This is the one hundredth 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 plan out the girl's route to catch the cat on the fourth move.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The cat's owner has four possible moves at the start. Two of these moves will guide her to the right spot.

    The key to the puzzle is that the owner will move before the cat. Try to figure out which is the best place to be if you want to catch that cat.

Hint Two
    The best place to be if you want to catch the cat is in the spot that has most most connections.

    The cat has a number of positions it could land on by the third move, so the owner should aim at the one with the most options.

Hint Three
    Where could the cat be after his third move?

    There are four possible places it could be hiding. Once you know that, it should be obvious where the owner has to go on her third move.

Super Hint
    By the third move, the cat will be at either C, E, F, or H. Regardless of where the cat is on his third move, there is only one place that guarantees the cat's owner can catch him on her fourth move.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Looks like that naughty cat is still on the loose.

[edit] When Completed


The cat's owner must move either E-F-A or F-E-A. The cat's third move will leave him at either C, E, F, or H. If she's on spot A by her third move, she'll be able to get the jump on that cat and catch him on her very next move.

[edit] Solution

The girl must go to E, F, then A, or F, E, then A.
