Cats in Spring
Logic Grid puzzles come with a handy interactive grid that will help you solve the puzzle based on the given clues.
On a beautiful spring day in the park, there were five female cats walking together and gossiping about their humans. Up ahead, there were five males walking together bragging about their conquests. When the two groups met, there were five cupids flying through the air. Next thing ya know, there were five couples walking away in separate directions. The couples began talking and soon found that they had amazing things in common. Well, long story short, we all know what happens to cats that fall in love in the springtime, oh my what a racket! Can you figure out who the couples were, what treats they liked, what their favorite activity was and how many kittens each had in their litter?
Male: Punkin, Batman, Billy, Jake, Dibii
Female: Pepper, Sally, Ruby, Spot, Starbuck
Snack: Chicken, Mice, Tuna, Ice Cream, Chips
Activity: Laser, String, Sleep, Beat Up, Ball
# in Litter: 1,3,5,7,9
1. The five males were: Jake, the one that liked tuna fish & had five kittens, the one that liked Spot, the one that liked to beat up other cats, and the one that loved ice cream.
2. The five females were: Starbuck, the one that had nine kittens, the one that liked to eat chicken & chase a ball, the one that liked to sleep, and the one that liked Punkin.
3. Dibii (who had three kittens) liked to chase the laser light but not mice. On the other hand, Sally loved to chase mice but not string.
4. Batman didn't have a thing for Sally and he didn't have seven kittens. Billy, who thought of himself as very big & tough, had the most kittens & wasn't about to chase some stupid string around - what a waste of time!
5. Ruby loved to cuddle up to her male for a long afternoon nap in the sun but hated it when he ate his chips in bed. That may be the reason they didn't have the most kittens (they didn't have the least either).
6. Pepper & Punkin didn't have one kitten but they did like tuna fish.

|This one took some getting-used- to but I finally caught on! I rated it fun and difficult. |
Dec 29, 2005
|not bad, but i was able to answer it without the last clue. the first 5 were enough.|

|Nicely done!! I love these logic grids!|

|Not hard, but quite fun. But when have you ever seen a litter of one?|
Oh, and Billy is mean little puss. I sure wouldn't want to be his human.

|fun! but clue#6 is unnecessary...|

|Thanks for the input gang! This is my 1st logic-grid & I was a little worried at how well it would be taken. I'm working on my clues so that they won't be so easy or redundant for next time.|
Splatt - All of the cats are based on ones that I have & ones that I know. Billy is my cat & yes he is a big bully! His full name is "Billy Bad A**" or "Da**it Billy" whichever suits the hijinx he's involved with at the time!

|Good Job!! I thought the subject was entertaning, and I had to think a little, and reread somethings. Then, I acidentally closed my grid right at the end and had to start again . I still got it though. thanks for the teaser!!!! |

|good grid. I should have read the directions more carefully. It took me a long time to figure out that the pair liked the same things. P.S. that is a lot of kittens|

|A great way to break from work for a while |
I agree with the other guys, leaving out #6 would have made it a little tougher to get going. Apart from that it was good fun!

|Great teaser! I ended up getting it right but that's not the only reason I rated it for top fun-ness. I really enjoy logic-grids that make you think a bit, and this is a prime example of one. Good job! |

|i enjoyed it very much...it was easy and i got it really quick but great job for submitting one ... i haven't even done that one! |

|This was my first one I tried to solve at this site. (Have done a couple in puzzle mags befoe) so I was a bit intimidated. I had to use the grid, but I got it. Gave it medium difficulty and all fun. |

|Very fun, thanks!|

|I really like teasers that just junp out at you, but this takes way too long to do. |
Feb 06, 2007
|Great Teaser!!! |

|Fuun! I love the note about the racket kitties make in the spring. So true. It is devastatingly loud! |
Great Teaser! It was really fun!
Apr 25, 2007
|its really good.. its pretty hard at first.. but i got all the right answers.. i could probably start learning how to make my own logic grid! |

|This was wonderful! We used to do these in school, and let me tell you, the clue synopsis was never this adorable. This was great fun, hope you make lots more!|
Jun 06, 2007
|This one was fun. I had to really pay attention to the clues. missed that ruby likes to cuddle up in the sun at first, but caught it second time through. I had fun picturing all the kitties with their different personalities.|

|Very nice. Challenging enough to be interesting but not so hard as to be discouraging.|
Sep 07, 2007
|Very easy but just a little time-consuming. Still, a great teaser with a fun, interesting storyline! |

|I enjoyed the subject matter with the cats and kitten. I thought the puzzle was easy and there were a few redundant clues. I'm looking forward to your next one. |
Dec 30, 2007
|Great teaser! Not too hard, not too easy. Fun too.|
Jan 12, 2008
|Maybe I'm missing something: if the couples are supposed to like the same treats, then how does Ruby end up with Jake? This little apparent inconsistency had me scratching my post for a while.|
Jul 02, 2008
|Only had to start over once! HA! |
Apr 17, 2010
