    Got given this game for Christmas. Really good quality from the packaging to the contents.
    Just enjoyed our first game but then hit a question with the scoring for lesson 4.

    So our question is – what makes a lonely cat? Is it any cat not in a family (eg 2 red cats touching are both lonely), or does it have to be completely separated from every other cat of its own colour, or even, can it only be connected to a treasure?
    We haven’t played Isle of Cats so don’t know if that would have helped.
    Thanks in anticipation.

      Hi Paul,

      I hope you had a good Christmas.

      To answer your question, a lonely cat is one that is completely separated from every other cat of its own colour. It can be touching treasure.

      I hope this helps!

        Thanks Frank that’s really helpful. Sorry I didn’t reply earlier – google decided to hide your answer in spam
