These ten cats need to be divided up into pairs, in accordance with the following rules:

1. There should be three pairs of cats of the same type - in other words, the same shape and colouring.

2. If a cat is wearing a ribbon, the other cat in the pair must also be wearing a ribbon.

Move the cats by sliding them to other cats' positions and swapping them over.

First sort these four cats into two pairs.

There is also a pair who are not of the same type and neither is wearing a ribbon.
