The Queen of the Cool Cats and Kittens, Carole Baskin, shared her strategy for DWTS:

The biggest thing for me is the longer my partner and I can stay in the running and in the competition it will keep the cats forefront in the viewers’ eye, and to me that was where Tiger King missed the ball.

It really should have been focused on the animals and I’m hoping Dancing with the Stars will do that.  I am competitive but I am competitive with myself I want to do the very best that I can possibly do.

Season 29 of “Dancing with the Stars” will premiere Monday, September 14 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
