CAT CAN BE SEEN ON FOX’S HIT TV SHOW β€œGLEE”, AS WELL AS A LEAD IN BEYONCE’S β€œWHO RUN THE WORLD” MUSIC VIDEO. ONE OF CAT'S MOST RECENT PROJECTS WAS FILMING "ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS, THE ROADCHIP." CAT VIGER IS THE PERFECT ROLE MODEL FOR KIDS EVERYWHERE, SHOWING THAT REALLY ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN IF YOU PUT YOUR HEART AND MIND TO IT.
CAT IS STILL AUDITIONING, BUT HAS ALSO FOUND A LOVE FOR TEACHING AND CHOREOGRAPHING. CAT VIGER CREATED A PROFESSIONAL BURLESQUE GROUP BASED OUT OF ATLANTA KNOWN AS CAT'S KITTENS ATLANTA. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THE GROUP PLEASE VISIT THE CAT'S KITTENS PAGE. SHE IS ON FACULTY AT WCDE A TECHNIQUE BASED STUDIO LOCATED IN THE GREATER ATLANTA AREA.
