Catherine Vernice Glover (born July 25, 1968) is an American professional choreographer, dancer and singer.[1]

She originally hit the mainstream in television alongside her dance partner Patrick Allen in the duo known simply as "Pat & Cat" on the hit major talent show Star Search hosted by Ed McMahon (of The Tonight Show fame). Their act was the first to ever achieve a "Perfect Score" of Four Stars on the show. She was the standout member of the duo, winning the crowd over with her trademark dance move "Cat Scat".

Cat is perhaps best known for her work with Prince in the late 1980s. She choreographed and appeared in several of his videos and his concert film Sign o' the Times,[2] traveled with him as a backing vocalist and dancer on the Sign o' the Times Tour and Lovesexy Tour, and rapped on both The Black Album track "Cindy C." and the Lovesexy song "Alphabet St.". Her "Cat Scat" move appears in the music video for "U Got The Look". She was supposed to have released an album on Paisley Park, but the project was ultimately canceled.

Following her work with Prince, she released the EP Catwoman in 1989. Since that time it is reported that she has worked in London and Los Angeles, recording her own material as well as continuing her choreography and performing.[3]

She has recorded with Tim Simenon of Bomb The Bass, plus Louie Louie, and Steve Hopkins.
