"Cat: I don't laugh like that. Jade: Puppies wearing sunglasses.(Cat laughs) " — An exchange between Jade and Cat in Opposite Date

Cade is the pairing of Cat Valentine and Jade West (C/at and J/ade). Another term for this pairing is Jat (J/ade and C/at), although the name is rarely used. It is unknown how they met; however, Cat and Jade are best friends - Jade tones her insults down towards Cat, and they show concern for the other's well-being and stand up for each other when problems occur, although in seasons two and three, Jade seems irritated by Cat quite often.

Friendship between the two is also often explored. A frequent theme of the pairing's dynamic is compromise and exception-making 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 many moments (Robarazzi,Beck Falls for ToriTerror on Cupcake StreetTori Tortures Teacher, etc) when Jade apparently gets irritated by Cat. In such cases, Jade has made Cat color items (tiger), play with Jade's keys, and has even stuffed cereal into her mouth. It seems that these occasions aren't taken to heart by Cat, which is unusual of her.

  • Cat is Jade's first pick for a partner when she does a drive-by acting exercise in Improv class, while Beckis her third pick (this is surprising because Beck was her boyfriend at the time and she was very over-protective of him).
  • It should also be noted that Cat begins to stand up when Sikowitz chooses Jade to lead their improv skit before Jade even selects her, suggesting that she already knew that she would be Jade's first choice.

  • Cat bumps into Jade when she stands up after Sikowitz hits her in the face with a ball, and Jade tolerates it.
  • Jade is annoyed and angry that Sikowitz hit Cat with a ball.
