Sorry, but it's clearly a lost battle from the start.
Adobe had to make difficult decisions with its reorientation toward digital 
marketing/ digital media, but the abandon of Flash Catalyst must have been 
one of its easier one.
Sales were poor. People already voted with their wallets.
It could have been a great tool for all of us, I know it was for a few ones, 
but it's gone.
And also don't forget: Adobe won't developp the Design View in Flash Builder 
anymore, because of the tight integration with the Apache Flex SDK it would 
have required. Flash Catalyst would be worse, because part of the SDK was in 
fact written to help FC compatibility. Without real control over the SDK, FC 
is now almost impossible to handle for Adobe, in a ROI kind of way anyway.
