must hate her for this.

And Cat seems to know she's not included because she is relieved and mentions that she's not most people (she's Cat).

  • Cat and Jade sing back-up for Robbie on his song about strangers, and end up dancing together.
  • Jade posts that she is at the movies with Cat.
  • On Beck's Profile, he states that Jade's at the movies, so basically Jade would rather be at the movies with Cat then with her boyfriend.
  • Jade records the second 'Cat's Random Thoughts' video in Cat's bedroom. Cat frequently wonders if it is recording because there is no red light on the camcorder. In a different video ('Drive-by Acting Exercises: Beck and Jade') Jade is also wondering if her and Beck's video is recording because she doesn't see the light.
  • Cat puts up a status saying "Is happy". Jade comments on it asking why? and Cat comments back say 'Why what?' Jade: 'Why are you happy?' Cat: 'I'm not. I'm actually really sad today.' Jade: 'Then why does
    your status say is happy!?????'. Cat: 'Oh, that was a typo'.
  • When Cat repeats the 'shellfish' joke on TheSlap, Jade threatens that if she says that joke again she'll de-friend Cat in real life (so that means Jade considers them as friends).

Cat: Going to a Sri Lankan restaurant with Jade called "The Hot & Spicy Pepper Palace." She likes watching me sweat while I eat.
