Besides the details provided from google answers here...I will give you a simple explanation

Ever seen a cat walk or any of their species...they place one foot ahead and the next comes just behind it...
and thats the way our Female Models are taught to walk on the narrow ramp...hence the term catwalk

The cat walk originated in eighteen eighty five......... It is a long, narrow, foot way to such narrowness of passage one has to cross carefully, as a cat walks. It originated on ships and theatrical back-stages. Application to fashion show runways started in the mid-20th century. Today the word cat walk denotes a narrow path which models walk to showcase their clothes. The term was used on the onset of the industrial revolution where bridges were used to connect adjacent buildings. Because of the limited width and the height of these platforms, it was said that only a cat could walk the length of the platform with out falling down.
