Cat register

  • 2
  • Locked
Sometimes an acute shortage of cats is felt more keenly than hunger. To combat this unpleasant feeling, you need to implement the addNewCat method, which will add a new cat to your program each time it is called. Use it carefully. More cats means more responsibility. Don't forget to increase the counter by one each time a cat is created.

please advise why this addNewCat() method has to be declared as "static", as I have tried many times with no static, which is always fail to increase cat number by 1. public static void addNewCat() { catCount = catCount + 1; }

++catCount increments the value and immediately returns it. catCount++ also increments the value but returns the unchanged value of the variable.
