# Feline Fun

There are four (4) cats in a boat, and one (1) jumped out. How many cats are left in the boat?

Solution: None, it is clearly said that 4 cats in a boat, one jumped off, since cats and humans are all copycats, the rest 3 cats and anyone who are humans also jumped off the boat.  We care about the moment, thus there in zero cats left in the boat.

Debbie and Bananz have correct answers.

The rest are well reasoned, and I enjoy the fun discussing this with you.  Thank U for the participation!

Happy Sunday 2 U all!

U R The Best!

Three? But would a cat jump out of a boat into water?

2. I look forward to hearing the answers. It clearly seems to be three, so what am I missing? 🙂

1. U R Smart to wait!
Jean, Happy March!
😉

3. Well there are still four in the boat. A matter of the tense of the verbs. The four ARE (present tense) and the one DID (past tense). There WERE five and now there ARE four.

1. Moe:

U Think like An artist, it is very simple.
😉

4. it can also be five, right? 😛 …one jumped out (from somewhere) onto the boat and joined the other four 😛

1. Moondai:

Jingle 4 cats are still in the boat. The word “ARE” gave it away. Present tense. You didn’t say “There were four cats in the boat.” If I am wrong, I can say that I tried. LOL

7. Guys,
I can tell that u r all confused, the answer is not 4, not 5, not 3, please guess and think more…
think about human nature, what common words u say about cats and human…

Good Luck!
I will wait until at least one correct answer is out from one of you.
keep trying or thinking!
😉

8. Well, I was going to say 4 cats are still in the boat, because one (a kitten) jumped out… and then I read your comment and am completely stumped. Way to confuse us.

9. Since you did not say that the one that jumped out was a cat…then I guess there are four cats in the boat.

1. Wow, Slpmartin:

u r careful observer!
😉

10. oh u clever lady hahhaha this was really cool, logically u would say there are three left but there is a catch I say there is still 4 hehhe 🙂

11. If u think about copy cats, then u shall know.

12. How would you even get cats into a boat? My cat turns into claws and teeth if there’s water anywhere in the vicinity.

13. JINGLE, I THOUGHT YOU NEEDED YOUR VERY OWN CUSTOMISED AWARD SO I MADE YOU ONE! YOU CAN FIND IT ON MY SITE!

14. What I want to know is how many cats are RIGHT in the boat.

1. \$ in the boat, thank u for joining us!
😉

15. Well since cat’s hate water I’m thinking there owner jumped in and so there are 4 again in that boat! 😀 😀 I’ll check back I want to see who got this???

The mystery to this question is over. Who would have though about
“Copycats” and Jingle so cleavely gave us a hint to the answer when she said, “Try not to (copy) the answer from previous blogger unless you are absolutely sure about it.” That is so cool how you slipped the answer into that statement. So all the copycats jumped out behind the one leaving none. Good job in fooling us Jingle. This was fun, but drove my 63 year old mind crazy. LOL

1. Viola:

U R so patient and funny, i enjoy your efforts.
😉

17. There is none at all, no cats in the boat, just an idiom of letting the cats out of the bag.:P

18. I agree the with the copycat idea 😀 I shall copy Viola’s answer. Absolutely sure 😀

1. Yes, copycat is the core of this question!
😉

19. Depends on how many were originally in the boat. I don’t know Jingle, lol….this is too much too early in the am for me! ha ha ha

20. Hello, everyone who joined the Feline Fun:

I have put up the correct solution out along the post.
Hope that u r convinced!
