I know there is a bit of Meerkat manor 5 stories on here but I was tempted! Anyway, this is about the Whiskers and their rivals and challegenges.
Meet the main meerkats
Sophie - The new leader of the Whiskers. After Rocket dog was hit by a car, Sophie became the leader. She is brave and as dependable as when she was when she was a subordinate. But with odds stacked against her, can she make it through her first year of leadership?
Squeak - The new partner at Sophie's side, Squeak is the last son of Big si and formally from the Lazuli. However, he went roving and was allowed to join the Whiskers. As Mitch joined the Lazuli Squeak was able to become the new dominant male. He is strong, tough and battle scarred.
Wilson - The envious former mate of Sophie. Jealous that Squeak has Sophie now, Wilson wants to try everything to get her back. Without Phillepe now, Wilson may have to join the Whiskers in order to get his girl back, but can he suceed?
Mitch - Whiskers hero and new dominant male of the Lazuli. Mitch now has a mate to call his own now and is just as heroic as he was in the Lazuli. But with his nephew Wollow becoming a threat, Mitch may not be as stable as he used to be.
Zaphod- The king of the Kalahari and dominant male of the Aztecs. Still loyal and brave, Zaphod still has youth in him. Despite ageing, Zaphod is still looking strong and still helps Maybelline in times of need. But his age is catching up on him, he might not have much years left to live.
Maybelline - Still the dominant female of the Aztecs, she is bringing up the Aztecs numbers to a health 19. When Zaphod isn't looking, she goes with rovers to make more pups and is no longer a rookie leader. However, there is a problem that may put her leadership into jepordy.
Young- The dominant female of the Lazul. She has currently been ruling for a year now and is stable in her position, unlike her partner Mitch. With her litter coming and Sophie usually leading burrow raids, can she overcome the odds and give birth successfully?
Kathleen- One of Maybelline's daughters, she is the problem that puts Maybelline's leadership into jeapordy. She must be able to overthrow her mother in order to get what she wants and take leadership for herself. But Maybelline has a suprise that might make her dream come crashing down.
Wollow- Mitch's biggest rival and contender for dominance. Leaving the Whiskers along with Mitch. He is ambitious and hungry for dominance. Maybe, if he is successful, Wollow can overthrow Mitch, take dominance for himself and become Young's new man.
Nugget- The final protagonist and young hero. Rocket dog's only son and now child after Beaker was predated. Nugget is fiesty and likes roving. He is also showing dominant male potential, but the Whiskers may not be the mob he can lead.

1. A new day
It has been a year since we've last seen Meerkat manor. Rocket Dog was sadly hit by a car, leaving brave Sophie as the dominant female. She now has a new man by her side too. Squeak, Big si's last son has taken the position. Mitch has joined the Lazuli and became the dominant male in the group. But with Squeak by Sophie's side, what about her old flame Wilson? He's jealously watching from the sideline. Now with his roving buddy Phillepe dead after both encountered a jackal, Wilson now has to go alone.
Meanwhile, in the Aztecs, Maybelline is now a fully fledged dominant female. She is no longer a rookie leader and has started to show a sneaky side When Zaphod's not looking, she goes mating with rovers. However there has been a problem since her two eldest daughters disappeared. Her third eldest daughter Kathleen. Maybelline must watch her back if she's still going to be dominant female. However the alarm is raised by her son General Durrel. A goshawk is circling overhead. Maybelline leads the Aztecs down a bolthole, but General Durrel is just too slow and is captured in the talons of the bird. It's a bad loss to lose any member, but the Aztecs must move on and continue foraging.
Back at the whiskers, Squeak has spotted someone. It's Wilson, whose trying to make a move. As quick as he can, Squeak begins to charge with a few other males, but Wilson isn't budging. He wants Sophie back and isn't intimidated by them. However, when Squeak reaches him, he launches a viscious attack on him and chases him out of the territory. However, with Squeak still chasing after Wilson, that has lead to another problem. The dreaded Commandos have targeted the Whiskers and with Squeak gone, the Whiskers are a man short. The leader of this operation is Miles. He didn't win the fight for dominance when he fought Baker, but after he died, Miles easily took dominance. He leads the Commandos in a furious charge. Sophie decides it's better to fight than flight. She slams right into long serving dominant female of the Commandos Nikita. Squeak comes back just in time and starts to tussle with Miles. Squeak is able to chase off Miles within a matter of minutes. The other Commandos run after him, including Nikita. This is the first time in a long time that the Whiskers have won against the Commandos. Thanks to Squeak, the Whiskers have no longer lost any territory. This leader will keep his crown for a while now, but can Squeak handle more challenges along the way? That will remain to be seen.
Next time: Wilson tries to get closer and Kathleen starts making more trouble.
