This puzzle is part of the Monthly Topic Challenge #13: Variety Slitherlinks.
What happens when you're working on a couple of puzzles for the Monthly Topic Challenge and try to merge them?
Well, in my case it all went quite smoothly until Penpa gave me a very strange error message - "Widening their six-sided cat limousines" - and deleted the solution, leaving just the puzzle.
So if anyone could work out what my intended solution was, and explain that weird error message, I'd be really grateful.
Standard(ish) slitherlink rules:
a singletwo, non-self-intersecting loops that only consists of horizontal and vertical segments between the dots.
- Numbers inside a cell indicate how many of the edges of that cell are part of
- Loops may cross straight over at an intersection, but may not follow the same edge, nor meet when they turn.
I'm expecting a completed slitherlink grid, preferably with solve path; and a single twelve letter word.
