Now his ultimate task is to get the four orphaned kittens into the care of another mother cougar with her single child while avoiding the threatening animals of the wild. Written by commanderblue

Another winner from Joe Camp and Benji
19 March 1999 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

As with the first two adventures the performance of Benji in this movie is amazing. What's more the makers have a bigger budget so the set pieces involving wild animals and the photography throughout is really sensational. Again this film got largely ignored - which is truly a shame.
