It took me about a dozen attempts before I could stop the cat from escaping.  Give it a try.

I remember playing that a while ago. Tried it again today and it took me a while to finally "circle" the cat.

I completely forgot about the strategy I had for the game, but picked it up pretty quickly. I try to always use the circles to create semi-complete blocks, which ultimately give me more time to devote in covering up more places. I still get behind the chase sometimes, though.
I'm a horrible person.

Oh yeah. I circled the hell out of it.

I've gotten to the point where I can do it about 60-70% of the time last time I played it. Played it twice, got him both times.

The trick is the exploit the c[h]at's movement algorithm; that is, the fact it will move to the closest unblocked edge.

So let it do that while it moves to a place you can block, block it, and complete the fence while he's wasting time getting back.
