they use a random number generator.

How do they come up with their ranking? For example, do they give a hit 1 point or 2 points?

Interesting question, and I dont have an exact answer - however Im pretty sure it is point based like you suggest, but rather each of the 5 cats is weighted against one another so one isnt more valuable than another. I doubt this helps answer your question other than to suggest you dont think about it in terms of points per stat.
