Our expert says:
CAT is methcathenone, a methamphetamine which makes the person very alert, unable to sleep and a loss of appetite. It is an addictive substance and is often cut with other chemicals in the same way that ceystal meth or 'tik' is constructed.
Typically it stays in the system for up to 48 hours after which a negative test will be returned. But if she is using it regularly then if you test her on a sunday or monday then an weekend using would show up.
If she is positive then you need to cosider your options for treatment.
