Stacy Carter (born September 29th, 1971 in Memphis, Tennessee), better known as Miss Kitty or The Kat, is an American former pro wrestler and valet. She is best known as the ex-wife of wrestler Jerry "The King" Lawler. And yes she once held the WWE Women's Wrestling Championship.

Stacy Carter first appeared on WWF RAW in August 1999 as Miss Kitty, an assistant to Debra, appointed to her by Jeff Jarrett as a reward for coming back to work for him after a feud with D'Lo Brown. Within the next few months, Jarrett rejected Debra after a tag-team loss against Stephanie McMahon and Test, 'promoting' Miss Kitty to be his new manager.

Subsequently, Jarrett became involved in a feud against all of the women in the WWF by attacking them and wrestling 'miss-matches' against them while Intercontinental Champion. Jarrett would use Miss Kitty to gain an advantage, and in some cases, leave her to get beaten by his opponents. One such occasion was a mixed tag-team match that pitted Jarrett and Carter against Mae Young and The Fabulous Moolah. Jarrett refused to tag in, allowing Miss Kitty to be defeated by the far more experienced wrestlers.

The partnership ended when Jarrett left the company after losing the title to Chyna at No Mercy 1999. Because she won the match, Chyna also won the services of Miss Kitty. Carter then became a 'Chynette', dressing in 'Chyna-like' clothing and dying her hair black. It was also at this point that she changed her name simply to The Kat.

At Armageddon 1999 in December 1999, Miss Kitty won her only WWE Women's Wrestling Championship in a Four Corners Evening Gown Pool match by defeating champion Ivory, Jacqueline, and Barbara "BB" Bush. The Special Guest Referees were The Fabulous Moolah and Mae Young. After the match, Miss Kitty stripped out of her dress in celebration and flashed the crowd her breasts, before being covered up. This was The Kat's most infamous moment. This highlighted the "T and A" era of women's wrestling and showed what the division had become - more known for gimmicks and curves than actual wrestling ability. The Kat was cheered simply because she'd shown her breasts and because she might do it again.

Carter later lost the title on the January 31st edition of RAW to Harvey "Hervina" Wippleman in a 'Lumberjill Snowbunny Match'. Around the same time, the partnership between herself and Chyna was 'ended' with no explanation.

The Kat appeared at the Royal Rumble 2000 in the 'Miss Royal Rumble Swimsuit Contest'. She appeared in a bikini made out of bubble wrap. However, the contest was 'won' by Mae Young.

The Kat then entered into a lengthy feud with Terri Runnels. At WrestleMania 2000, Terri (accompanied by The Fabulous Moolah) defeated The Kat (with Mae Young) in a Catfight. Val Venis was the Special Guest Referee, but was distracted when Mae kissed him in response to Val making out with both Terri and The Kat. This allowed Moolah to pull The Kat out of the ring, and when Val saw her out of the ring, he declared Terri the winner. Post-match, The Kat attacked Terri by stripping her black pants off to expose her thong.

On the April 10th edition of RAW, The Kat was tricked by Terri into visiting a beauty salon to 'bury the hatchet'. Instead, Terri drugged her and gave her a bad cut and dyed her hair. As a result, The Kat changed her hair color and style on a regular basis, which would become part of her new gimmick. The feud would continue to an Arm Wrestling Match at Insurrextion 2000. The feud was cut short to allow Terri, now aligned with Perry Saturn, to feud with Chyna and Eddie Guerrero. The feud resurfaced in a 'Thong Stink Face' match at SummerSlam 2000 as part of Saturn's feud with Al Snow over the WWE European Championship. The Kat won the match by delivering a stinkface to Terri.
