A music video of "Tongue Tied" was reportedly shown on the TOP OF THE POPS show in England and on MTV in the States. (a Full version is on the Smeg Outs Tape, although there are many version around)

Major Events

Cat is probably the last of the Cat People after the remaining members left in two arcs to look for Fushall aka Fiji. Cat was born from the two of the cats that had to stay when the arcs left.

One of the most major events in Cat's life is when he meets himself in Camille and falls in love.

Cat's body was once stolen by Rimmer

Finding out that the meal Kryten prepared whilst in Dallas, was Eric.


How Did Cat end up on Red Dwarf

Cat was born in the Cargo hold of Red Dwarf and is the last of the cat people (The cargo hold was sealed off during the Radiation Leak, the seals were not opened till the background radiation levels were safe)
His parents were two of the Cats left on Red Dwarf when the other left on the arcs, he was born from a cripple(mother) and idiot(he ate his own feet) and bought himself up which is why he doesn't know anything.
