Cat Out of the Bag Alert! This review contains spoilers for this episode!
Synopsis: Two young men named Arthur Gilroy (John Wilder) and Lowell Rightmeyer (Jimmy Hawkins) arrive at the Shady Rest with the idea of robbing the train.
Cat Burglars (Scene Stealers): After having no luck robbing the train (the bank shipment only contained deposit slips and stationary supplies), the boys turn their attention to the safe at the Shady Rest. As they approach the safe, Betty Jo (Linda Kaye Henning) throws herself in front of it and begs them not to open it. Expecting riches, the boys open the safe only to find a tabby cat inside with her kittens.
Kate (Bea Benedict) scolds Betty Jo, reminding her that the safe is no place for Miranda. But Betty Jo insists that it’s where Miranda always likes to have her kittens.
This is undoubtedly another television appearance by prolific cat actor Orangey.
Final Mewsings: Mama cats like to keep their kittens safe.
