The Flying Fur Balls are star acro-cats, drawing huge feline audiences. The latest recruit to the Fur Balls, Pete, is amazing – one night he is fired out of a cannon onto the high wire. He succeeds but his fur catches alight. He proceeds to unzip his ‘skin’ – Pete is really a mouse! With the audience furious, the other Fur Balls have to protect Pete. The next week he buys a new catsuit and relaunches his career as Pedro, the ‘new‘ acrocat!
