This is the twenty-eighth puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Hugo. In order to solve this puzzle, you must fill the grid with cats, making sure that no more than two of the same colored cat are next to each other in a row or column.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Anytime you spot two adjacent cats of the same color in a row or column, any space next to them in that row or column will need to be filled with a cat of the opposite color.

Hint Two
    First, concentrate on the placement of the white cats.

    You can only plance a total of four cat paperweights in any single row or column. Once you figure out where the white cats go, you can pretty much fill the remaining spaces with black cats.

Hint Three
    A white cat must belong in the empty space between the two black cats in the column farthest to the right.

    Remember, when you have two cats of the same color next to each other in the middle of a row or column, you must place cats of the opposite color on either side of them. Continue placing paperweights according to these rules until the grid is filled in!

Super Hint
    Put a white cat between the two black cats in the column farthest to the right.

    Put white cats in the top and bottom spaces of the second column from the left.

    Put a white cat between the two black cats in the second row from the bottom.

    Think you can figure out the rest?

Too bad.

Start by looking at the paperweights that have already been placed on the grid.

There was no rule about having an uneven number of black cats and white cats!
