    I felt caught between "a" and "b"

    In "I felt caught between "a" and "b", the word "caught" is an adjective or a past participle?
    And does it mean you cannot choose between a and b?
    Are there more examples of two irregular verbs (to feel and to catch) next to each other in a sentence?

    'caught' is an adjective.
    Yes, that's what it means.
    Yes, there are many other possible examples of this. But you don't have two irregular verbs together, given that 'caught' is an adjective.
