While I only got to see the second half of the tv special “Cat Dancers” I found the story very happy, and yet sad at the end.
The story explains how everything came to be, and how everything came to end. Ron Holiday, and his wife Joy Holiday started with an animal act stemming from a black leopard being given to them.
The tragedy in the story was when Chuck Lizza was attacked by Jupiter the Whilte Tiger.
Chuck was part of the well hidden love triangle.
The second tragedy was when Jupiter attacked the sick wife, Joy Holiday. After Joy died, Ron was eventually forced to vacate the property he was on, and because of a promise he made to the other 2, he had his two tigers put to sleep.
