The way catch in focus is designed to work is one manually focuses at a chosen distance then when a subject arrives at the pre-focused distance the shutter activates.
True but it also allows you to depress the shutter and slowly turn the focusing ring or move the camera position and it won't fire until focused.

This works by setting the body to auto focus and then pressing and holding the shutter while adjusting focus or waiting for your subject.