2. Wilson's return
Previously on Meerkat Manor: It was discovered that Sophie was the new leader along with Squeak. Wilson tried to win her back, but Squeak wouldn't allow it, and after the Commandos attacked, Squeak showed more dominance.
It's morning at the Aztecs and Kathleen is first up. With Abaca and Tofu gone, she has became Maybelline's biggest rival and public enemy number one. She also has been playing a bit dangerously this time. Both her and her mother are pregnant. It would be wise to keep a low profile, but as a dominance seeker, of course all she wants to do is cause trouble! But Maybelline will have something up her sleeve since she currently isn't evicting her. What it is remains to be seen.
Meanwhile, another trouble maker has rudely awakened the Whiskers. It's Wilson. After getting visciously attacked by Squeak yesterday, he's getting revenge the old fashioned way. A good old scrap. He launches his attack with a jawlock. Squeak tries to desprately free himself, but he's facing a former commandos meerkat and another meerkat joins the fight. It's Nugget. He has been showing dominant male potential lately and he wants dominance now. He helps his father with the jawlock. Now with Squeak sandwhiched in between two males, can he fight both of them back?
Meanwhile, things have got uglier at the Aztecs. Not only has Kathleen got pregnant, she is starting to push her boundries, by digging in her mother's hole. Maybelline is now fed up. In an instant, Kathleen and her wingwoman, her younger sister Zelda, are victims of Maybelline's wrath. They have only been stings in her tail for two long. Now with both evicted, she can relax. Kathleen is in shock. This is her punishment for being so troublesome. At least she won't have to face the night alone. She still has Zelda, however as they will most likely never get back into their group, the girls may have to do something about that.
Meanwhile, the fight for dominance is getting even badder. Now not only Wilson, Squeak and Nugget are in the fight, Nugget's friends, Savuka and Flashman are in the fight. Savuka is even Squeak's son, but is still attacking his father, now out of the jawlock. Sophie watches on. Whoever wins this fight will become the dominant male of the Whiskers. Then the first male runs off. It's Nugget. In frustration, he runs away from his birth family and into the unpredictable outside world of roving. He won't be going back to the Whiskers anymore, but there may be a group with open arms, like when his mother reigned.
Next time on meerkat manor: Mitch and Wollow's stories start and the winner of the dominance fight is revelled .
3. A hard time
Last time on Meerkat manor: Wilson's envy got the better of him and challenged Squeak to a fight with Nugget, however, after being defeated, Nugget left his family and Maybelline kicked out her two rebellious daughters Kathleen and Zelda.
It's been a week since we've seen the manor and at the Lazuli, Mitch is first up. Now the dominant male of the Lazuli, he has a radio collar, along with his mate Young. However, Mitch isn't in much of a stable position like he was in the Whiskers. His brother Wollow wants top job as well. Not only is his dominance in the balance, Young is pregnant with his pups. If Wollow overthrows him, he can even kill the litter once they're born. Mitch will have to do something so that doesn't become a reality.
Meanwhile, Squeak is nowhere to be seen. He won the dominance fight, but he disappeared a few days later, when he and Amira were bitten by snakes. Amira also disappeared, along with Juno, who bravely went looking for his mother. Flashman and Savuka went roving and also disappeared, leaving the position unknown. Sophie is stresssed, but Wiley kat comforts her. Meanwhile, a jealous face watches them. It's Wilson. With Squeak gone, he could easily take dominance, but he has been warned by the Whiskers boys, so he's keeping his distance.
A kilometre away, Mitch and Wollow have gone off the rails and they are now fighting. Mitch's friend Rhogan Josh joins the fight too. Mitch bites into Wollow's leg, which will cause a whole lot of pain, however Wollow fights back with a powerful bite to the head. Rhogan Josh helps Mitch by attacking Wollow visciously. After Rhogan Josh gets Wollow off him, Mitch gets back into the fight. He evicts Wollow. Mitch's nephew Rufus and adopted Axel watch on amazed by this heroic king's bravery. It looks like Mitch will keep his crown for longer now.
Next time on meerkat manor: Wollow strikes gold, Nugget's roving leads him to a splinter group and two new bad boys show up on the manor.
4. Wollow's good luck
Previously on Meerkat manor: Wollow and Mitch fought for top spot in the Lazuli, while Squeak mysteriously disappeared with a snake bite. Mitch was able to get dominance by evicting Wollow and not letting him back into the group.
It's morning and a lone figure suns himself. It's Nugget. He tried to get both a female and a home at the Commandos, however Miles wouldn't let that happen. Now, Nugget is still by himself and looking for a new home. Once he has finished sunning himself, he gets going. If he wants a family to call home today, he has to make his move now. But where can he find a family he could lead? Only time will tell if Rocket Dog's now only child can carry on her short legacy.
