Is there a way to "append to the beginning" of the cell array?

See this snippet. Hopefully it's self-explanatory.
% Create a new cell array.
ca = cell(1, 3);
for k = 1 : length(ca)
ca{k} = 1:k;
ca % Display in command window.
newStuff = rand(2); % Create some new data.
% Prepend it before cell #1, and show resulting array in the command window.
ca = [newStuff, ca]

You can also use the cat command to "append to the beginning".
C = {"the" "end"};
C = cat(2,{"not"},C);
