I got the oil drum....I got the bolts for the sax player...where in the world do I go to get the cat to scare the critter out of the digeradoo?!!!I keep reading the forum...Ive seen something about a bird on a wire(which I can't figure out) and mentions of the cat...Ive checked the walkthroughs in the game but the pics dont show me where to find cat or anything about the birds...HELP!!!

At the "church" go up left. there youll find a "ladder" robot which you can shift around a little...

the rest is stated in the book - wiggle your robot on the bridge up and down till the line breaks and the bird falls down. you have to complete the puzzle in the electric box, though - even with the missing part.

I found it to work the best when you do slow, "smooth" up/down movements with the mouse. Just think of the physics of it, and how an object under tension would break in the real world when an increasing amount of stretching is applied to it.

The bot has to be fully extended and fully crouched when doin it, doin it half ways doesn't cut it.. Up, down, up down and the bird should copy you putting so much tension on the line it'll snap... Took like 2 seconds.

Do it even faster! Tongue I'm not a lucky person and I managed to get it within seconds. Do you play FPS games? Might give you some reflex training. No offense of course.

You will also notice the bird isn't imitating you in sync... Try to go faster in crescendo.

same spot, different problem:

after having solved the electricity riddle, got the missing card from the bird, have distracted the repair robot, have scared the cat....but the cat doesn't get electrocuted the way it says in the help-book (although the electricity is flowing in the broken cable)

am i missing something here?

The cable must be tied to the railing.