Meanwhile, at the whiskers, a new general watches over his family. It's Ella's eldest son Gump. although being just one year old, Gump is reliable, strong and brave. These are the qualities for a good litter and it's a good time to have a new dominant male. Squeak's last offspring, Pitio, Mark and Devil have been born. They will need all the help they can get now through this precious time. Gump will hopefully pick up where his father left off and maaybe one day, he will have children of his own in a different family.
Things couldn't of been so different for poor Wollow. Once the fierce competitor for the Lazuli throne, Wollow is now a wondering outcast. However, he has a mission that will get him to be king this time. Like Nugget, his roving will hopefully lead him to a group without a dominant male. Then, Wollow sees two lone females, foraging near the Aztecs territory. It's Kathleen and Zelda. Both of them are still outcasted by their mother. Wollow seeks an oppertunity. All he has to do now is wait to be noticed.
What Wollow doesn't know is that three new males have joined the Aztecs. Candy Flip, Yabou and their father and new leader of the group Bruce see him as a threat and they see him off. Bruce resumes to foraging. His collar however, wasn't put on yesterday though. He was the dominant male of a wild gorup that had just started to get used to humans. However, he was overthrown by another male and now he is here. But where is granddad Zaphod?
Zaphod is now just an unknown outcast. But what will he do now? He has been through a lot in these last few years, losing his mate Flower, not being as much use as he used to and now he has been overthrown by Bruce. He sees his two granddaughters. Maybe he can join them? He makes his move, however threatened Kathleen chases him off. Kathleen will stop at nothing to get back into the Aztecs, but how. She sees Candy Flip and Yabou leave the group. Maybe if she and Zelda follow them, once they come back, so will the chance of coming back to the group.
Meanwhile, Nugget has found a new group. It's a small splinter group of a group called the Hoppla. This group of just 11 is led by dominant male Alfred, who has the radio collar and dominant female Ellie. Nugget cautiously makes his move, though an eagle is circling overhead. Alfred and Ellie, who are in the main group are nowhere to be seen and the only meerkats there are females. Nugget runs into the bolthole with the Hoppla girls. Maybe if they accept him, he can be part of a family again.
Meanwhile, two once bitter enimies have teamed up. Envious Wilson and his biggest rival for Sophie, Squeak, are roving together. Squeak reappeared almost fully recovered from his snake bite the day after he was bitten. Now that he is fully recovered, he should be heading back to the Whiskers. However, Gump didn't let him back in. Now, he has met up with Wilson and they are now roving buddies. Wilson also has a plan. Conquer the main group of the Hoppla.
Unfortunately, Alfred watches him carefully. If they make one wrong move, he will spot him better in the tall grass. He hides in wait.Although the two meerkats can't see him, he can see them. Wilson however, is a professional and sees Ellie. She warms up to him, as well as another female, Vriska is attracted to Squeak. Ellie goes with Wilson, much to Alfred's unhappiness. Vriska follows her mother and the four meerkats head away. A furious Alfred scent marks the territory and he is comforted by his best mate Bernard.
Meanwhile, Wollow has returned to the Lazuli, much to Mitch's dismay. Now, he strikes out at him, however Mitch counters with another jaw lock. Wollow tries to free himself, though with not much success. Meanwhile, Young watches on. Maybe she will have a new mate this time. Wollow has been able to break free of Mitch's jaw lock and is able to evict him. He has won. Wollow has overthrown Mitch and is now the dominant male. He will make sure that no one will take his place for a while.
Next time on Meerkat manor: Nugget and his splinter group meet the main group, Wilson takes control of his new group and Mitch tries to return to the Whiskers.
5. Letting go and getting back
Last time on Meerkat Manor: Zaphod was found out to be ousted by the much younger Bruce as the dominant male of the Aztecs. Gump was found out to be the dominant male of the Whiskers now and Squeak returned and teamed up with Wilson to make a new group with some Hoppla females. Nugget found a splinter group of Hoppla females and Wollow took dominance from Mitch, fufilling his ambitions.
There's a rude awakening to the Hoppla splinter group with Nugget in it. The burrow is becoming unstable. But why? Nugget is the first to investigate. He comes out and sees something he's never seen before. It's a gemsbok. A large antelope, gemsbok aren't a real threat to meerkats, though burrows can collapse because of them. It's time for a move. Most of the girls were rudely awakened, which is good news. Nugget begins to lead his group away from the unstable bolthole.
Meanwhile, Alfred's main group is already out foraging. Unhappy about losing his mate, Alfred is taking his anger out on his best mate Bernard. Bernard hardly goes near Aldred now, since he's became so aggresive. However, there's something that's going to become worse. Seelia, a young female, raises the alarm.
