# Reading a Palindrome in Several Different Ways

Consider the pseudo-palindrome:

$WAS IT A CAT I SAW.$

In how many ways can $$WAS IT A CAT I SAW$$ be read if you may start at any $$W$$ and move only right, left, up, or down to adjacent letters? Keep in mind that each case can be counted twice since it is a palindrome and that the same letter can be used more than once in each sequence.
