Beneath the cuddly exterior is a machine controlled by Shinra's Reeve Tuesti, who uses it to spy on Cloud's gang. Once found out however, Cait Sith is ironically used to instead spy on the Shinra. This 'change of heart' came about in the Temple of the Ancients, where Cait Sith realised that he actually had friends in AVALANCHE, whilst his Shinra 'colleagues' abused him regularly.
Cait Sith turning against the Shinra proved that you can be the good guy by being the bad guy.
Being a stuffed animal with a cat on top, Cait Sith isn't exactly easy to ship. The best fans can generally hope for is a voyeurism fic featuring him, or a human AU.
Cait Sith's controller Reeve is shipped occasionally however, so it could count as Cait Sith being shipped, only by proxy. Reeve is most commonly shipped with his colleagues, Scarlett and/or Heidegger, with varying levels of consent.
