Post -3 to +3 user submitted puzzle
Here is a 7x7 puzzle I created, it uses the numbers -3 to 3, and to make it a bit different every cage value is either 1 or -1.

Do I make a mistake if I think two solutions exist?

-3 2 1 -2 -1 3 0
-2 -3 -1 3 1 0 2
0 -1 2 1 -2 -3 3
2 3 -2 -1 0 1 -3
3 -2 0 2 -3 -1 1
1 0 3 -3 2 -2 -1
-1 1 -3 0 3 2 -2

2 -3 0 -1 1 3 -2
3 2 1 -3 -1 -2 0
0 -1 -2 3 2 1 -3
-2 1 -1 2 0 -3 3
-3 0 2 -2 3 -1 1
1 3 -3 0 -2 2 -1
-1 -2 3 1 -3 0 2

I was not surprised when I read your message, I had checked the puzzle carefully, but it is too easy to make mistakes with these type of puzzles.
In your second solution cage c2 is not correct. The cage value is 1-, and you have 1, -3, -2, 3.
The first solution you listed is correct.
Thank you for your interest in my puzzles.
