9 Lives

Situation 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.

I thought that one cat jumped and 8 others followed.

Or there were 10 cats in the building and the building was on fire. The cat that jumped was the only one that survived

My first thought was - "It killed off all it's nine lives?" My second thought was "It hit a fragile sky scraper with 8 cats on the top floor and knocked it over or something?",
and my final thought was "It landed on 8 other cats?" (my favourite one) - I never thought about kittens

How awful!

I thought he had 9 lives that died or there were "copycats" that followed him!
Nov 09, 2008

Wow... some cat. A cat would normally have 2 to 5 kittens, but 8... I liked it though. I must say, unborn cats shouldn't be considered cats, since scientists don't even consider fetuses human.

This made me sad
May 19, 2009

8 kittens!That's alot
Nov 08, 2009

That's terrible.

Horse luver: doesn't that make them copycats

I disagree with this teaser because cats land on their feet.
Apr 13, 2011

My first thought: please don't let it be pregnant, please, please, please. Chah and yuck and eww.
Sorry that I am a sensitive viewer in this case.

Ahh... This makes me so sad.
Good teaser, nevertheless.
