Cascade mixing provides an place for elegant study of B0-$\bar{B^0}$ mixing. We use this idea to study the $C\!PT$violation caused by B0-$\bar{B^0}$ mixing. An approximation method is adopted to treat the two complex B0-$\bar{B^0}$mixing parameters $\theta$ and $\phi$. A procedure to extract the parameters $\theta$ and $\phi$ is suggested. The feasibility of exploring $C\!PT$ violation and determining $\theta$ and $\phi$ in the future B-factories and LHC-B is discussed.
