Prey Of The Cat
6 February 2016 | by (Nashville, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

Bart's leg is broken when his horse is spooked by a mountain lion. A triangle develops between Bart and the couple who nurse him back to health. Kitty falls for Bart, albeit a one-way love. I was 12 when this episode aired and probably did not know what a "triangle" was. When they go hunting for the cat, Kitty's husband is killed with Bart getting the blame. The guilty Kitty goes insane. Bart tells her he is a drifter and a gambler. He has a taste for oysters and black coffee. Airing close to Christmas, there is a Christmas tree, and Jingle Bells is played. Kitty's husband gives Bart a wheelchair as a present. The image of the mountain lion is scary.
