Their uncle, however, invariably maltreats them and this ultimately incites Catch to strike out with a frying pan, causing his uncle to fall and knock himself unconscious. Believing he has killed his uncle, Catch and his sister go on the run. They end up hiding out at the Taronga Park Zoo in Sydney, living in a cave within the bear sanctuary whilst their uncle tries to track them down.
