This is the one hundred and twenty-second puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Maurice. In order to solve this puzzle, you must jump the kittens over each other to leave Lucky the black cat remaining in the center of the board.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Let's concentrate on just one of the several possible ways to solve this puzzle.

    See how the cats are clustered at the bottom? The two kittens at the top are the problem here. Think about how the jump over those two. Lucky doesn't make the first move here.

Hint Two
    First make the kitten below the center square jump diagonally upward--either way will do. Keep jumping it until it has moved around the board and returned to its original position. This should leave five kittens in the bottom two rows of the board.

Hint Three
    It's about time Lucky did some work now. Maybe you can finish the puzzle with her?

    You don't start with a diagonal jump, if that's what you're thinking.

Super Hint
    From the position with five kittens left at the end of Hint 2, move Lucky either vertically or horizontally.

    For example, if you move her up, she has to jump diagonally down and then sideways twice. The last move should bring her to the middle!
