it was fun...
each cat would catch 33 mices in 99 minutes. and then one of those cats would have to volunteer to catch the last mouse for the groupd which would be 3 minutes more...

What if all 3 ganged up on the last mouse?(!) Just being a little pedantic, nice teaser.

I was doing it right then changed my mind and went down a different path! Shame on me! It was fun trying though, well at least for me, but not those poor little mice!

Yes too many people will try to use ratios

it would = 100 mins because if 1 cat can catch a mouse in 3 mins then 3 cats would catch a mouse in 1 duhhhh!!!

Nowhere in the teaser does it say that 3 cats can catch 1 mouse in 1 minute.

P. S. : duhhh!
