Cat in the BackSituation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.
This is a true story. Three animals were walking in single file. The rabbit was in front. It was followed by the dog. The cat followed behind them both.
The rabbit said "I'm in front." The dog said "I'm in the middle." The cat said "I'm in front."
They were all walking forwards. They were not looking backwards. How can you explain this?
HintRemember, I said I was telling you a true story.
AnswerRemember, I said I was telling a true story, so the facts in the first paragraph are true. Therefore it follows that the cat must be lying.
