[edit] Hints

Hint One
    It's important to consider the first move.

    You may feel safer leaving Lucky in the middle, but you're going to have to move her to solve this. In fact, the first step is to make her jump four times in a row.

Hint Two
    Let's say you chose to move Lucky down on the first move, and down is south.

    Keep going and jump Lucky northwest, northeast, then southeast. She should now be sitting in the middle of the rightmost column.

    Now try to make one of the kittens jump so that it lands a bit closer to Lucky.

Hint Three
    Let's pick up from Lucky getting to her last position in Hint 2. The kitten you want to move next is the one that is farthest left. There's only one square it can go to.

    After that, another kitten has to move, but there's only one way to avoid getting stuck. After this jump, you should be almost there!

Super Hint
    The second kitten that has to move in Hint 3 is the bottom one. Make it jump upward so that you end up with two kittens lined up together at the top.

    There's now just one way left for a kitten to jump, so go for it. After that, jump jump Lucky into the middle!
