Cat Attack is an unreleased song by Cat recorded on 23 January 1989, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota, for use on her planned solo album (shortly after Prince returned from a trip to London to discuss his participation in the Batman movie, during the same set of sessions as Cat And Mouse, Nine Lives, and A Man Called Jesus). Eric Leeds added saxophone overdubs to the track the next day, also at Paisley Park Studios (the same day Margie Cox added lead vocal overdubs on Girls Will Be Girls). It is assumed to be a rap track, as Cat wasn’t known to sing. The project was abandoned, however, when Cat announced she was moving to England to work with producer Tim Simenon, and the song remains unreleased.
