Characters present[]


A big rainstorm has hit the rainforest, and lots of animals need help from Diego and his family. Before long, Diego thought of rescuing a mother Pampas Cat from a tall tree and her kittens from the waterfall. In the end, everyone (including the Bobos) help repair the Animal Rescue Center.

Pampas Cat Facts[]

  • Pampas cats live in the grasslands because they stay safe by hiding in the grass, not the snow because it's too cold.
  • Pampas cats look big to keep scary animals (such as foxes, especially Swiper) away by fluffing up, not scratching their heads.
  • Pampas cats have whiskers, not beaks like most birds.
  • Pampas cats are afraid of foxes.

Episode Events[]

  • Diego helped the pampas cat by taking its kittens to the rescue center, not the swimming pool.
