Re: Friday Puzzler -- The Duck and The Cat

Larry Barrett
If the duck can get within about 3/4Radius of the shore, and directly opposite the cat, the duck can swim directly to shore and escape.

Or, the duck can swim a short way toward the shore directly opposite the cat. When the cat runs half way around the pond, the duck starts swimming back the other way. The cat runs back and the duck turns and swims back when the cat gets near the starting point. The duck does this a few more times and the cat is so tired the duck can easily swim to the shore and escape.
