- An exchange between Jade and Cat in Who Did It to Trina?

Cade is 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) which is not used as often. While Cade is the official and more commonly used name, both are usually acknowledged by the community. It is the most popular slash ship in the fandom. It is unknown how they met, however, Cat and Jade seem to be good friends; Jade tones her insults down towards Cat, and they show concern for the others well-being and stand up for each other when problems occur, although in season two Jade seems a little irritated by Cat. There is also a Cade Wiki, which needs some help and is currently under construction.

Friendship between the two is also often explored. A very frequent theme (and arguably the pairing's main dynamic) is compromise and making exceptions with each other. The two have been shown to be friends and have shown surprisingly little animosity towards one another.

All that said, there have been moments (e.g. Robarazzi, Terror on Cupcake Street) when Jade apparently gets irritated by Cat. However, it also seems that these occasions aren't taken to heart by Cat, which is unusual.

See Eliana for the real-life pairing of the actresses, Ariana Grande and Elizabeth Gilles.

  • Jade does seem happy for Cat finding a boyfriend and does nothing against them, showing their friendship. However, when Cat kisses Daniel, Jade immediately kisses Beck, implying some jealousy.

  • Jade also tells Cat that she's picking the song, which Cat happily obliges to.

  • Cat laughs and lightly shoves Jade's knee after she insults the girl's performance, which doesn't faze Jade.
  • Cat and Jade seem to enjoy performing with each other, as they're comfortable rubbing up to each other while they dance (with the same choreography), and look at each other happily.
  • When the owner of the club says that "two girls really stood out tonight," Jade and Cat look at each other, shyly smile, then turn away.
  • Both Cat and Jade were upset by losing to Hayley and Tara, and considered themselves better.
    IMG 0252
  • Jade doesn't make fun of Cat for not initially getting that the karaoke contest was rigged due to one of the competitor's being related to the owner, though she had several opportunities to do so.

  • When Cat asks "Good, right?" after insulting the girls, (which is very Jade-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
    Cade o GIFSoup com
    shows Jade holds Cat in a higher esteem than others.
  • Cat says that Hayley's dad letting them win "is so tight" and Jade politely corrects her saying "Tight means good," without getting frustrated or putting her down.
  • 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.
    162px-Give it up (jade and cat)
  • Cat seems to try insulting Haley and Tara as much she can.

  • When Cat accidentally shocked Jade and immediately apologized, Jade didn't seem so mad at her.

The Diddly Bops

  • 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 wonders if the dye in Cat's hair gives her brain damage.
    240px-Cade DaleSqires
  • Usually, Jade gets over-possessive even when someone kisses Beck in a play or movie scene. Cat kissed Beck in a scene, so that must mean that Jade trusts Cat with Beck.

    137px-Cade DaleSquires1

  • When Robbie accuses Cat of cutting Trina's harness, Jade turns to her and says in a very gentle, kind voice, "Did you cut Trina's harness gimble?"
  • 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 into Cat.
  • Cat asks Jade for some oatmeal, to which she replies, "No." But this may infer that Jade has given Cat oatmeal before.

  • 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.
  • Jade posts that mustard disgusts her and that she hates the color pink. Cat comments that she's currently
    eating mustard and wearing the color pink, and she fears that Jade must hate her for this. As a response, Jade tells her that she has no idea of the hatred she has for most people (she never includes Cat in this, though). And Cat seems to know she's not included because she is relieved and mentions that she's not most people (she's Cat).
  • Jade comments on Cat's profile video saying that she won't call it good, but she doesn't hate it, which Beck tells Cat to consider as a HUGE compliment from Jade.

I'm actually really sad today.' Jade replies, 'Then why does your status say is happy!?????' Cat says, '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 does consider them as friends).
