For your entertainment:

The object is to prevent the cat from reaching the edge of the tiles. Enjoy.

But nothing seems to happen if you do capture the cat ... encircle it, and it just hops around the circle. Gradually fill in the circle and you just go on to another level.

Without some sort of reward, I don't see the point. Grrr. Woof.

Best regards, Andrew

You should be able to smash it. I agree the game is a little incomplete.

My favorite game from that site is Dice Wars

I captured the cat after 10 tries. I did not apply my brain properly.

Mindless & addictive. I caught him about 25% of the time I suppose. He moves a lot like a black cat I had once. I love how he just walks off like he's bored with the game when he gets away. Do I need better drugs?

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
