Lucky and Spike are two Spinifex Hopping Mice who we first met in "Spinifex Mouse", they leave their burrow each night in search of food and avoiding predators such as feral cats and ravenous owls. Every night Lucky and Spike hop over to the people's camp to eat the spinifex seeds that scatter when the women grind seeds for flour, but when they come face to face with a prowling cat the chase is on! Terrified, Lucky & Spike skid across the dirt & hide among the opeople who are dancing to the Didgeridoo, a camp dog joins the race and chases the cat....
