Toni lives with her father, writer Matthew Martin, in the Sequoia forests of California. While walking, she finds and brings home, a small puma which she calls 'Gato' and a young fawn, called 'Malibu'. The three become friends which violates the normal rules of nature. After a few years, Toni and her dad leave and Gato and Malibu are returned to the wild. They do their animal things, but the two are still friendly. When Toni and Matthew return, they find that logging and hunting have decimated the animals in the area. They also find that their neighbor, Bergman, who has trapped animals for years, is now leading hunting parties and kills even the fawns. It is up to Gato and Malibu if they are to survive.Written by

It does exist
Vironpride...I just finished watching this black & white film on Turner Classic Movies. So, you'll be happy to know it is still out there. It's an interesting story about animals, a bit far-fetched but fun just the same. The story of the young girl finding the baby animals is sweet, and the fact that they become fast friends is feasible. I'm sure as ten-year-old's you and I would have loved this movie. The story line is a bit hokey but not unusual for the times. There are some beautiful shots of the animals in their natural settings. All-in-all I enjoyed the film, more for the animals than the acting or storyline. I'm sure you'll be pleased to know, it does still exist.
