  • $\begingroup$ A quick review shows that every puzzle you have posted here has been reposted content from brainzilla.com. While sharing really memorable puzzles found elsewhere is appreciated, it's not really fair (nor fair use) for you to gain rep here by predominantly (or exclusively!) posting run-of-the-mill content from other sources, even with attribution. Reposting these logic-grid puzzles is a lot like someone posting a Sudoku book, one puzzle a month... that shouldn't be okay here, for multiple reasons. May I suggest you try creating some content of your own? $\endgroup$ – Rubio Oct 10 '17 at 18:01

I believe the answer is:

Asian - Pink collar - 3 yr old - Chicken
Highlander - Green collar - 2 yr old - Turkey
Manx - White collar - 4 yr old - Duck
Persian - Black collar - 1 yr old - Fish

This was fun. Thanks! :)

Answer

\begin{array} {|c|c|c|c|} \hline Breed&Collar&Age&Food\\\hline Asian&Pink&3&Chicken\\\hline Highlander&Green&2&Turkey\\\hline Manx&White&4&Duck\\\hline Persian&Black&1&Fish\\\hline \end{array}

Explanation

  1. The ages of the Highlander and the cat with white collar sum up to 6. They don't like fish.
  2. The cats with green and pink collar have 1 year of difference. They aren't Persians.
  3. The Manx cat is black, or he likes duck.
  4. The Persian isn't 3 years old. He doesn't like turkey nor duck.
  5. Chicken loving cat is 1 year older than the cat wearing a green collar.
  6. The cat with a pink collar is Asian, or he likes duck.
  7. The cat with the black collar is 1 year younger than the cat with the green one.

c2 and c7 tell us black, green, pink so white either 1 or 4. Clue 1 says white is 4. Ages done. Highlander is 2 (c1) and green (logic match).
logic_cats_1

Then

c5 says chicken is 3, therefore pink. c6 says also Asian. Asian, pink, 3,chicken done.
logic_cats_2

Next

c4 says Persian likes duck (he isn't 3 therefore doesn't like chicken). Persian can't be white (c1), so Manx is, and c3 says Manx likes duck. logic_cats_3

Finally

Highlander doesn't like chicken, so likes turkey. Rest is automatic.
