October 15th Tri-Peaks Challenge

Can anyone help with this challenge? I have tried every combination it seems and I can't even clear the first board, much less the second board. Thanks!

Thank you, CombinedPlague2 - very interesting. I suppose there is always more than one way to kill a cat;-)

I love cats, though!

When I first completed this challenge, I battled for about 1o minutes before I solved it, without memorising my exact steps. When I saw Owenisawesome's plea for help, I was intrigued to get it solved again, and boy did I battle. It certainly deserves to be categorised as being "hard" as what is the case.
