Cat Chat was the first Internet / JANET talker, created in 1990 by Chris Thompson, who used the name "Cat" on the talker. It was based on the LPMud server code and was hosted at the University of Warwick. It was later replaced by Cheeseplant's House.

This was an LPmud, which had its rooms replaced by a number of 'Channels', and which had its user command set reduced to just those required for communication (for the most part)."
