1) You would agree that no cat has 8 tails? Yes
2) You would agree that one cat has got one more tail than no cat? Yes
Therefore, one cat, has one more tail than no cat (which has 8 tails) and so it has 9 tails.
I love being clever, and I love being cleverer than you.
Thank you very much.

Or is it that 'if a cat has nine tails' then *no cat has eight tails' but 'since one cat has one more tail than no cat, it must have nine tails' !
